• Sycamore Academy Science Showcase 2017

On Thursday February 16th, from 5:00pm to 6:30pm, Sycamore Academy held it's 8th annual Science Showcase.  
Wildomar Mayor Tim Walker has to do a double take after seeing Sycamore Academy Assistant Principal Jeff Morabito. Someone who looks remarkably similar to the author of W'Rap.
The school has more than 550 students, ranging from transitional kindergarten through 8th grade, and all of them participated in the fair.

The kinder and 1st grade classes do group projects, whereas the students from 2nd through 8th do individual projects. 

Hey, where's the Tapatío or Sriracha sauce?
The teachers lead them on how to use the scientific method and how to do the projects while following the state guidelines for the state science fairs. 

Though competition doesn't start until the students reach 5th grade, the 2nd graders follow the same guidelines. 
I know that dropping them usually makes them NOT work.
The school has had participants that have had their projects in the county science fair, which is typically a month after the local event. Some SASCA students have then gone on to a competition at Cal State San Marcos. 
I had to throw in a random shot of my brother taking a picture.
