Consultations, Mentoring and Judging|Science Posse Science Fair

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.

Science Fair Cyber Mentoring Review!

"THANK YOU for this!! Amy and Alicia were tremendous and helped me and my students SOOO MUCH! I would be so grateful for future help - though I TOO will be so much better at this in years ahead. I learned and received great direction and materials to help my teaching too - which I think is also a great objective of the Science Posse!" Pam Frazier, Goins Elementary
