Science Exhibition at Newton's Grove

Newton's Grove believes that inspiring students to become their personal best includes challenging them to go beyond what they believe their current capabilities are and providing them with the supports they need to succeed. 

Based on the principles of nurturing creative and inquisitive minds, Newton's Grove has continued with tradition of the annual Science Fair. The Science Fair involves students from our Primary, Junior, Intermediate and Senior divisions designing, conducting and analyzing various scientific principles. Students must complete all aspects of the Scientific Method and present this to their teacher and peers in in class presentations. From there, a subset of students are selected to participate in grade level competitions, where their knowledge of the scientific method and theory of choice is tested. 

We will be showcasing our phenomenal Science Fair! Stay tuned and join us on March 4th at our Open House to get a first hand look at our student products.
