The Ecology Science Fair centers on student-driven investigations in ecology, encouraging students to engage in all steps of the research process, including the important final step of data presentation.
For the past 22 years, the Ecology Science Fair has provided a forum for elementary, middle school and high school students to present their research. Students conduct research in their classrooms, homes and schoolyards, and then share their findings with other students, teachers and scientists in this annual celebration of student achievement.
Students present their project by discussing their poster and answering interview questions from a scientist. They also attend two breakout sessions that include fun ecology-related STEM activities. All participants receive a lunch, t-shirt and awards for presenting projects.
