Science Fair 2013 Review

Written by

On Tuesday, May 28th, The Hebrew Academy conducted its fourth annual Science Fair. The students had a wonderful opportunity to explore the fascinating world of scientific investigation as well as enhance their research, writing, thinking, listening and speaking skills. Each student in grades 2 through 8 was responsible for writing a research report, creating a tri-board display and making a presentation to a panel of judges about their scientific findings. The students in grades Kindergarten and 1st made a classroom project with their teacher.

All of the students worked diligently on their projects, the results of which were amazing; and the enthusiasm with which the students made their presentations was exhilarating. We were very fortunate to have two experienced people be the judges for this event – Mr. Stu Salkin (Assistant Superintendent of the Mahwah School District) and Mrs. Bryant (nurse). Both judges made comments about how impressed they were with the knowledge that was gained by the students and how well they know the scientific investigation process.

While all of the students are winners, the following students won specific awards:

First Place:

Eitan Chamish – What are the Responses of Annelidas?
