Carthay School Science Fair and Environmental Exposition 2014

Carthay has done many science fairs in the past, but with the school becoming an environmental studies magnet, the new tradition is an annual Science Fair and Environmental Expo! And our first was a huge success.

The Science Fair was held on May 22nd, 2015 in the auditorium, with science projects presented by every class, as well as some individual projects. All of the projects were wonderful, but the judges did have to make a decision.

And the winners are...

  • 1st Place: Ms. O'Brien's 3rd Grade Class, "Shower vs. Tub Experiment: Which Saves More Water?
  • 2nd Place: Ms. Eisenstein's 2nd Grade Class, "Lifecycle of a Frog."
  • 3rd Place: Ms. Arutyunyan's 1st Grade Class, "Hanging by a Thread;" and Ms. Yanikian-Sutton's 4th Grade Class, "How do We Impact the Environment?"

Honorable Mentions:

  • Mr. Vinluan's Pre-K Class, "Sea Animals"
  • Ms. Ruiz's Kindergarten Class, "What can Seeds Grow in?"

Congratulations again to all our winners and all our participants!

Outside on the yard was the Environmental Exposition! Exhibitors included Heal the Bay (sponsor of the EEI law), the Ballona Wetlands Land Trust, the Natural History Museum with BioSCAN insects from Carthay's Garden, STAR Education's Garden Science, the Theodore Payne Society, Grades of Green, California Fuel Cell Partnership with a Fuel Cell-powered SUV, and many more!

See the Flyer for more details.

Special thanks to Jonathan Armstrong for all of his hard work organizing the Fair & Expo! Thanks as well to all of the teachers, staff, parents, and exhibitors who contributed to the event's success.
