    Woodruff Elementary STEM Fair will be Friday, March 30, 2018. Judging and evening viewing will be from 6:00-8:00 pm.

Our goal in conducting the Woodruff STEM Fair is to engage kids and families in the joy of science and engineering, as well as develop an understanding of the scientific method and engineering process. We will be accepting projects that are completed as individuals, families, friends, or even classes.

To judge the projects, we will be using a school created rubric that looks at the steps of the scientific method or engineering process, creativity, and organization. There will be students from either the high school or the university to judge the projects. If you have any questions please refer to the STEM Fair packet or contact this year's STEM Fair's representative:

Coffee & Cocoa with the Principal:
This year join Mr. Markworth every 3rd Wednesday from 8:00-8:30 to discuss school issues and have a cup of coffee and/or hot cocoa.
