Science Competitions Integrated Into Curriculum

via Education Week

Part of a series of articles about Science Learning Outside the Classroom

In many schools and districts, students prepare their scientific projects for competitions before or after school, or on weekends, often as extracurricular activities, sometimes as part of clubs.

But some teachers, such as Mr. Yucuis, have carried those activities a step further. The aerospace and engineering teacher is one of many educators who choose to fully integrate science competitions within their classes, curricula, and individual lessons, rather than treat them as one-shot events that are won or lost and then forgotten.
