Agricultural Science Fairs: Are Students Truly Learning from This Activity?
Boleman, C. T.; Burrell, F., Jr.
Journal of Extension, v41 n3 Jun 2003
A pretest/posttest administered to 480 fourth-graders revealed an increase in correct responses for 9 of 10 questions following participation in an agricultural science fair. Significant increases were related to knowledge of how agriculture affects everyday life. A teacher survey (n=89) indicated that it was a positive learning experience but that specific curriculum should be designed to support it. (SK)
