How To Implement the Science Fair Self-Help Development Program in Schools. Sandia Report.
Menicucci, David F.
Often the burden of promoting science and engineering fairs falls upon science teachers who have to add the organizational activities for the fair to their normal teaching load. This manual is intended to assist in the science fair process by providing information about how to create a team of volunteers to manage the organizational activities. This manual is unique in that it describes how a school can develop internal support for its science fair based on parent and community involvement. Information on the roles and tasks of the Science Fair Volunteer Support Committee is presented. The appendices contains extensive materials for organizing science fairs, judging fairs, and mentoring students. Handout materials for workshops for parents, students, and teachers are provided. (PR)
