Meadow Montessori School Science Fair 2024: A Celebration of Learning and Critical Thinking

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. The event, which has been held since 1986 and involves students from kindergarten through eighth grade, is a celebration of learning and the scientific method.

Meg Fedorowicz, the Science Fair coordinator, emphasized the importance of the event as a valuable tool for critical thinking. She highlighted the scientific method as a key aspect of the education provided at Meadow Montessori School. Students from various grade levels received ribbons for their impressive projects, which ranged from studying the life cycle of a fish to comparing foundation and skin tone.

The judges for this year’s science fair were Sarah Howard, Cale Piedmonte-Lang, Stephanie Slat, and Frank Tryrbon. They reviewed each project and awarded prizes to the top three in five different age groupings. The diversity of topics and the effort put into each project was evident in the results.

The success of the Science Fair showcases the dedication of both students and teachers at Meadow Montessori School. As one of only schools in the county that still hosts a school-wide science fair, Meadow Montessori continues to provide its students with opportunities to explore their interests in science and develop critical thinking skills.
