A Revamped Science Expo
Barth, Lorna
Science and Children, v45 n4 p36-39 Dec 2007
By changing the venue from festival to a required academic exposition, the traditional science fair was transformed into a "Science Expo" wherein students were guided away from cookbook experiments toward developing a question about their environment into a testable and measurable experiment. The revamped "Science Expo" became a night for students to show each other and the community what they've learned about science inquiry, processes, and habits of mind. (Contains 2 figures and 2 resources.)
