I remember when my children went to PA High School, and they participated in the county science fair. It was very good for them, becasue they needed to consider the basic model of science (hypothesis, methods, data, statistics, conclusions, defense).

Perhaps this new class could consider a science fair project. It was a lot of fun, too.
