Science Projects Just Got Easier for Kids!

The Knoxville Board of Education reported a 20% drop in 11th grade science scores this past September. Kids' Tech Quest webside was recently launched to involve kids and parents in the pursuit of science, including choices for science fair projects.

 
PRLog - Dec. 17, 2012 - A new website from Kids Tech Quest was launched recently featuring science kits and projects to make the choice of science fair ideas easy.  The stated purpose of the site is to spark kids’ interest in science, technology and engineering.

Galsburg.com reported that the Knoxville Board of Education suffered a 20% drop in 11th grade science scores this past September.  As a nation, this should be of great concern.

The owners of the Kids’ Tech Quest website have become alarmed with the declining level of aptitudes of students in hard sciences and engineering and are seeking to do something about it.  “It is our belief that children, adolescents and teenagers start out with an intense interest in the things around them and they will, on their own, pursue these subjects if they are provided an opportunity to appropriate equipment and materials and they are not ceaselessly distracted with pointless video and TV material.  Imagine too what can happen if we, as the responsible adults, actively promote and participate in these things.”

The intended audience of this site includes (1) children, adolescents and teenagers interested in these subjects (2) parents and relatives of these young people and (3) educators, professional and homeschoolers alike.  The owners of the site hope to include everyone; boys, girls, and anyone of any age who wants to expand their knowledge of these subjects.

As we begin the new year, many students will have attention on science fairs and projects coming up in the spring.  The website is intended to provide support and assistance in selecting topics and then offering solutions to delivering high-quality, meaningful presentations within a limited budget.

As just one example of the ways Kids Tech Quest offers adventure is through the easy-to-assemble SnapCircuit® electrical circuits.  These snap together circuits teach the basics of electronics and also allows building real working applications.  In addition to electronics, basic computer and robotics, the site also offers materials on the topics of chemistry, biology and principles of alternative sources of energy.

The website provides a single location to see offerings from a wide variety of technical and scientific subjects, offering not only a place to browse and purchase related products, but also serve as source of information so buyers can evaluate the features and benefits of each product.

Future enhancements to the site include related books and other study materials with an emphasis on the use and application of these technologies, presented in a way that really encourages the kids to understand how these technologies are used in their environment, and, most important, brainstorm new applications.

For more information and an opportunity to comment, please visit the site for those science fair ideas, www.kidstechquest.com.
