Linking NGSS, PBL & Science Fairs

Thinking about my Buck Institute training on Project Based Learning, and my years of service as President of the Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair Committee, there is no better way a fellow science teacher can support and make connections to NGSS Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) than by doing science fair research. Literally every single SEP is addressed when students do science research projects!

Check out this link to the Los Angeles County Science and Engineering Fair website that builds a very strong case to support science fair projects through Project Based Learning.
