Brockbank sixth-grade students participated in a science fair. Students learned about the scientific process and were then challenged to go home and conduct an experiment that answered a scientific question. The sixth-grade teachers were amazed at the quality of work done by the students. The students worked really hard on their projects. Parents and students from younger grades had the opportunity to go into the gym and look at the projects and ask questions. Everyone enjoyed the science fair and it gave the younger grade students ideas for when they get to participate in the science fair!
