On June 8, 2013, more than 100 junior and senior International Baccalaureate (IB) students from Robert E. Lee High School in Fairfax, Va., participated in the student-organized Lee High School Science Showcase. This event challenged students to share their high-level understanding of a particular science topic with community members—including peers, younger students and guest scientists—in a way that could be easily understood. Outstanding public relations efforts coordinated by the students drew a large crowd to the showcase. Through exhibits and hands-on demonstrations, the students brought abstract science concepts to life. Kudos to the student participants and their faculty advisor, Heather Moore, a 2010 KSTF Teaching Fellow. See local coverage of the Science Showcase.
