“Science Fairs Inside & Out” is an informational and editorial/opinion blog written by Barnas Monteith, Pat Monteith, and outside contributors, to give you an in-depth perspective on science fairs, from the point of view of a student (inside) and as an administrator, teacher or parent (out).

Stay tuned as we provide editorials about the current state of inquiry science in MA, the US and the world, ideas about science fair projects, judging tips, perspectives on trends in modern science fairs, thoughts about how to start, how to fund, how to administer and how to improve all kinds of science fairs — as well as more science-y and science fair-y musings.

The following are some of the categories and types of posts you’ll find in this blog:
