La Feria de Ciencias!

Arco Iris is thrilled to sponsor our first La Feria de Ciencias (Science Fair)! The Science Fair will take place at the school Wednesday, March 21st from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

The Science Fair will give our students the opportunity to use the scientific method to answer questions they develop from their own observations and to share what they learn with the school community.

Participation in the science fair is required for our 4th/5th grade class, and optional, but highly encouraged, for our 1st-3rd graders to participate.  Five projects from Arco Iris will be selected to go to the Beaverton School District Science Expo on May 3 at Tektronix!

Today during morning meeting, we talked about science experiments using the terms question (pregunta), hypothesis, (hipótesis), variable (variable) and data (datos). In a couple of weeks, we will talk about the Science Fair and the display boards. The final poster boards will be written in Spanish. Not to worry, translation help will be provided – see the attachments below! Please read the attached Experiment Information and Sample Display to learn more. Please note – Experiment Registration forms are due Friday, February 10th!

We need parents to “judge” the experiments during the science fair, so if you are interested in participating please let us know. In the meantime, please start some conversations with your child(ren) about what they are interested in, or have questions about in science and the world and get those creative and inquisitive minds functioning to their maximum potential.  Contact Michelle Cordier at or Christie Engesser Cesar at with questions or to volunteer.
