February begins the science fair season here in Arkansas. I start my students off in October with numerous deadlines along the way. I give detailed instructions, as this student noted, and I provide all sorts of assistance; staying after school, making phone calls, placing orders, and many other things. I encourage, badger, and plain harass students to do their best. Witnessing their faces when they win prizes is so worth all the headache. At least I think so most of the time.
