What is Math & Science Night?


This event is a fun way to encourage scientific thinking and allow students to showcase their knowledge and interest in a wide range of math and science concepts.  

Students may create a display board that explains a math concept, a scientific topic, or the results of an experiment.  

Students may also bring in a model or other visual aid to demonstrate their math or science concept.  

During the event, students will talk about their project and answer questions from other participants.

The entire Ben-Hem community is invited to attend and view the projects.


Who can create a math/science project?

Any student in K-4th grade. You may have up to 2 students per project.  Each presenter will receive a certificate of participation.


What are the rules for each project?

• Adults can help gather materials, supervise any experiments, and help to build the display.

• Experiments cannot be performed during the Math & Science Night.  However, brief demonstrations

are permitted as long as they meet all of the remaining criteria of the event.

• Models, demonstrations, and other visual aids are permitted; however, they must fit with your display

board on one-half of a cafeteria table.

• No nuts of any kind can be used in your display.

• Please indicate on the form if you require an electrical plug. We will do our best to place you near

one; however, please bring any extension cords needed.

• Any and all visual aids, models and/or demonstrations must not involve liquid substances (though at-

home experiments may).

• No glass permitted.

• No living animals are permitted.

• No flammable substances are permitted.
