Step 4: Support Your Students!
Advise your student competitors as you see fit. But remember, this is a student competition and final products should reflect the work of your students. Support students by providing workshops on data interpretation, graph making, science writing and literacy. Hold after school work sessions and encourage student teams to get together outside of school hours. Partner with an art teacher in your school.
