Captivating curiosity at Wading River School Science Fair

To help inspire the next generation of scientists, Wading River School is hosting a Science Fair on Wed., February 28. The action-packed, scientifically engaging evening is an opportunity to promote curiosity, discovery and spark an interest in exploration in the 3-5 grade students.

“Scientific discovery becomes more and more essential as we compete on a global scale and grapple with the challenges facing us and future generations,” said Principal Louis Parrinello. “The Science Fair offers our students a chance to explore innovative ideas while learning how to make scientific advances on their own or with the help of a family member or friend.”

Students can enter one of three categories – Discovery, Curator and Expedition, which is for those who would like to be considered for eligibility in Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Science Fair, where they will conduct research on a topic of interest using the Scientific Method.
Due to the popularity of the Fair, the school is hosting visits as follows:

Grade 3: 5 – 5:45 p.m.
Grade 4: 6:15 – 7 p.m.
Grade 5: 7:30 – 8:15 p.m.

All students at the school will have the opportunity to visit the exhibits on March 1.
