Celebrating Scientific Inquiry: Meadow Montessori’s Annual Science Fair Brings Out Students’ Best

Exploring Fish, Chicks, and Wind Turbines at Meadow’s Science Fair

In 2024, seventeen students from Meadow Montessori School participated in the school’s annual Science Fair and earned ribbons for their projects. This tradition has been held since 1986 and is unique to Meadow Montessori as it is the only school in the county that still hosts a school-wide science fair. Students from kindergarten through eighth grade participated in the event, showcasing their scientific knowledge and skills through presentations and displays.

Judges reviewed each project and awarded prizes to the top three in five different age groupings. The judges for this year’s science fair were Sarah Howard, Cale Piedmonte-Lang, Stephanie Slat, and Frank Tryrbon. Meg Fedorowicz, the Science Fair coordinator, emphasized the importance of the event as a celebration of learning and highlighted the scientific method as a valuable tool for critical thinking, which is a key aspect of the education provided at Meadow Montessori.

The diversity of topics and effort put into each project was evident in the results. From kindergarteners studying the life cycle of a fish to seventh and eighth graders comparing foundation and skin tone, students demonstrated their understanding of various scientific concepts through their projects. The success of the Science Fair showcases the dedication of both students and teachers at Meadow Montessori School.
