Stipends for Participants that establish a Scientific Review Committee at their School
Helping students select the “right” project
We all want our students to find the best projects possible to be competitive at the Science and Engineering Fair. But are there “trade secrets”? And will the students project clear the scientific review process of the Fair? At this workshop we will examine best practices in project selection as well as teach you how to establish your OWN scientific review committee to determine eligibility of projects. All of our workshop components will include practical implementation strategies for your classroom. Use these techniques as teaching points to increase project quality schoolwide.

STIPEND FOR ESTABLISHING A SCHOOL SCIENTIFIC REVIEW COMMITTEE
For those teachers who attend the workshop and establish a Scientific Review Committee– They will be compensated $50 upon submission of their first project that has been school-reviewed. All school-reviewed projects are subject to secondary review by the Connecticut Science and Engineering Fair’s Scientific Review Committee. Due to space limitations and in the spirit of inclusiveness, preference will be given to the first person registered per school.
