A science project is an opportunity for the student to “cross train” academically: to develop critical thinking, project management, and presentation skills.
When the student demonstrates the scientific method, uses repeated tests with a basic understanding of statistical analysis,
is diligent in reading and learning background information, and can discuss the concepts of science suggested by the student’s experiments,
the student is well on the way to having an award-winning science fair project. Very few curriculum opportunities provide such a cross-disciplinary
learning experience as doing a science fair project. THANK YOU for giving your students this rewarding educational experience!
