State 2017 - 2018 Science Fair

Hello my  name is Saysia. I went to the state science fair on January 15, Martin Luther Jr. King Day 2018. This photo show the kids that went to the state science fair from Theodore Jamerson Elementary School.  I'm going to tell you how it was at the state science fair. Well, at the state science fair there were a lot of kids.  There was less participants than last year. There were about a hundred projects.  My project was a  pump powered lava lamp. When I was inside it was awfully loud but I think most kids were just talking to their friends then explaining their projects.  It took a while for the judges to make sure they knew who had a place in the state science fair and to make sure they judged everyone. I wanted to talk to my friends but they were in a different categorize then me.  They were also far away and we couldn't stand. up unless the judges were still judging. It took a while. We were eating the snacks that Mr. Anderson gave us. 
In closing, I encourage more kids to come next year because it was fun. You can talk to your friends. You can make new friends, and I learned a lot. 

Congratulations to the Theodore Jamerson students for placing in the 35th annual North Dakota Native American State Science and Engineering Fair (NASSEF)

The 32nd annual North Dakota Native American State Science and Engineering Fair was held on January, 19, 2015 in the Ramada Bismarck Hotel, Bismarck, N.D.

Participating in the following grades categories TJES sponsored one (grade 7) three (grade 4) and  two students that participated in the grade 3-4 category.   Madison in grade 7th grade took first place in his category for for his project Hydrophobic Spray.  In the 3-4 grades competition Kylalynn took 2nd place for her project DNA.

Kaylalynn noted:

"I'm glad I took 2nd place because I didn't want to take third place. It took a long time before the judges came out. It was fun to see others people's projects and they were cool. My favorite project was the lava lamp. I saw kids from different schools. The science fair was fun. The science fair was cool because you got to see who wins."
