The Girls’ Division High School will move their appreciation of Hashem’s creation to the Science Lab for their 1st Science Fair. On Tuesday December 25, the Linden Lane cafeteria will be filled with the results of approximately 70 long-term science projects presented by students in grades 9-11.

In the words of Mrs. Shira Kasser, Chair of the YGW Science Department, “The personal quest for answers is the foundation of the science fair, and of all science. When an individual views the world as a place about which there are always questions to ask, he or she is a more fulfilled, thinking individual. The goal of asking questions (as opposed to just having information spoon-fed to you) is that when you develop a question, you make a hole inside yourself into which the information can flow. YOU want the answer because it is YOUR personal question. The science fair is a way of making this goal, the goal of inquiry-based learning, a reality. Inquiry, and inquiry-based learning, is at the heart of all learning and one of the factors that makes science unique from other bodies of study.”

Students are limited to a $30 budget and will be judged by a panel of experts in the fields of science and math based on multiple criteria of research, analysis, and presentation.

Members of the community are invited to attend the fair from 1:30-4:30pm to participate in the questions and discoveries of our students. For further information contact Mrs. Shira Kasser - skasser@yeshiva.edu .
