Science FairMarch 31, 2021
RHS students are not required to complete science fair projects as a classroom expectation. We have found that coerced projects rarely lead to meaningful learning. However, the teachers and administrators École Robert H. Smith School support grades 4 to 6 students to participate in the division-wide competitive Science Fair. RHS students who participate in the Manitoba Science prepare at home and access support at the school-level as needed. Students express an interest to their teacher and the school ensures each student is provided with a backboard.
