Science Fairs give students an opportunity to individually investigate a scientific problem.
Students complete individual or team projects in which they are required to formulate a question, research a topic, design an experiment, collect and analyze data, and form a conclusion based on their work.
These projects help students learn the scientific method by actually going through almost the same process that scientists use.
Students also learn how to sequence data into an attractive display and how to make a clear and effective oral presentation of their work.
Fairs and exhibitions give Judged on creative ability, scientific thought, thoroughness and clarity.
