    Please make sure you are watching the Science Fair due dates posted in Canvas. This required project consists of 3 parts that are due on Feb. 1:  A handwritten logbook, a powerpoint, and a digital poster. All 3 parts are worth 2 test grades. In addition, this project has several progress checks along the way which are worth homework grades. All information for this important project was sent home in November and is posted in the Science Fair Canvas Module.

    Please don't procrastinate!  I am looking forward to seeing several of you winning awards at the competitions!
