Article excerpt

Small is Beautiful is the expression that applies to us. As a science educators association we represent laboratory technicians, non-classroom based educators (e.g. Questacon, CSIRO, CREST), tertiary educators (e.g. the University of Canberra and the Australian Catholic University), a few teachers--and that's just our councillors! Elsewhere in the ACT are members and supporters who deliver outstanding student-initiated research projects to our annual Science Fair and enthusiastically attend our annual conference, CONSEA*ACT.

The SEA*ACT Science Fair attracts entries from around 800-1000 students every year. All projects are enquiry-based, and might be completed by 'groups' (e.g. a class of 25 or 30) or 'individuals' (which can mean a small group of up to five students). Typically, 'group' projects are found in the Early-Childhood and Special-Education categories and projects completed by 'individuals' are typical of 'Secondary and Post-Compulsory' entries, while the fourth category, 'Primary' attracts a mix of projects.
