    I loved the Science Fair Workshop, if only I had it 3 months ago, this is my first one and I got much resistnace from the teachers in participating, the kids are excited to do anything besides just get ready for state testing, so I’m hoping there will be some good ones and I’ve spent much class time on the actual projects, now comes the hard part of writing the conclusions after dat analysis and creating their displays, but your workshop inpired me greatly.

    Another way our school communicates to parents about science fairs is to have a general meeting to discuss the process. We show a video, show examples of completed projects, and give the parents a packet of materials to use to help their children complete the project.

    To get the community involved, we use a community person (i.e. engineer), science supervisors from around our state, and at least one parent(not from our school) to be judges. We try to have at least 6 judges. We interview each participant and give awards (medals, certificates, etc.) to each participant.

    I left the session today with lots of practical ideas to improve our school science fair.

    I also remembered some other great science fair websites to try, like (has lots of small labs to do in the classroom),, the TWINKIES project (who knew you could find out so much using a twinkie?),, etc. NSTA also has a listing of science fair websites.

    We invited local scientists – those who work in our water treatment plant, local engineers, marine scientists, a chef likes to sail… answer questions that our students had on their projects. It was held after school and was so successful that we invited them back for three afternoons.

    We also assigned a theme this year-“Making A Difference”-It gave the students a focus and made them aware of community issues that they might be able to address.

    I felt the the science fair workshop at NSTA was very infomative and a learned a lot. Thanks for a wonderful job.

    It was great. I have my parents as part of the committees to formulate the judging and set up and so on. This allows them to know in more detail, how a fair is run, and what may be needed to get the fair set up.

    Our school district includes an Army post and an Air Force base. There are many highly trained professionals from all backgrounds/specialties working at both places. Ask your parents if they know any of these professionals and invite them to into your classroom.

    I have never done a science fair before. This presentation had excellent resources for new teachers. I particularly liked how it was recognized that parents are a huge part of the puzzle for some students.

    Thanks for a great workshop! I am having my very first- and I thik the first for our school- fair and feel much more confident.

    Thanks for the great information on Science Fairs. What a great resource for new teachers especially or for that matter teachers who have been thrown to the wolves when creating a great science fair!

    I wanted to add that the Science World magazine is a good resource for teachers for science fair projects and guide to proper science fair testing terminology and such!

    I really enjoyed all of the NSTA conference, but I have to say that I enjoyed Lance’s and Bill Nye’s Sessions the most out of everything that I did.
