Two students and I received a request to appear on Phil Mikan’s Corner Radio Show. Phil’s show broadcasts from Middletown, CT and is heard on WLIS and WMRD.
Phil asked us to join him to talk about our successes at the Connecticut Science Fair. Both of my students were finalists and won some significant awards.
One of the most interesting comments about the experience came after we left when one student said, “Boy, I never knew all fo the things I would get to see because I did a science fair project.”
How true. Authentic experiences breed other authentic experiences. I wrote about those unique experiences last year as well. There is something magical about doing real work (in this case, science research that has an authentic audience), because “real” people want to hear about it.
