  • observations/data

  • objective

  • systematic

  • linear

  • procedures

  • testable

  • asking question

Using ScienceFare.org

  • Basis for classroom activities

  • In-class reading assignments

  • Provide discussion area for experiments


Jam Band

  • Carolyn Tepolt

  • “Can pectin content, and thus gelling ability, be predicted on the basis of berry relatedness?”


The GreatEgg-stravaganza

  • Judit Pungor

  • “How do you make the perfect scrambled eggs?... Turns out, for every 10 people you ask, they offer 11 opinions... But what was the best way of doing it?”

“But inconclusive results are actually an important part of science (or so my adviser keeps reassuring me). Inconclusive results highlight areas of science that need further exploration. While the magic of scrambled eggs continues to evade me, I know at least that the magic does not lay only in what is added to the eggs.”


The Mystery of the Wet Potato

  • Kevin Miklasz

  • “Is it water or the starches in potatoes that cause them to get their gummy, sticky interior?”

  • “The result, unfortunately, did not fit nicely into either expected answer...In other words, it seems as though both water and starches contributes to the gumminess.”


Future directions

  • Develop 5-lesson after-school series

  • “The ScienceFare experiment” workshop

  • Ask the Scientist

  • Education section

  • and...
