Note to Parents
The science fair project blueprints provided on this site are intended to
help students plan and carry out experiments using the scientific method. They
provide suggestions and tips, enabling students to solve problems themselves.
Each science project is presented with sequential step-by-step guidelines which
encourages the student to work in an organized and well planned manner.
The purpose in most cases for creating a science
fair project is to teach students how to solve problems on their own using the
scientific method. For this reason, the content presented here gives suggestions
to the student on how to carry out the experiment,
what materials to use, provides tips to think about as they plan their own strategy, research, record
data, and draw conclusions.
Each project project includes information on the
scientific method, lab reports, and creating displays. Younger students may wish
to skip over these sections if they are merely wanting to create a simple
science project without having to understand the scientific method.
