6th grade science fair projects explore renewable energy…

The 6th grade is one of the best years in school. This is because you are in a new phase of your education, middle school. The science that you learn about is more advanced and you get the chance to complete hands on learning activities like science experiments and science fair projects.

Renewable energy can be a great topic to explore when you are in the 6th grade, particularly if you are interested in participating in a science fair. The first step that you will want to take is to select a type of renewable energy source to work with, such as wind, solar, water or geothermal. Remember to select a topic that you are interested in.

The next step is to figure out your approach to the topic. For example, you may want to experiment with the impact that the use of a specific renewable energy source has on the environment, or you may want to find a way to make using the renewable energy source more efficient. You can also try to find new ways to utilize renewable energy sources.

If you are having a hard time coming up with a topic or an angle then you will want to conduct what is known as a literature review. A literature review is basically just a report on your topic. You collect and summarize the information that is available on your topic. This information will then help you to set up your science fair project. This is one of the required steps in completing a science fair project and it is usually done before a hypothesis or experiment is developed.

    Science Fairs!
    Get ready for this year’s science fair with a MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field trip to Baylor University to meet Janice VanCleave, the author of dozen of books about science and science fair projects. Young grace (age 11) learns about what goes into making an award winning science fair project.

    MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids (www.meetmeatthecorner.org)
    is a series of free educational video pod casts is directed at kids ages 7-12. Each three-minute episode includes links to fun websites, a list of recommended books and a Learning Corner of questions and extended activities about the topic.

    My son is in the 6th grade and is just beginning to learn about renewable energy. He’s become very eco conscience as well. Saving all our left overs for his compose garden has gotten a little out of hand though.

    Great post, although no matter what anyone says renewable energy is the way of the future and in my opinion small jumps are being made forward, however it is interesting to consider where we will be in say 100 years or so!

    Excellent work on this garden article. It makes for an interesting and thoughtful read. Keep up the quality writing. Myself i prefer to go the organic route. But I’m rather particular.

    My son is in year 11 here in the u.k (age 16) but they dont do science fairs here. He is studying chemistry and physics and I would love the school to get involved in projects like this.
