Science Fair Project Verbal Presentations

How to Give a Science Fair Verbal Presentation

The final element of a winning science fair project is a good verbal presentation. There are two verbal presentations that you will need to plan ahead for. The first is the impromptu presentation that you make to individuals that approach your project at the science fair and there is the formal presentation that you make […]

The Scientific Method Concludes with Suggestions for Further Research

The Scientific Method and Importance of Further Research

The final step in the scientific method is to make suggestions for further research that still needs to be done. This step is important because it highlights the limitations of your findings and focus other researchers efforts on what you think still needs to be explored. Some students skimp on this section, but you don’t […]

Drawing Conclusions for Your Super Science Fair Projects

Draw Conclusions - The Scientific Method

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 […]

Collecting Data when doing the Scientific Method

Collecting Data for Science Fair Projects

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 […]

Designing Your Experiment

Designing Your Experiment

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 […]

The Scientific Method: Background Research for Science Fair Projects

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 […]

Developing Your Hypothesis – The Scientific Method

Developing a Hypothesis
