NSTA STEM Forum New Orleans

I am presenting and soooo excited! Earlier in the year, during football season, my colleagues and I were sitting in a professional development class, when we were toying with a new unit per our pd instructor and we got so excited about it, we decided to use it! We had a meeting after school the following week and invited the entire staff... Only a handful showed up, so that handful created an awesome unit and now we are going to New Orleans to present it! If you are going to the conference, stop by to check it out! More information to follow soon...

Need science fair project help?

Do you need help looking for project ideas or you just need a completed project that you can use as a model? I am working on adding completed projects to my TPT store. I just added the first one: "Don't Even Sink About It"! It is about buoyancy and density with soda vs. diet soda. This experiment is more for the 3rd-5th grade groups. Below are pictures of a third grade class doing this experiment. After the experiment we weighed sugar vs. artificial sweetner and the difference amazed even me!
