The Science Symposium is a science based event held at the VINS Nature Center that allows local students to connect with the community and apply science in a real way. In the months leading up to the event, participating classes find a local issue to investigate, design hands-on projects, and conduct research to solve this community problem. After their months of hard work, the students will present their findings to local constituents, stakeholders and peers at this culminating event.
Schools participating this year include Ottauquechee School, Quechee, VT, Canaan Elementary School, Canaan, NH, Richards School, Newport, NH, Berlin Elementary School, Berlin, VT, Haverhill Cooperative Middle School, Haverhill, NH, Newton School, Strafford, VT, and Weathersfield School, Weathersfield, VT. Over the course of the two-day event, we expect over 300 4th-8th graders plus their families at VINS to celebrate their months hard work and progress throughout this project.
The Science Symposium is a great program that will guide your students to become community advocates while honing their presentation, research, computer, and interpersonal skills. What’s more, your class will be able to enjoy a day out of the classroom, experiencing the hard work being done by local schools at the culminating Science Symposium event this May.
“At Ottauquechee School, our fourth graders are extremely fortunate to be engaged in a year-long project created and delivered by VINS educator Michelle Amato. During Ms. Michelle’s weekly visits, learners are exposed to best science education practices in a fun and engaging way while learning about the relevant topic of composting in our community.”
Contact Michelle Amato, Science Educator, to begin scheduling Science Symposium in your 4th-8th grade class for the next academic year!
