"We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being." ~ Dr. Maria Montessori
The Lower Elementary students enjoyed learning about the scientific method to explore some of their many questions about the world. The children began the six-week process in early January in preparation for the presentation of their discoveries on February 8. The Science Expo not only allows the children to share their discoveries with others, but also to begin building their self-confidence for speaking with others of all ages. The format of our Science Expo was an open house. All families, friends, and relatives attended and shared in the enthusiasm of the scientists. Ribbons that distinguish one as being better than the other are not presented. It was exciting to see all presenters leave as confident and enthusiastic as they were when they arrived.
