Virtual Science Fair projects due today 5/15

Submit your virtual science fair project!   Science Fair is an online school-wide event that allows students to better understand the scientific process by researching a scientific question. All Enatai students are welcome to participate!

This year’s final deliverable can be a photo of a tri-fold display board or single panel poster, or a PDF poster that the student designs using PPT, Word, or any design tool of choice. All photos, PDFs, and completed Scientific Method Sheets need to be emailed to sciencefair@enataiptsa.org  Projects are due Friday, May 15th.  Photos and PDF posters will be displayed on our science fair web page

 Hello Academic Adventurers!

Although our travels have been put on hold, you can still participate in the Multicultural Travel Poster showcase!  Please take a photo or scan your poster and email it to multicultural@enataiptsa.org and your work will be shown on our Multicultural webpage at the Enatai PTSA website! Please send in your photo along with student name, grade, and teacher by May 22, 2020.  If your photo includes your student's image, we will consider this permission to post their image on our website. 

To earn Academic Adventure credit, create a travel poster to encourage people to visit a country that interests you. Multi-Cultural Poster instructions available here. 

Already turned in your poster to the office in March?  We will do our best to get the posters online as well.  More information about the Academic Adventure program final forms will be released next week.  Stay tuned!
