Hi there- I am a first year middle school science teacher this year My principal would like to see us do some type of science fair this year and I along with one other teacher are planning it. I have no experience with science fairs, but am trying think outside the box of a typical 'science fair'. My kids have no had very positive experiences with science in the past and have been jaded by a lot of bookwork and worksheets as opposed to doing real science in the classroom. I try to run as much inquiry based learning as possible and would like to see our science fair model this. Does anyone have experience with Kids Inquiry Conferences? Or science fair success stories? I am not a parent, so any input from that perspective on what your children have had to do for science fairs would be great as well. My goal is to create a fun, meaningful science fair experience where kids are excited to share what they (not their parents!) have done.
