Crestview PS holds their biggest science and math fair

The gymnasium was abuzz at Crestview Public School as more than 100 student science and math projects were on display.

For several weeks, students were encouraged to explore topics they found interesting, and create a display for the fair based on their research. Topics and displays included magic tricks and the probability of picking certain cards; testing different ways water travels through paper towel from cup to cup; how to make a robotic hand out of drinking straws, cardboard, string and silver rings; and a yummy experiment – how to make ice cream quick and with only a few ingredients!

It was a great evening for all as it gave Crestview PSĀ students a chance to explain their projects to family and community members who dropped by the event. Way to go, Cougars!

A BIGĀ thank you to Lyndsay Morrison from CTV Kitchener for covering this event on the 6:00 p.m., and to Kitchener City Councillor Scott Davey and City of Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic for supporting student learning!
