Students stretch their scientific know-how every year in Liberty’s Science Fair.
As quoted from the article, “The Value of a Science Fair Project, “Preparing a science fair project is an excellent example of what education experts call active learning or inquiry (also "hands-on" learning). It is a very effective instructional method; indeed, it is recommended as a cornerstone of successful science teaching.”
Judges from a variety of fields such as, medical, engineering, technology, and math volunteer to interview students and asked questions about the topic, the scientific process, and data collection, which gives judges insight into the scientific knowledge gained from the project, and allows students to explain their learning and discoveries, boosting their confidence.
Each project begins with a problem question that students aim to solve in their projects. Students provide their procedures and data, as well as their reasoning and evidence.
Schedule this year:
Wednesday, Jan. 22: Set-up day and public viewing Thursday, Jan. 23: Judges' interviews Friday, Jan. 24: Public viewing and awards assembly
