Science Fair: Students in grades 3-5 participate in the annual St. Anthony Park Science Fair. Investigations are designed by students as they carry out a scientific investigation on a particular area of interest. Students benefit from the individual feedback given by evaluators and experiencing a self directed investigation from start to finish.
Date TBD March-April
Environmental Experiences: Students are able to apply science in the field as they participate in a number of outdoor science learning experiences. Gr. 3-5 Visit Valley Branch Environmental Learning Center in Afton for one-day experiences.
Community Connections: The location of St. Anthony Park enables students to have unique experiences through ties to the University of Minnesota. Students take annual trips to the Physics Circus, Bell Museum, Gibbs Farm, Chemistry programs and the Raptor Center.
