Science Fair

​​DSC_0056.JPG   Brock Corydon School held its annual Science Fair on Wednesday, March 9th. There was a buzz of excitement in the air in the preceding days, and once the event was underway, it was clear to see why. Over 50 students entered the event, with a total of 39 fantastic projects on display. Nearly 30 guest judges attended, including teachers and administrators from other schools, university students, and Brock Corydon alumni! Throughout the day, staff, students, friends and family were also able to browse the displays and take it all in.

   The Science Fair was once again organized by Mrs. Goddard and Mrs. Lercher. When asked how the fair benefits the participants, Lercher responded, “When they work on a project from start to finish, they have a real sense of accomplishment after. Many projects start with a very simple question or idea and as they progress it’s amazing to see what can happen.” She calls these projects the ultimate “What if?” learning opportunity.

   Events like this truly hold something for everyone. Some students build models or manipulate objects; others express their artistry with stunning backdrops. Many projects are created in tandem with ideas flowing between two minds, while others are created at the pace of an independent learner. Spectators may be inspired to try some of the ideas on their own, or to enter the fair next year. Even the big day itself allows for differentiation – there are categories for competitive and non-competitive entries.

   Twenty entries will go on to represent Brock Corydon at the Winnipeg School Division Science Fair on April 13th, at the University of Manitoba. Although not everyone gets to compete at the next event, everyone won at learning on this day!
