Science Fairs Under the 'Scope

NSF Awards: 1421112

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

Science fairs are a rite of passage for many school-age children. Yet in spite of their wide implementation and long history, there are few empirical studies that have examined the relationship between student participation in these fairs and their learning and interest in science. Additionally, there have been no studies to understand the real cost of these programs relative to the student benefits. Our 4-year study will be the first step to understanding the implementation and effectiveness of middle school science fairs in the United States.
