Each spring our students in 3rd through 8th grades participate in the ACSI science fair. This gives them the opportunity to apply the scientific method to the exploration of God’s creation. It also gives them practice in technical writing and oral presentation skills.
Most of all, the science fair is designed to help students study science from a biblical perspective. Students conduct their science fair research and experimentation in light of the truth that God is the creator and sustainer of this world and that God has established the laws and characteristics that we get to ‘discover’ and put to practical use.
The science fair packet is now available for download.
