All About Science: LFC 7th and 8th Grade Science Fair


This year our 7th and 8th grade students participated in our annual school-based science fair. Students begin this process as early as August. They work over the Thanksgiving Break and Winter Break to complete their work on their in-depth projects.


Our fair was judged by professionals in the science fields from Ochsner, Audubon Nature Center, University of New Orleans(UNO), and LSU(Louisiana State University. All of the judges were extremely impressed with our student’s in-depth research, creativity, innovativeness, and their hard work.

We would like to shout out our 7th and 8th grade students for all of their hard work during this school year! Throughout the process, in particular for the regional competition, all of our Eagles rose to the occasion, met all deadlines without any issue and completed all of the tasks that were given to them without complaint! Great job Eagles in showing tenacity, resilience, hard work and dedication to getting the job done. We are so proud of you all! We would also like to shout out our parents/guardians for being supportive and encouraging during this process! Also, we would like to shout out all of the teachers and other staff that have helped to mold our Eagles since they took flight on this campus. Thank you to everyone!
