One of the most exciting events for Challenger students each year is the Science Fair. In the months preceding the contest, students come up with their project hypotheses and conduct experiments using the scientific method to test their assertions.
Students in kindergarten through grade 2 work in groups to research, document, and present their findings. Beginning in third grade, students complete individual projects, and from fifth grade forward, the projects are assessed by judging panels. At the campus Science Fair, parents and teachers can peruse exhibits and discuss with students their ingenious and thought-provoking experiments and inventions.
Challenger has developed a tradition of excellence in science. Each year, many Challenger students earn regional awards and advance to state finals and beyond. Quite a few Challenger students over the years have achieved prestigious honors in nationwide science competitions, too!
