Teacher-Sponsored Presentations for Parents with Students Participating in Science Fairs

Update as of September 1, 2018
Sorry, we will NOT be offering Science Fair 101 seminars during the 2018 -’19 academic year.
The presentation includes an interactive walk-through of organizing the project board, a live demonstration of part of an experiment, and sharing of several ideas/resources for finding science project topics using house-hold items. This is an excellent opportunity to encourage parents to actively help their children while still keeping the project student-oriented.
If you have already had a Science Fair 101 presentation and would prefer a more hands-on approach for your parents, we now offer a workshop that emphasizes identifying controls and variables that can be part of a science fair project. The workshop runs approximately 45 minutes long and features a quick overview of several household items that can be used in “science magic” experiments, then engages parents as they manipulate variables in one sample project to explore cause-and-effect relationships using vocabulary that will help them enable their students.
