Science Fairs Under the 'Scope

NSF Awards: 1421112

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

Science Fairs can give students an opportunity to do an authentic investigation, where they ask questions and define problems, plan and carry out investigations, analyze and interpret data, and communicate their findings. As you know from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), conducting a science fair investigation can be a great way to enact the NGSS science and engineering practices. So our team was curious. What can we learn about teaching the NGSS practices through science fairs?

In this video, our 4-year National Science Foundation-funded study shares a few of our findings. Learn more on sciencefairstudy.edc.org.
