Providence Christian Academy holds an in-house science fair. In previous years PCA competed in the Prince William Science Fair with the following results: several students placed and were invited to participate at higher level science fairs.
The downloadable documents provide important information students will need as they prepare and present their science fair projects. The science fair project will contain three major parts: research paper, experiment, including a project report; and display board.
Participating in a science fair benefits the student in several ways. An obvious benefit is learning more about a particular aspect of science; another is applying the scientific method of question, hypothesis, experimentation, and conclusion. Two less obvious benefits, but ones that are equally important, are learning the research process and following a schedule; both of these benefits are important skills for further education and for life.
