Sci-Con is coming!
This year Esther Lindstrom Elementary in Lakewood, CA is turning the science fair concept on its head. Students from grades 3-6 participating in the event, billed as a "new kind of science fair," will come dressed as a famous historical scientist. Students are required to know the biography of their scientist and to come prepared with a live demonstration that illustrates the key scientific principle their scientist discovered. The event, which will take place in the school cafeteria, is designed to place emphasis on the process of science, as well as the historical context in which scientific discoveries have been made.
The event will also include D.I.Y. science projects for visitors to try, as well a demonstration of how a theremin works. The evening will end with a Comic-Con style "panel" of "scientists" and their great discoveries.
Come join us for this exciting event!
