Science Fair Primer
by Ted Rowan This primer is written to help my students develop science fair projects. These ideas have been developed over twenty years of teaching science through research projects. Others may find any or all parts of these documents helpful. Feel free to copy, use, and expand upon any ideas here. As of 2000, Falmouth Public Schools (MA) (USA) has held nineteen (19) Kindergarten through Twelfth grade Science Fairs where the work of SEVERAL hundred students were on display. Many students and my colleagues have aided with the development of these ideas but the mistakes are all my own. If you find any errors or have ideas for addition, please E-mail Ted Rowan at Number of visits since August 1, 2000.

Parents may think that a science fair project is a oneweek thing, “science fairs definitely teach responsibility and discipline,” McDowell said.

Teach Way More than Just SCIENCE
By J. Bradford Sweeney
Science is a glorious thing. Anywhere that you look, science is looking right back at you. Whether it is the pictures beamed back from the surface of Mars, a prescription picked up at the pharmacy, or the simple deed of dropping a seed - these are all wonders of science.
Getting children interested in science at an early age is ultimately the first step a parent can take to their children participating in a science fair. Taking your children to a museum, going whale watching or simply walking on the beach with a bucket and a net, will get children exposed and in touch with the environment. Maureen Porter, a teacher of the gifted and talented at the George C. Baker Elementary School in Moorestown, NJ, explained the necessary ingredients for participation in a science fair. WHAT A CURIOUS PARENT CAN EXPECT Parents may think that a science fair project is a one-week thing, but it really is a time consuming, highly involved and detailed yearlong project

Dr. Bessie M. Rhodes, Principal, Timber Ridge Magnet School I would like to introduce you to the Timber Ridge Magnet School's first on-line science fair. First, however, is some information about the school. Timber Ridge Magnet School is part of the Evanston/Skokie, Illinois District 65 School System. It was established in 1995, a major component of the district's long range plan to achieve racial balance in three of its schools and relieve overcrowding in five other schools. The philosophy and principles of the school are based on responses to a survey from District 65 parents who indicated that they would like a second K-8 Magnet School in the district, highly structured, small class sizes with an emphasis on technology, science, communication and literature. The school has two classrooms per grade level, Kindergarten through eighth grades, with a maximum of twenty (20) students per classroom.The classes are heterogeneously grouped, and for the most part self-contained. Since the inception of the school, a major portion of the teacher training efforts has been devoted to technology, approximately eighty (80) hours per year. One of the primary goals of the school is the complete integration of technology into the instructional program. The on-line science fair is one example of the integration process.
Working with the Northwestern University Collaboratory, a group of TRMS teachers, known as the Committee of Nine, are trained in a variety of technology applications. This committee then works with their colleagues, teaching them to use these applications in constructing the science projects with their students. All projects fall under the umbrella theme:

Let's see what we can do for your staff! Next Friday the mighty groundhog will show us how close we are to Spring, and all teachers know that with Spring comes that most timeless of traditions - the science fair! Any of us that have been in education more than ten years remembers what this meant before the digital era: data kept in loose-leaf notebooks which were only as valuable as a given student's penmanship, display boards which were a measure of one's artistic ability using rulers and markers, and projects whose success were as much a test of organizational skills as scientific practice. With the advent of personal computers the rules have changed. Data storage and organization is a leveled playing field. Graphic and text display of data is a simple matter of digital formatting. Online research provides easy access to information and ideas for science experiments. And the focus can be squarely where it should be - on the scientific method. You can view the Surfaquarium's page on science fair resources at

The Steps of a science fair Project science Defined The Scientific Method Teacher s resources. Teaching the Scientific Method
Home Links Email The Steps of a Science Fair Project ... Judging Sheet Example Teacher's resources: Teaching the Scientific Method: Have your students apply the six steps of the scientific method to different questions. Example questions:
  • Do crickets prefer light or dark?
  • Will ice sink in water?
  • Which will a nail rust faster in? Salt water or tap water?
  • Do earthworms prefer their soil moist or dry?
Use simple questions which your students will be able to solve with your help. This is just preparation for the real thing - the Science Fair project, where they get to use this tool, the scientific method, to solve their own questions. Once your students have found some questions, have them form hypotheses. A hypothesis for the first example question would be "I think crickets prefer light to dark". If you make the hypothesis the opposite of what you expect, you will be more objective when collecting the results of your method. Figure out a method to prove your hypothesis. In the example above, the class might tape a cardbord wall with a doorhole for the cricket into the center of a small box. A piece of cardboard can be taped over one side of the box to create a dark 'room' for the cricket. Some mosquito netting can keep the cricket inside the box. Have the class place the box directly under a strong light for some hours. Your students should observe the result and write it down. Repeat the experiment with several crickets in the box at once. Have the students write down that result.

A science fair project is the ultimate answer to the often asked student question When a student completes a science fair project, year after year,
Why Complete a Science Fair Project? The following statement is excerpted, with thanks, from the Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair Web site. First A science fair project is the ultimate answer to the often asked student question: "Why do I need to learn this stuff, anyway?" Second A science fair project can be self-validating and exciting because it is not just practice. It involves real discovery of little known or even unknown information. Finally Science fair projects can pay off in cash and open the doors of academic opportunity. Well-done projects generally lead to competition and awards at Intel ISEF-affiliated regional fairs. First-place winners at regional fairs usually have the opportunity to compete for additional awards in the California State Science Fair. Top first-place winners from junior and senior divisions in many fairs are selected as sweepstakes winners and receive cash awards. Additionally, selected senior sweepstakes winners (the best of the best) go on to compete with other grand prize winners from throughout the world for substantial cash and scholarship prizes at the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Perhaps most importantly, however, graduating high school students with records of awards for original research or engineering at the regional fair and beyond, have a distinct advantage over other college applicants in being considered and accepted by the schools of their choice. This is because science fair honors rank high among the screening factors used by admissions officers at most top universities.

What is a Science Fair Project?
A science fair project is the ultimate answer to the often asked student question: "Why do I need to learn this stuff, anyway?"
A science fair project can be self-validating and exciting because it is not just practice, it involves real discovery of little known or even unknown information. It develops personal power of importance in students, where perhaps none or little existed before.
The project usually is based on questions or interests that the students already have, and allows them to develop the questions independently into formal, testable, solvable problems. When such studies are undertaken in earnest, the students often become driven by their projects. Learning the outcome and finding the answer can be an electrifyingly powerful moment of discovery. It proves to the student, and to others, that they were successful and that they did it on their own!
The result? An ordinary student is motivated to become an excellent student, and an excellent student to become a scholar. With all of the "self esteem" programs being sold to schools today, perhaps many educators have overlooked the sure-fire way to self-build student confidence, challenge potential, and instill the incredible feeling of independent achievement that the successful science fair project provides to the student.
Science fair projects can pay off in cash and can open doors of academic opportunity. Well-done projects usually lead to competition and awards at our Greater San Diego regional fair. First-place winners there usually have the opportunity to compete for additional awards in the

99. ASCB Newsletter, June 1998
He became interested in science in his sophomore year. His guiding principle is not to teach students what to think but rather how to think.
Joe Hall ASCB PROFILE Joseph C. Hall
Growing up in Harlem, Joe Hall's mother raised him and his brother and sister alone and on welfare. Hall joined a gang; his brother ultimately died of AIDS.
Hall isn't quite sure himself how he traveled from the hard life of the ghetto to one of only six African American National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigators. But he remembers that a distinct turning point was when one of his teachers at Charles E. Hughes High School in New York City, Janet Freeman, noticed that despite the absence of any studying, Hall was earning B's in his classes (Hall confirms that his high school years were devoted to "hanging out listening to music"). Growing up in Harlem, Joe Hall's mother raised him and his brother and sister alone and on welfare. Hall joined a gang; his brother ultimately died of AIDS.
"when I started college I was quite ignorant, because I had been told what to think, but in college I began to think critically."
Hall also spends a few days a month teaching at a local junior high school (after his daughter procured his promise "not to talk about sperm.")
Hall and his wife were raising their children in a small white town and they longed for more ethnic diversity.
