Students from standards four to six were divided into groups and tasked with creating an experiment or science based project. It was evident that all the groups were well versed in their material, as they presented projects varying from mechanics to chemical compounds. The Science Fair also served as a form of grading the students on the material they have covered throughout the school year without requiring a standardized test.

Everyone that attended the event enjoyed the array of projects and even learned some new things in the intriguing field of science. IBES extends many thanks to everyone who attended the event, and congratulates its students on an excellent job.
