College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado provides excellence in teacher education, counseling, technology and psychology, at the undergraduate and graduate level. One of the students featured in Science Fair is Kashfia Rahman, a soft-spoken girl at a sports-obsessed school in Brookings, South Dakota, who ends up winning first place in her category at the 2017 ISEF for her findings on the role of repeated acts of risky behaviors in blunting emotional and cognitive functions in adolescence—a project inspired by her surroundings in Brookings, where teen drug and alcohol abuse is common. Toward the beginning, Rahman is shown roaming her school’s campus and pointing to all the cabinets filled with frivolous trophies won by its less-than-impressive sports teams. A few scenes later, the filmmakers approach various groups of students hanging out in places like the cafeteria or the weight room—no one had ever heard of Rahman, even though she’d placed third in the ISEF the year before.

Honours is available to meritorious students, in either Education or Bachelor of Science. Honours in Education requires the completion of an alternative 12 credit-point honours pathway described in the Bachelor of Education (Secondary: Science) table of units. Completion of the degree is required in the minimum standard full-time duration. Fully certified, well-prepared, and experienced teachers were not evenly distributed across schools or classes.
The book also provides a detailed examination of how we know what we know about children’s learning of science-about the role of research and evidence. This book will be an essential resource for everyone involved in K-8 science education-teachers, principals, boards of education, teacher education providers and accreditors, education researchers, federal education agencies, and state and federal policy makers. It will also be a useful guide for parents and others interested in how children learn.
The education system in the United States begins with pre-kindergarten and can go through graduate school. Educational attainment and achievement are monitored and evaluated throughout primary and secondary school (elementary school through high school), often with benchmark testing that can have an effect on a school’s funding. Post-secondary educational institutions (community colleges, colleges, universities, and professional schools), while broad-ranging in terms of people served and topics available for study, have a growing reputation for their exorbitant costs and the amount of loans that students must take out in order to fund their education, and there is increased discussion about the actual worth of a college degree in terms of employability and future income.
