This article celebrates the stance of the traditional science fair, that for most young students was a requirement rather than an enjoyable experience. I think that it takes a community to change perspectives and to move forward to better outcomes. Science can be part of this change. If schools could use the expertise of not only teachers, students and families and manage to put together professionals and universities together, they would be able to solve everyday problems attached to those particular places. The intention of creating these spaces of creativity, culture and science is essential for young children, which might be inspired to follow a path of community involvement, and success in learning.
