Center for Values affiliate member Fred Grinnell will present on his current research.

Title: The Sociology of Science Fair

Description: Over the past 7 years, we have been studying students' experiences in high school science and engineering fairs. In this talk, I will present an overview of our research and then focus on our most recent report, which concerns ethnicity trends. The manuscript can be found online at and is in press and should appear in the journal PLOS ONE around 20 March.

The Values in Science Research Laboratory is a weekly meeting of faculty and student affiliates of the Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology and our guests to present and discuss research in progress and readings on shared areas of interest.
