Beall Elementary School in Rockville, MD

Have you heard about the Beall PTA Science Expo? Snow date is Feb 3rd!!! It's going to be an AWESOME EXPLOSION of SCIENCE! We turn the Beall gym over to our budding Beall scientists for an evening of science fun: each student who chooses to do a project gets an assigned table space with plenty of room for a display board describing some bit of SCIENCE that kid has done at home, whether an experiment or a fascinating science phenomenon. You can expect crystals, volcanoes, projectiles, animals, chemistry, space and lots of other super cool stuff. Any Beall student who wants to participate can present a project of their choice at the Expo, and everyone is invited to come see the projects! Look for more info coming home in backpack mail and on the PTA listserv 12/15. Students can use our web form to sign up to present a project, and parents can volunteer here to help make the Expo happen. Documents, handouts, etc, related to the Expo are archived here.
