WAYS TO HELP SPREAD SCIENCE


Jarrettown Elementary Fair

We are currently hoping for some volunteers to:
  • Present the scientific method (via testing paper towel absorbancy) to students; 3-4 students sometime early January
  • Judge the Jarrettown Elem Fair on Feb _ (need to miss 3hrs of school); 4-5 students
  • Exhibit hands-on activities at the science fair __ from 6pm-8pm

Thomas Fitzwater Elementary Fair

We are currently hoping from some volunteers to:
  • Act as mentors for students at TFES who are attempting a science fair project
  • Meet one time per week (prob Wed or Thurs) throughout January from 3:30-4:15...maybe up until their fair in Feb/March
  • This is a great NHS project!
  • Can trade off as pairs if you can't go every week
  • Hoping for 4-8 kids
