Clarkson's Dana Barry Publishes Children's Science Fair Book

Dana M. Barry of Canton, editor & technical writer for Clarkson University’s Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), has published a book titled Science Fair Projects: Helping Your Child Create a Super Science Fair Project. Published this year by Teacher Created Materials, Inc., Science Fair Projects should prove to be an asset to parents and teachers with children between the ages of eight and twelve.

Barry has virtually given parents and teachers a step-by-step approach to tackling just about any science project. Chapters include “The Problem-Solving Model,” “Ideas for Science Projects,” “Planning the Project,” “Developing the Project,” “Displaying the Project” and “Practice Projects.”

“I am very excited about my new book and hope that it is a hit with science teachers and their students,” said Barry.

Barry is also the author of several science education books and the science education music tape “Chemical Sensation” with the Barry Tones.

She was recently offered the opportunity to lecture at Anstead University in Malaysia after being awarded 1999/2000 International Woman of the Year. She has also been awarded the Twentieth Century Award for Achievement (2000); Outstanding People of the 20th Century (2000); 2000 Outstanding Scientists of the 20th Century (2000); and Dictionary of International Biography – 28th Ed.
