Connolly School fifth-graders put their scientific knowledge to the test during the school’s annual Science Fair.

The fair was the culminating event to the students’ recent studies of the scientific method, which, according to fifth-grade teacher Susan Stanco, included classroom lessons on dissecting hypotheses and the use of different variables. As part of the learning process, each student was tasked with creating a science project at home and given an opportunity to demonstrate it for classmates and teachers at the fair.
