Meadow Montessori School: Celebrating Scientific Curiosity and Critical Thinking through Annual Science Fair Success

Exploring Fish, Chicks, and Wind Turbines at Meadow’s Science Fair

Seventeen Meadow Montessori School students recently took part in the school’s annual 2024 Science Fair and earned ribbons for their projects. The event has been held since 1986 and involves students from kindergarten through eighth grade.

Meg Fedorowicz, the Science Fair coordinator, highlighted the importance of the event as a celebration of learning. She emphasized that the scientific method is a valuable tool for critical thinking, which is a key aspect of the education provided at Meadow Montessori.

Students from various grade levels received ribbons for their impressive projects. From kindergarteners studying the life cycle of a fish to seventh and eighth graders comparing foundation and skin tone, the diversity of topics and the effort put into each project was evident in the results.

The judges for this year’s science fair were Sarah Howard, Cale Piedmonte-Lang, Stephanie Slat, and Frank Tryrbon. They reviewed each project and awarded prizes to the top three in five different age groupings.

The success of the Science Fair showcases the dedication of both students and teachers at Meadow Montessori School. It is a tradition that continues to inspire young minds to explore science and embrace critical thinking skills that will serve them well into adulthood.
