Investigative Science Symposium/Fair (ISS) 2002
May 2, 2002

Investigative Science Symposium/Fair [ISS] for Spring 2002 was a joint effort by a Committee of Queens College and Queens High Schools. It was designed to promote the practice of scientific investigations as part of science teaching and learning and to encourage real investigative science projects of 9th and 10th grade Queens High School students. The ISS projects are standards-based and are expected to be small-scale but real 'Hands-on, Minds-on' investigations and to take about 3 to 6 weeks. They are not intended to be 'Intel-level' science projects.

Teacher Committees at each participating Queens High School selected and sent the student finalists to be shown at Queens College on May 2, 2002. A maximum of 5 student projects [with two students per project] from each school judged to have ‘exceeded standards' were shown. The student finalists had the opportunity to display a summary of their work and with their teachers and family members to tour the Queens College Research Laboratories in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Experimental Psychology.

ALL student participants at Queens College on that date received a certificate honoring their investigative work. A small number of students were awarded the opportunity to participate in the Queens College Summer Science Camp.
