    Science fair projects give ME ulcers! They were super-stressful as a child, and now I have 4 kids with projects due!! Luckily two of them were due this weekend and the other 2 are due in two weeks. I totally slack and pick something easy and do the bare minimum (unlike my childhood, where my parents orchestrated my project so that I could win and go to the science symposium). I really don’t see the point in them….if they are meant to create bonding time with your child or induce a joy in scientific discovery…..they miss the mark!

    Science fair = CLASSISM. Nuff said.

    Love this. And not looking forward to science projects (oldest is 4 years). But the kitchen scrap garden is brilliant. Stowing that idea away…

    You know, I totally hated on my kids science fairs this year. A couple weeks afterwards, I was reading “Shit my Dad Says” and decided to read the chapter to my kiddos wherein the scientist dad flips out that the author fudged his results on his science fair project.
    I decided to try not to get a hernia over it next year; to use it as an opportunity to work and explore and lead my kids. Yeah, I’ll probably do most of the work, and I could be bummed about that, or I could think how doing things as a kid should require (and receive) guidance.
    We’ll see how I do when we get to next year’s fair.
