After receiving instruction in the scientific method and the strategies for completing a science project, Mt. Helix Academy’s 7th and 8th graders develop their own science fair project and submit it to the Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair. Over the past 17 years, all of our 7th and 8th graders completed a science project and every student who competed in the Science Fair’s Junior Division was awarded a prize by the Science Fair’s judges. Given the number of students in its Jr. High School Module, Mt. Helix Academy is among the most successful schools in the San Diego area in Science Fair competition.
