When middle school students conduct real scientific research to answer their own questions, they develop an enthusiasm for science and a sense of their own potential as problem-solvers. Getting younger students ready for a successful science fair experience also raises new questions and challenges for teachers.
“Intel ISEF Middle School Science Fair: A Guide for Teachers” offers a comprehensive curriculum and planning guide. It provides teachers with a detailed road map, outlining planning considerations and hands-on activities for the 30 weeks leading up to a fair. Downloadable files include the complete teaching guide, plus an accompanying set of transparencies.
