Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Feb. 20 (Deadline Jan. 20), Auburn: Homeschool Science Fair

Calling all young scientists! 
We are hosting a homeschool science fair open to anyone homeschooling in grades K-8. 

Students would complete a science experiment of their choice at home, and then present their results on a table display for others. We will have volunteer judges to give feedback, but there won't be formal awards given other than for participation. This is not associated with the older kids' science fair where the winners move on to compete at higher levels- this is just a separate opportunity for younger kids to learn and use The Scientific Method, present their work, and practice public speaking on a small scale by explaining their project to other adults and kids.

Here are details:
Date: Friday, Feb 20, 6-8pm
The deadline to sign up is Jan 20.
For more information or to RSVP, please contact Rebecca Miller at rebeccalmiller@gmail.com .  

Entry Fee: $10 per student, $5 for additional siblings, $20 cap per family (fee goes to pay for facility rental)

Grades: K-8
Place: Frank Brown Recreation Building, Auburn, AL

This website gives lots of science fair ideas. The project doesn't have to be something innovative or new.  http://www.sciencebuddies.org/

This link is a great resource for how to do a science fair project, and Cora Connelly has also agreed to teach at least one class about how to do projects if there are enough interested people. 

This is open to everyone who would like to come look, not just those participating. 

This event is sponsored by Everest Academy but open to all homeschoolers.  Please review the Everest Academy Participation Policy before attending any of our events.
