The Science Posse is dedicated to helping students, parents and teachers create scientifically sound science fair projects. There are wonderful things to learn from doing a science fair project, both about the topic and about yourself.
Critical elements of a successful science fair project include:
A clear understanding of the role each team member (students, teachers and parents) has in the project. Although the detailed descriptions of these roles on the pages below are not set in stone, they have been suggested by scientists, teachers and students as being extremely valuable in the process of doing science fair projects.
Prepare for the Fair, a Video by Kevin Temmer Kevin Temmer recently graduated from the International Baccalaureate program at Land O' Lakes High School in Florida. As part of the community outreach in the IB program, Kevin created an original animated video to teach students about the science fair. Kevin's animation has been featured on several sites including NASA, the National Science Foundation Knowledge Network, National Geographic Kids, PBS Kids, George Lucas Foundation-Edutopia, and Intel's Inspired by Education site. Kevin was also recently profiled by NASA. You can read an interview with Kevin here.
