1 Part Three of Fair in a Box: Competitive Fairs Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair

2 What about a research fair with experiments? DIY or teacher-led As you will see, the website Science Buddies provides first-rate fair-building resources. It presents options in a format assuming considerable teacher participation. But students can also operate quite independently using the Archimedes Initiative and Science Buddies. If they choose, they can even find mentors in youth organizations, through their parents, or with the help of Ying TRSEF. As you continue, keep that in mind!

3 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair The Archimedes Initiative This treasure includes hundreds of video clips of fifty students talking frankly about their own science fair experiences!

4 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Students simply click on a video to be carried into a peer’s real-world science fair experience. The Archimedes Initiative

6 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair The Archimedes Initiative Best practice: Give students the URL … PLUS at least 15 min. uninterrupted web access. Repeat frequently. Let them loose … and let them fly!

7 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Science Buddies The ultimate online Science Fair Super Store for fair sponsors, parents and students

8 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Science Buddies Review the Junior and Senior Division “Science Buddies Presentations” … PowerPoint shows downloadable from the Teachers page. SCROLL

9 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Science Buddies This prepares you to run a competitive local science fair. Your students will be eligible at the Ying TRSEF for middle school Broadcom Masters and for the weeklong ISEF for high school students – the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

11 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Well, we’ve thought a lot about launching our science fair and made some decisions. We’ve reviewed what’s available at The Archimedes Initiative and at Science Buddies. NOW WHAT? © Dustin Angell 2010

12 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair The Student Piece of the Puzzle Expose students to the thought that young people can try on “being a scientist” or “being an engineer” with science fair experience. Use the Archimedes Initiative to plant the seed … and give students time to explore and to think. © Dustin Angell 2009

13 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Science Buddies © Dustin Angell 2010 THEN, suggest Science Buddies as a tool middle and high school students all over the country use. Check out some careers!

14 Dr. Nelson Ying Tri Region Science & Engineering Fair Science Buddies Frontload your fair. Recruit every 4-H member and Scout around. Pitch the fair to Envirothon, Project Lead the Way, Science Olympiad, FIRST Robotics … any STEM-related course or club. © Glenn Hughes 2010
