With the hard work of the parents and teachers we more than doubled the number of students participating. In addition, we had a great turn out for the actual science fair which included any student from the school, parents, siblings, and more. It was a “full house”.
This year I will be attending science fairs in many Midwest states.
An interesting approach to getting students interested in science…..money. By telling stories of people who have patents including the founder of Alcoa. There are a lot of rich people who have used science get them where they are today.
Just finished performing for the Concept Science and Engineering Fair where there were students from 30 schools across 5 states (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Missouri) at Cleveland State University. This is open to any public school student as a way to promote science, math and engineering.
Feel free to contact me for information about the 2012 fair.
Today, I performed hands on Science with students from Providence St. Mel From the moment I stepped in to the building and saw the students going from class to class and reading the history of the school….I knew it was special. Go directly to their website and learn more.
