Science is an important part of learning at The Phoenix Rising School! Our annual Science Fair is always a time of great excitement and personal investment for our students. They work hard to research, organize, and build their own projects. There was great participation this year, with some as young as Kindergarten taking part. Many students showed the amazing dedication to their projects, from pumping up bottles so that the change in pressure could form clouds, to collecting data from tests on volunteers for several days before.
 
With great collection and analysis of data, students isolated variables and tested many times to verify their results. Many included detailed documentation of the engineering work that went into building the experiments. Students did a great job internalizing and understanding the science behind their projects. Projects were judged on 12 criteria and students were awarded badges in the three areas that they excelled the most in. After the Judges made the rounds and began to tally the results, students were able to explore the science fair and experience the presentations and experiments that their friends and fellow students were excited to share. It was an exhilarating day that will be a fond memory for our students for years to come. View photos here.
