Science Fair Central presents dozens of resources for STEAM and Science Fairs! The Maker Corner features lesson plans for teachers, family activities and planning tools, and guides for students creating presentations.
Student Resources: Science fairs and STEAM events offer students an opportunity to practice investigation and engineering design. But how are scientific projects different than engineering projects? Science Fair Central features tons of project ideas, project steps, and presentation tips for students becoming involved in a STEAM/Science Fair! If you like asking questions and exploring solutions, check out the scientific project resources. If you like solving problems and proposing solutions, check out the engineering project resources.
Teacher Resources: The Maker Corner provides hands-on, standards-aligned STEAM lessons and accompanying materials lists for exciting, creative new ways to learn. The maker spirit is all about “learning-through-doing”. Infuse this spirit into your secondary classrooms with these standards-aligned, hands-on activities designed to encourage exploration and spark curiosity with your students.
Family Resources: Science fairs and STEAM events present a learning opportunity for the entire family, including younger siblings who can watch, absorb, and come up with hypotheses and ideas of their own. With an emphasis on hands-on investigations, field work, and participating in STEAM just as real scientists and engineers would, makes these events more relevant and creative than ever. The Parent Tip Sheet helps in advance planning to figure out how your student can time manage school work and extracurricular activities.
