The 12th grade is really your last chance to create entries for your resume. These entries are necessary as they show colleges what type of student you are and what skills you have developed in high school. Many students who are trying to get into the best schools or science programs put a lot of effort into finding ways to stand out from all the other college applicants.
One option that high school seniors have is to enter a science competition, such as a science Olympiad or a science fair. These activities will give high school students the chance to show colleges that they not only have the academic proficiency to do well at these competitions, but that they also have the personal drive to take control of their education and their future. These are great indicators that a student will do well in college.
If you do decide to enter a science fair your senior year in high school you do not want to waste your time with basic or boring projects. You want your 12th grade science fair project to wow the judges and to really blow the judges' minds. This may mean that you have to work with science concepts or tools that you are unfamiliar with or that you will need to invest a great deal of energy and time in completing your project.
When developing a high school level science fair project you will want to make sure you utilize the tools that are at your disposal, such as microscopes, lab equipment and measuring devices that are owned by your high school. You will also want to spend a considerable amount of time researching your topic. The more you know about your topic before starting your project the better your science project will turn out.
