Public Exhibition of Projects
Presented by PerkinElmer
The public is invited to view the research posters on display throughout the day. Research projects were done by Upper School students as part of the new dual enrollment "Scientific Research and Design
" course in partnership with the University of Texas—Austin. Students design and implement their own research project (field of subject varies) while learning the skills that go into research. These projects will go on to Austin’s Regional Science Fair, an affiliate of the Intel international Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF).
What’s That?! Contest
Prize sponsored by Raising Cane’s
Have you ever wondered: What’s That?! Use your science knowledge to see if you can identify what is going on in the five displayed images. Pictures show things close up, far away, or just plain unusual. The person who correctly identifies all five will win a gift basket from Raising Cane’s. (In the event of multiple winners, one will be selected from a raffle.)
I Wonder Wall
In the spirit of this year’s theme: “Wonder. Discover. Science.” visitors to the symposium are invited to contribute to the I Wonder Wall. The wall is a collection of ideas of wonder: What would happen if…? This collection of ideas will help future students generate and consider research topics to dive into for their independent research projects next school year. Everyone is invited to contribute to this interactive display.
Art Exhibit: “Waves, Light and Sound”
As part of an integrated unit on waves, light and sound, first grade students at the 31st Street campus with their teachers conducted scientific investigations and research around these topics. In addition to tackling a challenge that brought these science ideas together as a culminating project, students also created original stained glass art pieces. Learn more about the scientific principles behind waves, light and sound while checking out the stained glass artwork on display in The Robert E. Clarke, Jr. Gallery.
Research Oral Presentations
2 sessions at 1:15 pm, 2:40 pm
Students showcasing projects at the symposium will give oral presentations of their research in the afternoon during two scheduled sessions. (Please reference the specific schedule regarding exact times for specific projects.) Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with the students and ask questions about their projects. Seating is limited. Open to the public.
Periodic Table collaboration with University of Waterloo
Partnered with University of Waterloo, Canada
Prize sponsored by P. Terry’s and Paramount Theater
2019 has been declared by the United Nations as the International Year of the Periodic Table. This coincides with the 150th anniversary of Dmitry Mendeleev’s periodic table. To mark this significant moment in the field of chemistry, St. Andrew’s joins a select group of school across the world from over 26 countries, in collaborating on a new art mural that will be installed in the new science complex at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Check out the winning submission from the contest that will represent St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.
