In the past, it was common to visit science fairs where the projects were highly predictable. While the types of experiments evolved over time, the over-all themes tended to remain relatively constant. In recent years, that has started to change. Innovative teaching coupled with easier access to computers and sophisticated materials have allowed students to develop projects that are proving to be more cutting edge than ever seen in the past. Rapid advancement in sciences are quickly transmitted to schools through the use of computers. Increasingly savvy students quickly assimilate the knowledge and use it to develop truly unique experiments.
The next step is a conversation about why boys/girls act the way they do, followed by lots of questions about crushes, flirting and relationships. Theres also some discussion about parents and why they seem to be so annoying, but at this point the kids are much more interested in themselves and their classmates. We have one more day together. I ask each gender separately how they would like to frame our last day together. Unanimously the kids tell me they would like to ask each other some questions to gain understanding into why boys/girls act the way they do. I give them an opportunity to write down their questions anonymously and end with an "anxiety check". Everyone is feeling pretty comfortable.
