Problem solvers, critical thinkers, future scientists gather at SIFA science fair

 By Pacific Island Times News Staff

The hallways and classrooms at SIFA Learning Academy Charter School formed the nucleus of creativity and scientific curiosities during the Schoolwide Science Fair that drew more than 400 participants last week.


Equipped with hypotheses and experiments, the participating students during the four-day fair presented a wide array of projects such as homemade volcanoes erupting with chemical reactions.


“Students showcased their ingenuity and critical thinking skills as they tackled real-world problems and proposed creative solutions,” states SIFA’s press release.


One project that stood out consisted of intricate models of barriers for combatting sea waves. The project explored the effectiveness of different kinds of materials used as a barrier system.


Another project focused on developing a low-cost water filtration system using readily available materials, aiming to address clean water scarcity in underserved communities.

Located in Barrigada, SIFA is a charter school that specializes in science, technology, engineering and math or STEM. It currently has 421 students.

School administrators said the recently concluded science fair was “a testament to the school's commitment to fostering a culture of scientific inquiry and creativity among its students.”

"Students from all grade levels, including budding biologists and aspiring physicists, enthusiastically presented their projects to judges and classmates, showcasing a diverse array of topics and experiments,” SIFA’s press release said.

Students and visitors had the opportunity to engage with interactive exhibits, conduct hands-on experiments, and learn from their peers' innovative projects.

“The success of the science fair highlights SIFA Learning Academy's commitment to providing a holistic education that nurtures students' intellectual curiosity and fosters a lifelong love of learning,” SIFA said.

“By encouraging active participation in events like the schoolwide science fair, SIFA empowers students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers, ready to tackle the challenges of the future," it added.
