FALC Celebrates Learning at 27th Annual Science Fair
This year, young scholars, ages two to five, took a scientific journey of land, air, sea and space to unravel some mysteries of our world. With their teachers as trusted guides, students made authentic connections to sensorial exploration, mindfulness/spiritual wellness, natural disasters and phenomena, current events, technological advances/inventions, relative professions, and health, safety and security matters. In their classroom learning stations and on-site STREAM lab, students presented their action-based research, sharing knowledge about their experience and process. The fair offers students the opportunity to showcase their scientific learning, experiments and family projects about nature’s elements of earth, air, water, fire and space, as well as answer questions.
FALC continuously strives to serve as a catalyst of change and transformative learning. The annual science fair has long been a staple of program’s curriculum and family engagement activities, focusing on the quality of process and interaction versus the product. This interdisciplinary approach to learning exemplifies FALC’s Plant-A-Dream curriculum, in which children are connected to the real and natural world. Using varied activities and materials based on the theory of multiple intelligences as the entry point, students are encouraged to ask questions, make hypotheses, reflect, explore, observe, collaborate and integrate their curiosity, creativity and learning into their everyday lives.
