See the 
Fair in Action!

The purpose of the Shadow Program is to give Title 1 students and teachers an introduction to what goes on at a science fair and what goes into the execution of a science or engineering project. This is a great way to meet their peers in their role as a scientist or engineer, see them in action as they present their research findings, learn from each student presenter how and why they did their projects, and meet the professional scientists during judging rounds with the goal to get an idea and excited about doing a project of their own in the future.
