Manlius Pebble Hill School Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Fair!

To conserve a variety of resources, we are sending this green invitation to be a part of the Manlius Pebble Hill School Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Fair!

Approximately 150 students in Fifth through Eighth Grade are currently designing and executing individual projects rooted in science, technology, engineering, and math. They will present their completed projects at the Fair on Thursday, March 15th from 5:15 to 9 p.m.

A critical component of the Fair experience centers around the discussions students will have about their work with two evaluators. Those discussions require organization, clarity of thought, and the ability of students to express their ideas. Each year, volunteers from the MPH community share their time and talent by serving as Fair evaluators. We are now looking for 65 individuals who would like to support our young scientists and be a part of their learning process as evaluators at this year's STEM Fair.

For those new to this event, it is a celebration of student work. The evening does not include the awarding of places, prizes, or awards. (Those students seeking a competitive fair are urged to participate in the Greater Syracuse Scholastic Science Fair sponsored by the M.O.S.T.) Evaluators are asked to engage students in conversation about the goals and achievements of their projects, as well as about aspects of their work that may have generated more questions and further curiosity about the topic.  Refreshments will be provided.

We hope you will consider being an evaluator at our STEM Fair. To join with us in offering our students a vigorous experience, please simply reply to this e-mail with your name and preferred e-mail address, so we may contact you with additional details as the date approaches. If you know of other potential evaluators, please send their names along, too, or forward this message to them. I hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you,
