What can we do as a school to help our students
with their projects?
  • We want our students to follow the scientific
    method in order to produce a top quality science
    fair project.
  • All students should record their journey in their
    log book

1st Step Deciding on a project
  • Students should select from one of the following
    areas that they are interested in
  • Behavioral
  • Biochemistry
  • Botany
  • Chemistry
  • Computer science
  • Earth and space
  • Engineering
  • Environmental science
  • Mathematics
  • Medicine and Health
  • Microbiology
  • Physics
  • Zoology

Step 2 Type of Project
  • Individual
  • Team consists of 2 or 3 members

Step 3 Student(s) should decide on a problem?
  • Students need to understand each category
  • Students need to think about areas of interest
    and match them with an appropriate category
  • Students need to conduct research (reading
    teachers can assist here) review current science
    magazines, web sites, books, etc.. in the school
  • Students at a later date will be required to
    submit a bibliography of their research (language
    art teachers)

Step 4The problem should be stated as a question
that can be answered (student needs to develop a
  • At this point the student needs to plan their
    experiment (science teacher)
  • Students should then write their research plan
    (language arts teachers) which should include
  • a) question being addressed
  • b) hypothesis/problem/engineering goals
  • c) description in detail of method or
    procedures should include a detail of all
    procedures and experimental design to be used for
    data collection and describe the procedures they
    will use to analyze the data that answer their
    research question or hypothesis (graphs, charts
    tables etc. social studies teachers and science
  • d) bibliography list at least 5 major
    references (same style)

Step 5 Conduct the experiment
  • School
  • Home
  • Field
  • Research institute
  • Students should use their log book to record all

Step 5Analyze results/Draw conclusions
  • School
  • Home
  • Field
  • Research institute
  • Students should use their log book to record all

Step 6Complete a research paper (language arts
  • Should include the following
  • Title page
  • Table of contents
  • Introduction
  • Material and methods
  • Results
  • Discussion
  • Conclusions
  • Bibliography

Step 7 Complete project display board
  • Should include the following
  • Purpose
  • Hypothesis
  • Procedure
  • Title
  • Pictures or etc..
  • Graphs
  • Conclusion
  • Abstract

Step 8 Complete the Abstract
  • An abstract is a summary of the entire project,
    written in 250 words or less. It includes
    statements concerning the problem, experiment,
    results, and bibliography. The abstract must be
