3 Who we are – NC Science Fair Foundation (NCSFF)
IntroductionsWho we are – NC Science Fair Foundation (NCSFF)Organizing body of the NC Science and Engineering Fair (NCSEF)501c3 Non-Profit OrganizationStaffed only by volunteers and in-kind servicesThe state affiliate of the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF)Sponsor of student competitions and awardsProvider of teacher professional developmentWebsitereview bullets – go to website – we will go back to website throughout presentation so this is just a brief intro.

4 Introductions, cont. Sponsored by Biogen Idec Foundation Our host
The Biogen Idec Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives and contribute to the vitality of the communities in which we operate. The Foundation puts special emphasis on innovative ways to promote science literacy and encourage young people to consider science careers. The Foundation focuses on STEM education initiatives and is committed to sparking a passion for science and discovery, supporting innovative initiatives, and strengthening efforts to make science accessible to diverse populations.Our hostParticipants – tell us about youNameSchoolGrade levelWhat do you want to learn about today?Who is here and also something about the people who are not here. Roles.

5 Desired OutcomesGuiding Student Research p 57By the end of this session, participants will have a(n)Understanding of the research processUnderstanding of effective strategies and processes to engage students in STEM related researchUnderstanding of the process required to participate in the NC Science and Engineering Fair including forms and ISEF rules for the Regional and State fairsUnderstanding of the why and how ensuring adherence to safety and research standardsUnderstanding of the NCSEF website resources for students, teachers, parents and community members

6 Consensogram Questions
Please go the charts and use one of your dots to respond to each question or statementPlace your dot on a horizontal linePut these statements on the Consensogram Charts – pass out 4 dots/participantKnowledge of conducting a research projectExperience level with guiding students in a research projectComfort level with guiding students in a research projectKnowledge of science competitions and their process

7 What do you think of when you think of a Science Fair?
Image on right is Morgan Neely – I chose him because so many of the judges commented on how persistent he was in working on this problem. He got second place in NC and we sent him to ISWEEEP in Houston where he won a Bronze Award in Senior EnvironmentalThe Impact of Dilution of the Ocean on the Rate at Which Sea Ice Forms Asheboro High School, Asheboro, NC Bronze Award in Senior Environmental

8 Today’s students investigate NEW PROBLEMS and New Solutions
Students take on real problems

9 Why should students participate in an independent research project?
Experience the excitement of inquiry-based scienceTeaches a student how scientists approach a problem and seek answersTeaches lifelong learning skills, organization, and time managementAllows personal development as students become “experts” in their field of investigationAsk them to discuss with partners as to how this would align to Common Core and then share ideasEncourages students to pursue their natural curiosity and questions that they are interested in answering!Helps you to comply with the Next Generation Science StandardsVideo “Science Fair: A journey”

10 Why should teachers have this as part of their curriculum?
Allows students to INTEGRATE SCIENCE ACROSS CURRICULA and provides skills to studentsReading & writing in content areasMath analysis of data, graphing, chartsComputer skills in presentation, graphs, textInterpretation of scientific dataIncrease science literacy, student interest in science, and motivation to pursue scientific careersLearn real world skillsNew K-12 Next Generation Science Standards states that science education should be built around “Scientific and Engineering Practices”New K-12 Next Generation Science Standards states that science education should be built around “Scientific and Engineering Practices”Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)Developing and using modelsPlanning and carrying out investigationsAnalyzing and interpreting dataUsing mathematics and computational thinkingConstructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering)Engaging in argument from evidenceObtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

11 Types of projects: Scientific Thought vs Engineering Goals
Guiding Student Research p 67Science – any system of knowledge that is concerned with the physical world and its phenomena and that entails unbiased observations and systematic experimentation.In general, a science involves a pursuit of knowledge covering general truths or the operations of fundamental laws.Engineering – the application of science to the optimum conversion of the resources of nature to the uses of humankind.…creative application of “scientific principles to design or develop structures, machines, apparatus, or manufacturing processes, or works utilizing them singly or in combination; or to construct or operate the same with full cognizance of their design; or to forecast their behavior under specific operating conditions; all as respects an intended function, economics of operation and safety to life and property.”Give an example of each type of project from past winners.Engineering – thinking about problems, creating solutions, testing. Example of student this past year that developed a mailbox signal for his grandmother to know that mail was delivered b/c she couldn’t walk her long drive and couldn’t see the mailbox from her houseRemember that ‘real world problems’ is the students’ lives, not ours and therefore their ideas might not be what we are thinking. They may surprise you. If they get to do what they are interested in, they are more excited.Revisions of a research plan – yes, this is part of the process. Just make sure you make note and adjustmentsDefinitions provided by Encyclopedia Britannica

12 How is Research Done? The Inquiry Cycle
#3 Experimental Design#4 Test & Discover#2 Develop Testable Question#5 Student Analysis & Dissemination#1 StudentCuriosity & Interest

13 Engineering Design Cycle
Safety issues with these projects – build things with power tools, need Risk assessment Form 3 or state who is using the tools (mom/dad used the tool or helped with the tool)Evaluation – think about what is not working, why and adjust

14 Comparison of the Methods*
The Scientific MethodThe Engineering ProcessState your questionDefine a needDo background researchFormulate your hypothesis, identify variablesEstablish design criteriaDesign experiment, establish procedurePrepare preliminary designsTest your hypothesis by doing an experimentBuild and test a prototypeAnalyze your results & draw conclusionsTest & redesign as necessaryPresent resultsFor engineering you are going to test and then make changes, retest, etc.Scientific method has this too, ideally you test and adjust experiment based on results and then repeatNeed to share results, share ideas or what was the point*Sciencebuddies.org

15 The Process for Teachers
Guiding Student Research Ch 4; p 68-72Set a Time LinePlan time for each portion of the researchSample timeline on ScienceBuddiesSet up schedule for review of research plans prior to experimentationDevelop time line for designing experiment and methods, experimentation, and analysis.Reserve time for putting together paper or project boardLook at schedule for school and higher level competitionsThink backwards: State Fair is the end of March, Regional Fairs are late January/February (Region 7 is in December)Teachers – first thing you need to decide is deadlines- First week of school talk to students about doing a RESEARCH project (not science fair)Think about how long/when you want them to come up with a topic – encourage them to think about what they are interested in and research some of itSet up a timeline for different parts of the process – science buddies has a timeline guide and rubric for grading as they go alongThe key is walking them through the process and getting them to think about each step, importanceRecruit people to help you review projects (parents)Science buddies has a sample letter to send to parents about what is going to happenIdentify help for students that will need more supportStudentJournaling: Log of project, extremely important. If competition, they need it with display. Something that is used in everyday research. Use bound notebook, composition is good but spiral is ok if they number every page. If they mess up can cross outEverything of the process goes into the notebookEncourage writing a paper even if doing a presentation b/c it helps them pull everything together. Also the sections will be parts of the poster. Some competitions require a paper

16 Transferring Student Work to Graded Assessment
Guiding Student Research p 77 and 85-89Each portion is assessed separately, not looking at the final complete project for the next EinsteinAs we will model today, each portion is reviewed for how well students follow the science and engineering processTeachers can provide feedback throughout the process and encourage student’s critical and creative thinkingRubrics for grading each portion can be found in sciencebuddies.org

17 The Process for Teachers
Guiding Student Research Ch 4; p 68-72Set a Time LineGet Parental SupportEducate parents concerning student’s projectsNOT parent’s projects!Provide information as to scientific investigationNOT cookbook labStress support roles of parentsRequest volunteers for mentoring and science competitionsGuide students through the processHave students present work – Science and Engineering FairTeachers – first thing you need to decide is deadlines- First week of school talk to students about doing a RESEARCH project (not science fair)Think about how long/when you want them to come up with a topic – encourage them to think about what they are interested in and research some of itSet up a timeline for different parts of the process – science buddies has a timeline guide and rubric for grading as they go alongThe key is walking them through the process and getting them to think about each step, importanceRecruit people to help you review projects (parents)Science buddies has a sample letter to send to parents about what is going to happenIdentify help for students that will need more supportWhat have you found to be most effective for recruiting?

18 The Process for Students
Guiding Student Research Ch 4; p 68-72Think about what interests them, their own real world problemsStart Journal on ResearchTopic SelectionBackground ResearchDevelop QuestionsDevelop a Research PlanExperimentWriteDisplayPresent ResearchStudentJournaling: Log of project, extremely important. If competition, they need it with display. Something that is used in everyday research. Use bound notebook, composition is good but spiral is ok if they number every page. If they mess up can cross outEverything of the process goes into the notebookEncourage writing a paper even if doing a presentation b/c it helps them pull everything together. Also the sections will be parts of the poster. Some competitions require a paper

19 Developing the Project
This is when a lot of the thinking comes into play

20 Resources for getting started
Visit the NC Science and Engineering Fair Web SiteUse online guidesIntel ISEF Science Project PlannerScience Buddies (Project Ideas, Project Guide, “Ask an Expert”, and Resources)Helpful resources

21 Getting Students onboard
Guiding Student Research Ch 3Use students’ interestAllow them to be the expertsDon’t be limited by your own knowledge and keep an open mind to their ideas“Research is formalized curiosity, It is poking and prying with a purpose” - Zora Neale Hurston, in Dust Tracks on a Road, 1942With your neighbors take 5 minutes to come up with 3 strategies to engage your studentsDeveloping embryo movie

22 the Most Difficult Part
Picking the topicthe Most Difficult PartTopic (noun)a subject of conversation or discussion: to provide a topic for discussion.the subject or theme of a discourse or of one of its parts.Rhetoric, Logic. a general field of considerations from which arguments can be drawn.Should come from something of great INTERESTHobby or topic they know something aboutEncourage students to think about their environment/their lifeReal world applications/something in the newsOne to two wordsBegin keeping your journal/research log!Good resource is the “Topic Wizard” onBreak into groups based on age and interestDo Science Buddies – Topic Wizard and DiscussDetermining a topic (~5 minutes)Have them think of a topic/project that is long termYou would have your students do this over the course of 3 months or soFocus on just topic, not question

23 You get to design a project
In groups of 3-4 you will come up with a TOPIC, develop a TESTABLE QUESTION, create a RESEARCH PLAN and determine how to PRESENT YOUR DATAFirst, explore your interests and pick a topicEach of you do the “Topic Wizard” onThis should give ideas, not a project (your students can use the project suggestions as background information

24 Form your groupsBased on the topic wizard go stand under the sign that best fits your disciplineBreak into groups of 3-4 with those of similar interest and pick a topic for your research (REMEMBER: it should only be 1-2 words)

25 Background ResearchGeneral information about your problem that might include:Definition and/or explanation of the topic or problemDefinition and/or explanation of terms found in the problemInformation about topics that relate to the problemExplanation of why it is important to know about this problemWhile students are doing their research they are looking for questions that they would like to answerBefore the students develop their question, they need to do researchWe will not research our topicThis is an opportunity to bring in media people to help students navigate resources and learn how to use the libraryEncourage them to talk to experts in the fieldsReading and writing content area of analysis

26 Conducting background research
ResourcesUse internet - but look at sites, should look for “.edu” or “.gov”NOT ALL INFORMATION ON THE WEB IS CORRECT!Try using Googlescholar.com for journalsUse libraries – local resources and at NC State (as well as community and other colleges and universities)Talk to experts in the field - local and distant (NC State, Science Buddies, etc.)Create a bibliography of your sourcesAt least 3 for elementary and 5 for Junior and SeniorBefore the students develop their question, they need to do researchWe will not research our topicThis is an opportunity to bring in media people to help students navigate resources and learn how to use the libraryEncourage them to talk to experts in the fieldsReading and writing content area of analysis

27

28 Organize the information from the background research
Look at what you have learnedThink of questions that were not answeredNarrow your focus for your topic to a particular ideaDevelop the “testable” question!After students do research they can create testable question and organizeGroups present testable questions:Does the question tell you:topic (experimenting on or looking at)variable (testing/manipulating)(3) how measuringBe careful that students do not get too many variables

29 Creating a Testable Question
Based on background researchA scientific question usually starts with: How, What, When, Who, Which, Why, or WhereDesign a "fair test" that requires you to change only one factor (variable) and keep all other conditions the sameIf you cannot design a fair test, then you should change your questionYour science fair project question should involve factors or traits that you can easily measure using a number. Or, factors or traits that are easily identified.From topic to experiment 4 question worksheet (~10 minutes)1 – materials available related topic2 – things that topic does/act3 – the variable you can test, be sure to start with one variable4 – have to be able to measure/describe response to change to make it doableFinish by creating a testable question. Question should include topic, what is being changed/tested and what is being measured, i.e. how do different diets of earthworms effect the pH of the soilEach group take a piece of paper and marker, write down testable question and then present to groupQuestion must answer:topicwhat is being changed/testedwhat is being measuredFrom Science Buddies

30 Create your testable questions
“Topic to Experiment” worksheet (PDF in the files provided)This worksheet allows you to use your background research to guide you in developing your questionRemember your question must answer:What is your topicWhat is being changed/testedWhat is being measuredplantsplantsSoil FoodLight TemperatureWaterplantsFrom topic to experiment 4 question worksheet (~10 minutes)1 – materials available related topic2 – things that topic does/act3 – the variable you can test, be sure to start with one variable4 – have to be able to measure/describe response to change to make it doableFinish by creating a testable question.

31 Developing the Research Plan

32 Developing authentic Inquiry
Guiding Student Research Ch 3; p 58Generating research questionsSelecting variablesDeveloping simple controlsDeveloping relatively complex controlsMaking multiple observationsObserving intervening variablesUsing analog modelsSimple transformation of observationsComplex transformation of observationsDeveloping theories and mechanismsMultiple studies of the same typeMultiple studies of different typesStudying expert research reports

33 Things to think about Is this original? Is this doable? Materials
LocationHomeSchoolUniversityLaboratoryIndustrial SettingMedical CenterFieldMentorAdult sponsorScientistLocal experts

34 NCSEF website has a section on “Doing a Science Fair Project”
Includes:Before you Start your ProjectSelecting a Science ProjectWhat is the Scientific Method?Planning and Conducting the InvestigationOnline Resources

35 Developing a Research Plan
Question being addressed – the “testable” questionHypothesis/Problem/GoalDescription in detail of method/proceduresWritten in future tense (BEFORE experimentation)Fluid process that may require rewritingWhat type of data you are planning to collect (what is being measured)Need to have controls and document factors that influence experimentBe sure to have large enough numbers to be validNeed to have limited variables so that you know what is changing and whyHow will you analyze the data that you collectThink about materials

36 Develop a research plan to investigate YOUR testable question
In groups create a basic research planOn your large paper write down:Location of experimentationMaterials needed (the main ones)Basic timeline (how long will you conduct the experiment)Do you need a mentor/scientist?Type of data you plan to collectThis will most likely be the last thing before lunch. Groups can start working and then after lunch give about 5 m to put thoughts together and write them on their sheetsWork on research plan (30 minutes):Design small group research plan to present/discuss to entire group. Groups present and give time for everyone to ask questions.Questions to ask:- What things did you find out while developing your research plan?Already been doneCommon knowledge – think about other variablesWere you able to narrow things down to one variable?What kind of data you are collecting?After everyone presents ask did anyone have any safety issues? This will lead to talking about rules and forms

37 Rules and Regulations We follow the rules put forth by ISEF
Can find the complete rules as a PDF in your workshop folderWhy?Protects studentsProtects youRaises the expectations for quality workGets scientists involved in your schoolAllows students to compete at higher levelsDevelops understanding of how science is regulated in U.S.

38 Does your project follow the rules?
ISEF rules wizard can be useful to determine forms neededDo wizard to determine if they need additional forms. Ask who needed which forms and discuss why they were needed.In your group, take 5 minutes to do the wizard for your project

39 The commonly missed form –
Form 3 (Risk AssessmentAny devices or compounds that are regulated by ANY agency (local, state, or federal); requiring the signature of a licensed individual (i.e. pharmacist, doctor); or introduce a risk above and beyond that encountered in the student’s everyday life.If in doubt, fill it out!!!DEA Controlled SubstancesPrescription DrugsAlcohol & TobaccoFirearms (including bows) & ExplosivesHazardous Chemicals – if label has a warning on the use, then consider it hazardousRadiationHazardous Devices (dad may be a carpenter, student is not, therefore power tools are hazardous)FireBoiling water
