A Revamped Science Expo

by: Lorna Barth

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.
