Students at the
Many students included a technology component, by creating PowerPoint presentations and displaying them using digital projectors. Students enjoyed the morning presenting their projects to the judges and guests. They were very enthusiastic and displayed a tremendous amount of knowledge about their topics.
As a concluding activity, students prepared a written reflection about the science fair experience, and compiled their materials into their end of the year or graduation portfolios. Overall, it was a very successful way to conduct an independent study of a science topic area of the student’s choice.
Congratulations to all!

This is the work of Silvio S. an eleventh grader. Unfortunately, while slideshare.net is an excellent free hosting site, it strips all of the effects and timing from the student power points. These look good on the blog but you are only seeing a static slide. When we view these on the projector they are even more impressive!

Here are a couple of pictures of our computer lab and one of the carts.
See how nice and neat the power cords are in the cart in the above picture?
Believe it or not, even though I numbered the shelves (and the corresponding computers) if the students put the computers away unobserved the cart will turn into an absolute Gordian knot of chaos!
I also like the cart keys because it looks like you are setting the launch codes both keys need to be turning to gain access.
Each student is issued a certain number on both cart one and two. That is then the computer they use each and every time.
More Power Points are on the way.
