College Credit for your Research Project

Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity to earn 4 college credits from Portland State University for meeting specific benchmarks with their research projects. The instructor of this HS Natural Science Inquiry course is Kate Norton.  Look at the accompanying documents for more information.  

SSP Fellows Program

Society for Science & the Public (SSP), with generous support from Intel, is pleased to announce the 2nd year of its Fellows Program. The goal of the program is to enable Fellows to guide students in producing project-based research of the highest quality, such as is submitted to SSP’s premiere science competition, the Intel Science Talent Search.

The SSP Fellows Program will attract the most creative and motivated high school science and math teachers in the country. The SSP Fellows Program provides funds and training to selected U.S. science and math teachers who serve under-resourced students, to enable interested and motivated students to perform high-quality independent scientific research.

Through a competitive selection process, the Program will provide teachers the financial and training resources necessary to support and inspire the success of their most enthusiastic science and math students. Fellows may serve for up to four years.

Team Oregon Meets Conan O'Brien

One of the highlights of the 2009 Intel ISEF was a visit by Conan O'Brien. He visited the exhibit hall during setup day and interviewed lots of people. They've finally posted some videos from those interviews and some Beaverton-Hillsboro Science Expo winners were featured prominently. Who knew we had comic geniuses as well as scientific ones? Check out the "Intel Science Fair, part 1" and "Intel Science Fair, part 2" videos here: http://www.tonightshowwithconanobrien.com/intel/.

Summary:
The 2009 competition will comprise of middle school students currently enrolled in the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade. The middle school grade competition will be a derivative of the current competition guidelines developed by Intel Northwest Science Expo (NWSE). The guidelines set forth by Intel NWSE were selected due to the familiarity and program awareness by Oregon Science Teachers.

There are several changes for the 2009 science competition. In 2008, the competition was open to 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. In 2009, the science competition will be open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The categories have also been expanded to cover more competitive categories. In addition, the science competition will be entirely open-class. There is no longer a requirement to roll-up from a county fair.
