After your child has completed their project, they can be sure that they’ve had a successful Science & Engineering Fair experience if they can honestly say they enjoyed the experience and feel confident and proud of what they did.
You can find science in just about everything around you! Scientists study questions they have about the world around them, while engineers use their knowledge of science to make improvements to things. So there are very few things that scientists don’t study and what engineers can’t try to design.
Effectively mentoring your child on their Science & Engineering Fair project can be more challenging than actually doing the project itself. Have the patience to help your child develop the skills to work through challenging times, while empowering them to stay in the driver’s seat.
Break the cycle… Be an innovative planner and foster innovation at your school’s Science & Engineering Fair! It’s a lot of work, but with big rewards. Innovative planning might involve experimenting with new and different ways of running your fair.
Looking at a Science & Engineering Fair project in small steps can help make such a big project seem a lot more manageable. The Make Science Fair Fun® experience involves these 6 easy-to-follow steps.
Innovation is all about new ideas, methods or products. Innovation is developed through the creative thinking process. At this stage in your child’s life, you can empower your child to innovate by encouraging them to dream big, be creative, and have fun. Even if they find out that their big ideas aren’t feasible, they can be proud of their creativity.
