Science Fair 2022

Attention 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders!

Science Fair 


It’s that glorious time of year again where Rheem students get to think, create, question, explore, observe, investigate, analyze, share, and become young scientists! This year marks the Science Fair’s 35th anniversary. Over the past three decades, our young scientists at Rheem have experimented with different paper airplanes for flying, making edible slime, dissolving candy in soda, swabbing different spots around school for germs, and many more fun projects. 


This year we are aiming for an in-person event (but will provide further instructions if we need to switch to virtual mode). The Science Fair is open to students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. Young scientists may work in groups of up to 3 students, from any of the grades listed above.  Students will use the scientific method of investigation to work on a safe, non-hazardous, hands-on project. Each group will work on one report and poster board. The Science Fair Committee will be available to advise and guide our fearless young scientists along the way.
