Editor’s Note: Science Fairs and Beyondby: Chris Ohana

Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

The rigid nature of most science fairs can cause panic among parents, students, and teachers alike over “doing it the right way.” In this issue, we present alternative views of a standard science fair. These views represent the process of science as more dynamic and varied than the traditional view of how science is done.

This short editorial from a December issue of Science and Children points out that the issue is dedicated to science fairs both traditional and non-traditional. The editor points out that science fairs are sometimes designed to highlight a school and the student products are an afterthought. This issue was chocked full of interesting alternatives to traditional ideas.
