2018 IIT Academy Science Fair

Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

Dear Parents,

I trust all IIT Academy families have had a wonderful Winter break. It was nice to see the students back and eager to learn.

As you all know on Wednesday 21st February 2018  IIT Academy will be hosting its Annual Science Fair.  All students from grades 3 and up are working hard towards completing their Science Fair projects. Final projects are due on Monday 12th February 2018 for in class presentations.  Science teachers will be judging all groups to select top five Science projects from each grade to be presented in the IIT Academy Science Fair. Please find the attached rubric that the teachers will be using to mark the projects.

Next week, we will have the project display boards on sale at the school for a fraction of the price charged at most retail office supply stores. Each Science fair display board can be purchased for $5 from homeroom teachers.  Money for the display boards will be collected by the student’s respective homeroom teachers.  Please follow the picture below that represents the board layout.

We are looking for parent volunteers to help with the Science Fair, if you can help on Wednesday 21st February 2018, please email Sr. Farheen at farheen.ahmad@iitacademy.ca

If you have any questions, please contact Sr. Farheen, Sr. Sufia and Sr. Ruby for more information.
