Nile Academy Research Fair A Presentation to Get You Started Good News…! We’re having a Research Fair! Nile Academy Research Fair…what? It’s a competition, duh! It’s a chance to explore what you’ve always wanted to study or know. It’s a fun way to escape the boring classroom and learn independently. It’s a great way to prepare you for the future. So, what am I going to do? This is a mandatory, school-wide assignment. You will be given a grade of 5% from all four of your classes: DO A GOOD JOB! That’s a total of 20% of your total grades! You will need to choose a field that you would like to do a project in: mathematics, science, social science, or technology/computers. You will need to work independently or in pairs. The GOLDEN Four 1 3 Step 1: Step 3: Find a topic to research. Type out your report. 4 2 Step 2: Step 4: Do the research and get help. Prepare your display board. The Research Fair You will be judged by a panel of judges. You will need to prepare a 5 minute presentation. You will have to dressed in uniforms that day. You can call your parents to visit your public viewing. There will be tons of medals and awards to go around. There will fun, outdoor activities for half of the day. What you need to do right away!
