The Annual SciCore Science Fair of 2019

Science Fair

The SciCore Science Fair is one of the biggest highlights of the school year! Students filled the gym with various different projects on scientific fields, from Biology to Engineering. The students spent time explaining their projects to passerby while waiting for their judge and many received rave reviews and honorable mentions within their grade, with first and second place often being determined by only a few points of difference. You can find pictures of the science fair on our Facebook page @SciCoreAcademyHightstown. Great work everyone!

The SciCore Math Fair of 2019

Our annual SciCore math fair was a mind-expanding experience as always. Students from grades 1-12 were able to explore various mathematical laws, patterns, and equations that can be found in nature and in the abstract. Students were able to both hone their presentation skills as well as their understanding of mathematical concepts at the fair.

Our annual Mardis Gras Party is an excellent way for our students to have fun, enjoy food, and learn about a unique holiday and culture all at the same time!

SciCore Christmas Party With Santa Claus

Students were reeling in anticipation for today's SciCore Christmas Party, an event that captured the holiday spirit in the multipurpose school gym. Classes were light on schoolwork and homework due to the two week holiday break from classes and the students could hardly wait to celebrate its beginning at the party. Mrs. Poulos and volunteers comprised of staff and parents helped decorate and organize the gym to match the festivities. In the kitchen, the volunteers organized various dishes of food which included dessert. When the party began, Santa Claus made an appearance to hear Christmas wishes from children. After the food, the DJ, Jeff Costello, blasted music throughout the gym that inspired many to get up and dance while others continued to enjoy their dessert. Merriment continued for the rest of the school day, concluded by farewells from Dr. and Mrs. Poulos.

Mathematics Fair

November 20, 2015

The 2015 SciCore Mathematics Fair featured math presentations from all grade levels that showed a comprehensive understanding of the material well above many of their age peers. Parents, teachers, and students set up their projects on tables in the multipurpose gym area and prepared their presentations on various topics based on the theme of the history of mathematics. Judges then proceeded to carefully examine each of the projects and graded them based on the students' presentation knowledge of the material and the layout of their posters. At the end of the fair, winners of the fair for both the middle and high schools were announced. The students enjoyed each other's company and projects after they were graded and spent the rest of the night learning about math and its applications.
