UES Science Fair:

Science is about exploration and discovery of "Everything Under the
Sun"...and more! The Unionville Elementary Science Fair provides an
opportunity for curious young scientists to gain an exposure to the
scientific process of solving science-related problems, and at the same
time have fun while they experience the world in a hands-on way! The
Science Fair is a great way to give students an early positive experience
with science and is a great way to build self-esteem. Although projects are
not judged, each student who chooses to participate will be recognized for
their effort. All children (K-5th) can participate in UE's annual Science

Proposal forms and instructions can be found at the following link:

Proposal Forms should be turned into the office by March 28th. Displays
should be brought to school on the morning of May 15th and may be taken
home that evening at the end of Open House (May 15th at 6:30 pm).
