Timeline and Dates
Jefferson County Schools has formed a partnership
with the Appalachian Electric Cooperative for the
Science Fair.
  • February 11-14  Local Elementary School Science
    Fairs
  • February 19 Jefferson County 5th Grade
    County-Wide Science Fair

SCHEDULE FOR COUNTY-WIDE ELEMENTARY SCIENCE
FAIRDATE FEBRUARY 19LOCATION DANDRIDGE
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
  • Projects must be in place at Dandridge Elementary
    School Library by 1200 NOON on the 19.
  • Each school may send one representative for each
    fifth grade classroom. Students may come from
    any of the classrooms.
  • Projects will be judged between 200 p.m. and
    400 p.m..
  • Students will be present at their project by 400
    to talk to the judges about their project.
  • Awards ceremony will begin at 600 p.m.
  • Students participating in the county-wide fair
    will be treated to a Pizza Party before the
    ceremony sponsored by Appalachian Electric
    Cooperative.
  • All projects MUST be removed from the library
    immediately following the

Role of the Teacher
  • You are an advisor.
  • Recognize the need for active student
    involvement.
  • Respect student ideas and help steer them in the
    correct direction.
  • Praise and encourage students.
  • Advise students of resources available.

6
Tips for the Students
  • A Science Fair project is an investigation not
    a demonstration. There is a question that must
    be answered.
  • If they have a demonstration in mind, help them
    to alter the thought process to asking a
    question What is in _______? Why does this
    happen? Can I do this a better way? How does
    temperature change the behavior?

Components of a Project
  • Question or Problem
  • Hypothesis If then format
  • Methods
  • Materials
  • Results drawings, pictures, graphs, tables
  • Conclusion

DO NOT use I, we, you!
8
Variables
  • The independent variable is the one that is
    changed by the scientist. In an experiment there
    is only one independent variable.
  • The dependent variable changes in response to the
    change the scientist. Experiments also have
    controlled variables.
  • There should be a Control. No experimental
    treatment is applied.
  • Constants are conditions that remain the same for
    all parts of the experiment, such as measuring
    the water, always by a window, same position in
    the room, etc.

Display Board
Arrange information so that it is easy to read
and flows in a logical order. Top to bottom and l
eft to right.

Examples
No living or dead organisms in the display
(plants or animals).

Sample Materials List( From Science Buddies)
  • CD player a CD (low drain device)
  • Three identical flashlights (medium drain device)

  • Camera flash (high drain device)
  • AA size Duracell and Energizer batteries
  • AA size of a "heavy-duty" (non-alkaline) battery
    (I used Panasonic)
  • Voltmeter a AA battery holder
  • Kitchen timer

12
Sample Procedure( From Science Buddies)
  • Number each battery so you can tell them apart.
  • Measure each battery's voltage by using the
    voltmeter.
  • Put the same battery into one of the devices and
    turn it on.
  • Let the device run for thirty minutes before
    measuring its voltage again. (Record the voltage
    in a table every time it is measured.)
  • Repeat 4 until the battery is at 0.9 volts or
    until the device stops.
  • Do steps 15 again, three trials for each brand
    of battery in each experimental group.
  • For the camera flash push the flash button every
    30 seconds and measure the voltage every 5
    minutes.
  • For the flashlights rotate each battery brand so
    each one has a turn in each flashlight.
  • For the CD player repeat the same song at the
    same volume throughout the tests.
