School NewsComments Off on Students: Register for the OUSD Science & Engineering Fair by March 24

Do you want to challenge students to investigate a question or problem in more detail? Then check out the OUSD Science & Engineering Fair (OSEF). This year marks OSEF’s 63rd year, and the second year we have gone virtual. Supporting our students in completing a science or engineering project at home is an empowering and celebratory way to close out the school year. Science and engineering projects are inherently interdisciplinary and are a great way to challenge our students and measure their progress on a variety of standards. By participating in OSEF, our students will:

  • Strengthen their STEM skills
  • Get feedback on their project from STEM professionals
  • Have the chance to meet virtually with a STEM professional to talk about their project and learn about their research/job
  • Be awarded a certificate, a ribbon or medal, and be entered into a raffle for additional prizes
  • Get the reward of “finishing a hard process” and “getting to learn a lot” as students who participated as last year put it S

Some important info:

  • OSEF takes place May 3-7, 2021.
  • Students must register for OSEF by March 24. This helps the district OSEF team order appropriate supplies and recruit the right number of judges.
  • Students must submit their projects by April 28.

During synchronous class sometime between May 5-7, teachers will host STEM professionals on Zoom and manage breakout rooms so students can talk about their projects with scientists and engineers
