Ask the Science Posse
How can I help my students make their science fair projects the best they can be?
There are several ways we can connect with your students to help with science fair projects
The Science Posse can help your entire class understand the elements of a good science fair project, the role of student, teacher and parent, and the importance of the required paperwork, in person or through the Virtual Science Posse.
Fellows can consult with students in small groups or individually to help them refine their question, develop a testable hypothesis, design their investigation and analyze their data, in person or through the Virtual Science Posse. (It is important that students come to the consultation prepared with ideas of what they would like to investigate. This is not a time to brainstorm ideas!)
Fellows can also mentor individual students across the state throughout their entire science fair project through the Virtual Science Posse.
After they have worked with your students, Fellows will also return to critique/judge the final products.
Virtual Science Fair Visits and Consultations!
Amy DiRienzo and Alicia Martin visited Goins Elementary in Cheyenne, used Blackboard Collaborate/Elluminate to mentor all 48 fifth graders through their science fair projects, and then returned for their final celebration.
