Students explore the intersections between STEM and history in this interdisciplinary research project and fun simulation - an educator's dream! Students research famous Scientific Revolution figures and create actual "science fair" projects presenting their most influential experiments and discoveries using the Scientific Method.
Make it an annual event at your school and ask science teachers and administrators to judge and award the prizes - students and faculty alike love and look forward to this immersive experience! On the day of the Science Fair, students learn from each other as they explain and demonstrate their projects to their peers. The Scientific Revolution comes alive as students gain a deep kinesthetic and visual understanding of foundational experiments, which may otherwise seem like dry words on the textbook page.
This bundle includes:
- detailed project directions
- graphic organizers for students to write their notes from peer presentations
- judging sheets for teachers deciding on prizes
- award certificates for the Science Fair
- an overall student grading rubric.
- All documents are in editable format so you can adjust as needed!
