MisterScienceFair co-founder Barnas Monteith slated for Winter season science fair book release

Dinosaur Eggs & Blue Ribbons: Science Fairs Inside & Out, published by Tumblehome Learning and distributed by IPG, Independent Publishers Group (so you can purchase library and school copies through Baker & Taylor, Follett, etc. or major retailers/e-tailers) is lined up for IPG’s winter season release.

The book is a personal look at science fairs through coming up with an idea, to going out in the field and collecting data (in this case, the field is the desert in Arizona and Montana), and entering science fairs for 6 years, to winning multiple International Science Fairs and breaking various science fair records.  Part memoir, and part how-to, Dinosaur Eggs & Blue Ribbons is a must-have book for every would-be science fair participant in upper elementary & middle school grades.  Suggestions and tips are informed from the perspective of both a participant and leader of one of the USA’s first and currently fastest growing science fair organizations, the MA State Science & Engineering Fair, held annually at MIT for the past 65 years.

Below is an early artist’s conception of the book cover, featuring a cartoon layover, on top of the real science project display boards used during Barnas’ early science fair years:
