Saluda Elementary students recently staged a Science Fair at the school, using kits provided by Duke Energy as part of a grant received by fifth grade teacher Ginger Rackley.
The Duke Energy Science Night Kit received by Rackley provided students with kids for STEM-based learning (STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
During the evening, fifth grade students ran the various stations, with each fifth grader also required to complete a science fair project using the scientific method.
All other classes worked together to complete a science display as well. The second grade class even had the quails that hatched in their class recently on hand for parents and students to see.
Science night was a community event as parents, students, siblings, faculty, staff and community members viewed the science projects/displays and participated in the various STEM-based stations.
