100+ Students Take Part in Roxbury’s K-6 Science & Engineering Fair

Landing \ Roxbury News

More than 100 students in grades K-6 participated last Saturday in Roxbury’s annual Science and Engineering Fair at Eisenhower Middle School.

Each of the K-6 elementary schools was represented at the fair along with a few participants from Morris County Educare. Experiments encompassed every branch of science including many innovations in technology.

The science team, administration, staff, and families were able to speak to our up and coming scientists from each school. Students were excited to share their results with the Roxbury community.

“Our students are very innovative and clearly think out of the box. One experiment, in particular, was a fully functioning hand made of cardboard, string, and cut up straws. Imagine taking that design to a 3-D printer, the possibilities are endless,” shared Denise Glenn, Roxbury Science Supervisor for Grades 6-12.

District students were excited to see their teachers and principals at the fair. Many visited their students to show support and to see the projects they created at home. Students were encouraged to bring their project boards to school on Monday to share with the rest of the school community. Teachers continuously supported and encouraged their students to participate in the fair.

Chuck Seipp, Roxbury Schools Assistant Superintendent commented, “I was most impressed by the hard work of our students as they investigated the scientific principles taught in class and prepared a presentation that demonstrated their inquiry. The students were knowledgeable about their projects, proud of their work and confident in their presentations. I am grateful for their teachers and parents who cultivate a love of learning and am so very proud of how well organized the event was to showcase and celebrate our students’ efforts.”

Another highlight of the fair this year was having the EMS STEM Lab led by Phil Moskowitz, the STEM teacher at the school and ROXBOTIX Jr. advisor. Students and parents alike explored the opportunities our seventh and eighth graders have available to them in the EMS STEM Lab.

Moskowitz was joined by members of the ROXBOTIX Jr. and ROXBOTIX team from Roxbury High School. Both teams are part of the comprehensive robotics program offered at EMS and RHS. These programs take many students from the lower grades and prepare them for careers and college programs in the future.

Glenn went on to say, “We currently have several students attending some of the top engineering colleges and universities in the nation.”

“The Roxbury Science curriculum in grades K-12 encourages our students to ask questions, make predictions, offer up explanations, and explore the world we live in. This is particularly true of younger students where curiosity is endless and natural. Science happens and occurs around us every day and the fair provided for our students to explore and connect with their world,” explained Glenn.

Student ambassadors from the RHS Key Club and mini-THON were on hand as well to assist with registration and to help wherever needed. A very special appearance by Roxbury’s very own mascot, the “Gael” was the highlight for many. He led the parade and appeared in many photos while listening to students present their projects. We are hoping he will make his own experiment for next year.

Members of the mini-THON also sold snacks and water at the fair to raise money to help support the fight against pediatric cancer. The student ambassadors went around during the event collecting donations and explaining what THON is to increase awareness.

Besides walking along the rows of student exhibits, participants and their families were also treated to special exhibits and information tables from the Roxbury Community School, the L/R Tech Club, Kujenga Robotics and Coding, Mad Science, Siemens, and the Boy Scouts Summer STEM Institute.

Preparation is already under way for another great fair next year. Glenn shared, “You don’t need a degree in science to be a scientist. You only need the desire to learn and explore, clearly, our students in Roxbury have the passion and desire. We are committed to developing scientifically literate citizens to make informed decisions about their future.”

“Preparation for a more scientifically and technologically complex world requires the best possible education. In a rapidly changing, increasingly technological world, all students need to understand science and technology. Building a strong foundation in science, technology, art, engineering, and mathematics places our children on the road to success in school and beyond. Using opportunities to explore science at home and in school are ways to develop lifelong skills. Remember, science isn’t just a subject, it’s a way of exploring the world.”
