Abstract

Research shows the importance of active learning, especially within science classes. One way to achieve this goal is to incorporate student-driven projects into the course (e.g., posters). Traditionally, science-poster assignments follow the spirit of the science fair in which a student conducts an experiment and analyzes the results. This article offers an alternative take on science posters: position posters, another way to get students engaged. Students pick their own topic and then present the scientific evidence for their topics and come to a conclusion of their own. Choosing their own topics encourages them to become more invested in the process of completing the poster, and overall, students enjoy the learning process.
