NUSD CELEBRATES 25 YEARS

Let’s celebrate! Come and join the fun as NUSD salutes its 25th Anniversary with a free community barbecue April 1 featuring student performances, games, music, and bounce houses. Festivities are planned from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 1, at Inderkum High School, 2500 New Market Dr. The celebration honors the 25 years that NUSD has been a unified district, offering classes from kindergarten through high school. Prior to 1992, Natomas was an elementary district. Its students attended local schools through 8th grade, then enrolled in other districts for high school. Questions about the April 1 celebration? Call Dolly McClellan at 567-5402.

The Heron Science Fair

When: Tuesday, May 3rd

Where: Heron Multi-Purpose Room

Who: K-8th We encourage all students to participate. Participants can be individuals or teams of two.  Science Fair Applications are due Friday, April 1st.

The Science Fair is an opportunity for students to explore and observe the world around them and learn the scientific process by conducting an experiment. An opportunity to be a real scientist!

How to Complete a Science Fair Project using the The Scientific Method:

Step 1A: Choose a science topic that interest you : Life Science, Physical Science, or Earth and Space Science.

Step 1B: Ask a Question: Be an observer.  Find what SPARKS your curiosity.  What would you like to know? “ I wonder why…”  Choose a question to explore.

Step 1C: Research your topic using a variety of resources:  books, interviews, internet, magazines, etc.

Step 2:  State your Hypothesis: Based on your research and knowledge make an educated guess to your question.

Step 3: Conduct your Experiment: (The exciting part! Take a lot of pictures!) You are ready to test your hypothesis. Clearly list the materials, variables: independent (what you changed), dependent (what changed as a result of changing something else), and/or constant (what remained the same), step-by –step procedures, and the number of trials conducted.  A good experiment has at least 3 trials. The more trials the better!

Step 4: Collect, Record, and Analyze the Data : (Results)  Record your data. Based on the data you’ve collected, write down the results of your experiment. Tables, graphs, charts, and drawings are  great ways to show your results.

Step 5: Conclusion: Summarize your findings. Share whether or not you were able to prove your hypothesis. What did you learn from the experiment? What could be done differently to the experiment next time? Application:  How does your experiment apply to the real world? Why is it important?

Other requirements: Tri-Fold Display Board
The display board must have a title, the steps in the scientific method are clearly labeled, and all pictures, charts, graphs are properly placed. Overall, the display board must be neat, easy-to-read, and well organized.
