JHS Science and Engineering Fair
Science Fair is designed to be an independent project and can require a lot of time and effort for both students and their families. Science Fair is required for all Advanced Placement and Honors students in the Science Department.
With that said, I want to stress the importance of preparing students to think independently and critically. Getting students to think about data and data collection, using their inquiry skills to discover new findings. Young adults need to learn that it is okay to think outside the box, finding answers to interesting questions is encouraged so long as it is documented appropriately! I want to help my students think like the great scientists of our past, so that they too, can invent and showcase new discoveries!
Preparing our students for the future, helping to provided the skills required for innovative and technologically savvy jobs (STEM) One focus this year and in future years will be to help students look at data and statistics. We call this, Computational Thinking! Using data, numbers, graphical models and computer simulation to bring data and findings to life. Making science real and showcasing results to the world.
