Boulder Experiments Scrapook. A Description of How the Student and Professional Staff of the S.A.D.M.E.S.S. Project Planned and Put On a Community Environmental Fair.
Social Science Education Consortium, Inc., Boulder, CO.
This Scrapbook is a description of how eight 12th grade students, with help from the professional staff of the Social Science Education Consortium, planned and put on a community environmental fair in Boulder, Colorado. The Boulder Experiments Fair grew out of an environmental education project conducted by SSEC and funded by the Office of Education. The name of the entire project was the Student-Assisted Development of Materials for Environmental Social Studies (SADMESS). Divided into two groups, SADMESS worked on two major projects during their 16 months at the Consortium--a book, "Sunshine Unfolding" (SO 006 207), and the Boulder Experiments Fair. This book describes the fair from the very early brainstorming sessions to the final post-fair feedback. Some of the chapters are: Getting Organized; Getting the People; Getting Permission; Getting the Work Done; Getting it all Together; and Getting Feedback. The final report of the SADMESS project is described in SO 006 208. (OPH)
