The Science Fair is a rigorous three-month project that all Advanced Science students are required to participate in. The Science Fair takes up a considerable amount of valuable class instruction time and doesn't cover topics that are assessed on standardized tests. The Science Fair has been infamous in causing extreme levels of stress and anxiety in students. The deadlines and due dates that face students over months of intense work are stressful and, to be frank, pointless. The Science Fair is nothing but an excuse to have a separate Advanced Science course. Between Advanced Science and 8 Science, the similarities are striking, while the differences are not so much. Advanced students learn much of the same content as 8 Science students do, although in shorter periods of time. The Science Fair is the one main difference between Advanced Science and 8 Science at SMS. While the Science Fair could be seen as a positive learning experience by some, the cons far outweigh the pros. Between stress and the question of its entire existence, the SMS Science Fair needs to come to an end. Sign this petition if you agree. ~ Many supporters
