This week we are going to talk about the next step in creating super science fair projects, drawing your conclusions. Your conclusions are going to be based on your data analysis, that you conducted in the last step, as well as on the background research your conducted earlier. This is a very important step in […]
This week you are collecting data when following the scientific method. You do this after you complete doing your science fair experiment. During this step of the scientific method you will be doing two things, (1) completing your experiments and (2) collecting data. This step can take anywhere from a few minutes to several months […]
This week we are moving on to the next step in the scientific method, designing your experiment. This step is one that you need to pay close attention to, as it will determine how successful your science fair project will be. By the way, if you have been following this blog this month then you […]
Last week we talked about developing your science fair project’s hypothesis and this week we will be discussing how to conduct the background research for your project. This is an activity that needs to be done both before you create your hypothesis and after you develop your hypothesis. Whether you are working on an easy […]
There are specific steps that you need to take when developing a hypothesis for your electronics themed science fair projects. The first step is to select a topic related to electronics. Then you will need to ask questions about this topic that you are interested in the answers. For example, you may want to know […]

This week we are going to talk about developing a hypothesis. During the month of September we will be going over each step of the scientific method. Each week we will tackle a different component. Your hypothesis is basically a prediction of what will happen or a question that you want to answer. For example, […]
DIY science fair projects are designed specifically to compliment your level of understanding and your level of scientific expertise. Unfortunately, when many kids approach their science fair projects for the first time they are scared and a little bit intimidated. However, these projects can be a lot of fun if you approach them in the […]
