STEAM Fair is coming to WBE AIA!
The Wells Branch Elementary STEAM Fair Night will be held Thursday, January 26, 2017. Here’s what you and your child need to know to be ready for this evening.
Students can choose any Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, or Math area of interest to conduct experiments/products/or displays. This is much more open-ended and students-interest based then in past years. They can also choose to complete a science experiment per the Austin Regional guidelines.
All students are encouraged to participate! Fourth and fifth grade students are REQUIRED to submit a project. They may choose to either submit it for judging or display it in the gallery. These projects must be either an experiment or an exhibit. Students will receive a classroom grade for this project. Please note that for all 4th and 5th grade projects, a written report must be included.
The STEAM Fair should be a fun experience for your child. Selection of a project should match their interests and abilities. A team of teachers will be hosting a STEAM Fair Research Night for Pre-K – 5th grade students and their families. This will be held on Thursday, January 5, 2017 from 5:30-6:30. During this event, teachers will be available to assist you with science fair guidelines and research. You will also have access to computers and the internet. During this time, teachers will also be available to walk you through the scientific process and show you examples of eye catching display boards.
Each child will receive a ribbon for displaying their projects. Winning projects (submitted for judging in the science category) will receive medals and be announced at the STEAM Fair night to qualify and compete in the Austin Regional Science Fair. Only students in grades 3rd-5th are eligible to compete in the Austin Regional Science Fair.
Please take the time to look through this information with your child. Please pick up either an exhibit packet or experiment packet of additional information from your teacher once your project is decided and approved. Thank you for supporting your child in this STEAM event! We look forward to seeing your child’s project. J

Garden Sales are Friday’s right after school by the bike racks.
10/28/16 The FM group really worked hard on Friday and did a great job of harvesting, packaging, marketing and selling what we had. A big THANK YOU to the other teachers who volunteered things for us to harvest. This week we sold $33 of produce. We should be able to start taking orders in a week or two to pre-fill.
10/21/16 The first Farmer’s Market was a great success!! The kids managed to organize, harvest, bag and transport the produce in just over 30 min. Then they got the cart organized and sold $37, plus recieved a donation of $10. Not bad for all this heat.
This program would not exist without the support of all of you!!! This year you can fill out the volunteer form and return it to the office or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The form can be found at this link: Garden Volunteer Application
If you would like to work with our students, don’t forget to fill out the district volunteer registration online form at https://hrsapp.roundrockisd.org/workspace/
