Curious Kids Overtaken with Science-Fair Fever

Calling all Isaac Newtons, Marie Curies and Charles Darwins! Hundreds of CSD students this week will convene to compete in Canyons District’s annual Science and Engineering Fair.

The event kicked off on Monday with the judging of more than 100 Elementary Division entries by fifth- and sixth-graders who sought to answer such questions as: Do your eyes trick your tastebuds, and which brands of gum blow the best bubbles? Secondary school entries will be judged later in the week.

At the conclusion of the fair, judges will choose several dozen projects to advance to the regional Salt Lake Valley Science and Engineering Fair in March, where students can win tens-of-thousands of dollars in college scholarships.
A select number of students may also be eligible to participate in the International Science and Engineering Fair. Canyons District has been represented every year at the International Fair since its creation in 2009.
Following the judging of Monday’s Elementary Division will be an open house to showcase the entries on Tuesday, Jan. 31 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Judging for the secondary division (seventh- through 12th-grades) is on Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 4 to 7 p.m., followed by an open house on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 4 to 5:30 p.m.  All the events will take place at Canyons’ Professional Development Center, 9361 S. 300 East in Sandy.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
