The purpose:

The Science & Math Expo is designed to demonstrate the importance of mathematics and the sciences to middle school children no matter what profession they ultimately select. Through the Science & Math Expo, students learn:

  • The scientific process, including how to evaluate problems and think like a scientist
  • New research and discoveries in science
  • Equipment used in science
  • Fun ways to apply the mathematics they know
  • Going beyond the classroom in developing their ideas
  • More about careers in science and math

During the Expo, students present their science and math projects to reviewers, other participants and visitors. Reviewers create a learning dialog between student scientists and do not judge the student's work in the traditional sense.
