Alameda Science Fair

Three 4th grades and three 5th grades were involved in the Alameda Science Fair May 9, 2002. The fair gave students experience in using the Scientific Method which will soon be tested for Oregon benchmarks.

Students were judged on their ability to write a hypothesis, conduct an experiment, collect and display the data for their experiment and reach a conclusion on whether they had proven their original hypothesis.They were judged on their research for background information; poster or display; oral presentation and ability to answer the judge's questions; and thoroughness of their journal documenting their science fair project.

Judging the fair were former and current Ontario School District personnel: Elaine Russell, Myron Carpenter, Bob Feasel, Joyce Whittet, Dean Seward and Suzanne Uchida.
