Intel Mini Scientist

Our third class, fourth, fifth and sixth classes have entered the Intel Mini-Scientist Competition.  Children explore science through project based learning and present it in an exhibition.  Children work on their projects as individuals or in groups of up to four people. They come up with their own scientific investigation. Each group will present their own project in a project book and visual display. On Tuesday November 8th the Intel judges visited our school to choose our winners.  On Wednesday November 9th the classes presented their projects to parents.  Our school winner will represent us in the Regional Final.
