Digital Science Fair Projects

At the end of the year, many of our schools hold school wide science fairs. Students plan
Science fair project tri-fold display board
and implement projects and then present the process and resulting data on tri-fold display boards much like this.

One class decided to go green and do away with using display boards.

They conducted their experiments and recorded the data but rather than create paper reports they used their iPads.

Project Data Graphs

The students took pictures and video and created graphs and other visual representations and imported those into the Explain Everything app.

During the science fair, students brought their iPads to the school's multipurpose room and presented their projects to attendees right from the iPads.

In addition to using digital tools, these students are also developing their listening, speaking, and presentation skills - all vital to college and career readiness.
