Welcome to the TMS Science Fair Page
Science Fair is a journey for the students. During the journey they will experience thinking like a scientist, exploring questions they have about the world around them, and conduct an experiment based on the scientific method. During the journey students will use the tools and skills from Mathematics, Science, Language Arts, and Technology to help them navigate the path of the research paper, conducting the experiment, analyzing the data gathered, and drawing conclusion.
