Science Fairs

My brother-in-law, who is an excellent physics teacher, spent a lot of years founding, running and judging science fairs. Science fairs, done correctly, are an excellent learning tool.

But um...

I feel the need to provide an alternative, student-eye view of science fairs:

I think my brother-in-law's science fairs worked better because, in part, they were not compulsory, but intended for those who were actually interested in science and in participating. (The other part is that my brother-in-law is kind of an outstanding teacher, so, you know, don't necessarily try this at home, or your school, unless you actually care as much as my brother-in-law.)
