Title: Science Fair


1
Science Fair
  • 2008-2009
  • CJCP
  • SOMERSET/ NJ

2
Why Science Fair?
  • CJCP is organizing science fair
  • to show a connection between what is learned in
    the class and what happens in real life.
  • to help develop skills in communicating both
    verbally and in writing.
  • to help develop skills of interpretation and
    analysis of data.
  • to learn how to complete long range projects.
  • to acquire skills of research using a variety of
    resources such as the Internet, interviews,
    books, magazines, etc.
  • to promote unique opportunities for us to work
    individually with you.
  • to learn, understand, and apply the scientific
    method.
  • to stimulate interest, curiosity, and desire to
    explore the mysteries of the world.

3
General Rules and Regulations
  • All middle school students are required to
    complete and submit a science fair project
  • Students will receive a grade which will be 40
    of their 4th marking period grade.
  • All students are encouraged to do group projects
    (2 people), if the class has an uneven of
    students/specific conditions, than 1 student may
    do the project.
  • Late projects will not be accepted.
  • 1st place 100, 2nd place 75 and 3rd place
    will get 50 gift card.

4
When is Science Fair?
  • May 30th ,2009
  • 11 am-2 pm

5
How can we make Science Fair Projects?
  • Research
  • Turn the idea into a science fair project
  • Problem/Purpose
  • Hypothesis
  • Materials
  • Variables
  • Procedure
  • Observations/Data/Results
  • Analysis
  • Conclusion

6
Science Fair Notebook
  • Buy a science fair notebook

7
Research
  • Make a list of topics of interest. If you need
    help coming up with specific ideas, go to your
    local library or search the Web for books and
    lists of science fair projects
  • For example Detergents

8
Turn the idea into a science fair project
  • Once you come up with an idea, determine what
    question will be answered through the project. In
    other words, a question needs to be posed and
    then a hypothesis needs to be made

9
Problem / Purpose
  • This is the question that your experiment
    answers.
  • What is your goal?
  • What idea are you trying to test?
  • What is the scientific question you are trying to
    answer?
  • Ex Which detergent removes stains the best?

10
Hypothesis
  • Based on the research you have done, you will be
    writing an answer or solution your best
    educated guess to your question. Make sure you
    write down your hypothesis before you begin your
    experiment.
  • Tell how you think your project can demonstrate
    your purpose.
  • Make a prediction regarding the outcome of your
    experiment.
  • Ex Tide will be the best because of

11
Variables
  • Controlled variables These are the things that
    are kept the same throughout your experiments.
  • Independent variable The one variable that you
    purposely change and test.
  • To find the best detergent, you have to use same
    fabric/cloth, same water source, same stain
    source. Only change the detergents

12
Materials
  • Type a detailed list of the items you needed to
    complete your experiments.
  • Be specific about the amounts used.
  • Just to start
  • 1. Notebook
  • 2. Index cards
  • 3. Flash Drive

13
Procedure
  • List all of the steps used in completing your
    experiment.
  • Remember to number your steps.
  • Add photos of your experiments.

14
Data/Observations
  • It is easier to understand the data if it is put
    into a table or graph. Create a graph in
    Microsoft Excel.
  • Make sure all data is clearly labeled.
  • You have to use metric system.

15
Conclusion
  • Type a brief summary of what you discovered based
    on the results of your experiments. You need to
    indicate whether or not the data supports the
    hypothesis and explain why or why not.
