The PI’s research

Author: Frank LaBanca, Ed.D.

Please list two (2) questions to ask a potential subject about problem finding for their research projects. DO NOT repeat any questions asked by other students. Please keep in mind the “current” research questions:

1. What are the differences in problem finding strategies for students who produce high quality open-inquiry science projects versus those of low quality, as determined by external evaluators?
2. How do parents, teachers, and mentors influence student problem finding?

3. What differences between superior and inferior science fair projects can be attributed to the ways students develop and find their research problems?
