Life School Science Fair Winners

Life School Holds District-Wide Science Fair

Six Life School elementary campuses came together for the Life School District Science Fair at Life School Red Oak Elementary on February 24, 2023. The district also partnered with The Perot Museum for the event. While students waited to present their projects to the judges, they participated in STEM activities with employees from the Perot Museum.

Student presentations began at 9:00 a.m., with students from each grade presenting to judges as they were questioned about their presentations and why they chose the topics. Judges included volunteers from the community and Life School employees. Judges from the community were all returning judges from previous years.

Before the district competition, each campus held its own science fair, judging and examining the projects the students created. Then, they sent the first-place contenders to compete at the district level. In addition to the hard work on their projects, students were expected to give formal presentations to the judges.

The science fair began nine years ago, according to Melissa Brown, Curriculum Coordinator for Science. Brown said “It was evident that the students at this year’s Elementary Science Fair had prepared to effectively communicate. The students cheerfully greeted the judges and continuously engaged with them while they presented their projects. We are so proud of our Life School students!”

Third-grade winners were Sarayah Ray from Life School Oak Cliff (1st); Jami Oluwajomi from Life School Mountain Creek (2nd); and Aaron Myers, Kayla Ntwari and Neveah Winters from Life School Carrollton (3rd).
