Medart Elementary School’s first annual Science Expo held on February 11 was a great experience for all participants. 

 

The Science Expo gave 5th grade students at MES the opportunity to conduct an investigation or experiment on a scientific topic. All 5th grade students utilized their science knowledge and skills through scientific understanding and implementation to conduct creative and innovative experiments and investigations. 

 

The Science Expo was conducted in conjunction with Wakulla Middle School‘s science program. WMS science students conducted experiments in classroom with primary grades and utilized their science understanding to be judges for the Medart Science Expo categories.
