Being Scientists

For the past two years, I have organized our school science. We organized our fair as an extracurricular club where interested students could participate. Previously, we only had a handful of projects each year. Some were great, and others were not as good.

This year, I decided to make completing a science fair project a required portion of my class. We’ve been working on our projects since October. Today was turn in day.

Almost all of my students came in early today to set up their projects. And then they stayed with me – each other really – and excitedly dashed around the room looking at each other’s projects. They were asking questions, analyzing conclusions, and critiquing each other’s methods. It was so exciting! My students have become scientists. Their projects look amazing, and I am so proud of them!
