Sheldon, Iowa — The Middle School gym will be full of education on November 15th, when 56 projects will be displayed for the Sheldon Middle School Science Fair.
Jim Gude, the Middle School science teacher, told KIWA that his 8th grade students have been working on their science fair projects for six weeks. He says the students are completely in charge of their projects.
He tells students that he is only there to guide them through the projects. They don’t have to take his advice, though they may want to.
Gude tells us that he has picked judges from all sorts of different specialties, that way there shouldn’t be any bias on one subject.
Gude tells us the students will be judged on display, artwork, and creativity. Judging will take place from one o’clock until three o’clock in the afternoon of November 15th.
The middle school gym will then be opened to the public to walk through and see the projects from seven o’clock until eight o’clock that night. Gude tells us that this is the 27th Middle School Science Fair to take place in Sheldon.
The top three students will go on to the State Science Fair in Ames that will take place in March of 2023.
