Shark Tank Presentation and Display

posted Jan 17, 2019, 10:51 AM by Mike Lazzara

Dear Parents and Students,

All Shark Tank projects are due Tuesday January 22nd.

Student will be required to make a poster that will be due on Friday January 25th.

The Poster should demonstrate your scientific findings and skills you used to develop your project. I recommend utilizing your status update reports on the poster. This will give the parents an opportunity to see the progress of your wonderful projects. 

On Sunday January 27th during open house, Student's Shark Tank Projects will be on display in the music room located on the second floor of the main building of Corpus Christi.

On Monday January 28th @ 1pm in the gym, Students will be presenting their Shark Tank projects to the rest of school. Classes participating are 5th,6th,7th,and 8th grades. Parents are more than welcome to join us for the presentations!

I would like to take a moment to aknowledge all the hard work the students have been putting into these projects and I have to say I am very proud of each and every one of you.

Thank you,
Mr. Lazzara

Shark Tank Project Update

posted Oct 19, 2018, 8:50 PM by Mike Lazzara

Students will utilize the next three lab sessions to begin the preliminary stages of their projects. 

Below is the timeline for the upcoming weeks

10/25/18- Status Project Update due. (Students should begin the preliminary stage of their projects week 1 blueprinting)

11/1/18- Status Project Update #2 due. ( Students should begin to make purchases necessary to for their project and begin to bring them in on their lab days).

11/8/18- Status Project Update #3 due. ( Students should begin to assemble and identify what specific materials they will need to be successful with their projects).

Following this schedule we will return to our regular labs starting the beginning of the second trimester. Students are EXPECTED to test and evaluate their projects throughout this time. As this is a crucial part of the project. This is the time when students will identify if their project is working to their expectations and correct all of their errors through trials.

I would like students to keep one science journal per group so that they can track any questions or ideas they would like to bring to my attention. 

I am so proud of the effort and excitement the students have put into their projects so far. And I am looking forward to see our students shine!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
