Transcript

  • 1. Warm Up - Logbook GET A PEN!!! PUT YOUR PENCIL AWAY!!! Start numbering all of the pages in your logbook (composition book)
  • 2. Lanier Science and Engineering Fair
  • 3. What . . .
    • Falls to Earth at a rate of 30,000 metric tons a day?
    • Have you probably eaten before in a salad?
    • Are remnants of the time when the solar system formed 4.6 billion years ago?
  • 4. The Answer: Micrometeorites!
  • 5.  
  • 6. Did you Know?
    • A 12-year old’s solar cell may revolutionize the energy industry.
    • He developed his solar cell as part of a science fair project.
    • He developed a solar cell that is 3 dimensional instead of 2 dimensional and has the possibility to collect up to 500 times as much solar energy as traditional solar cells.
    • What important discovery will you make while completing your science fair project??
  • 7. How are these related to a science project?
  • 8. How are these related to a science project?
  • 9. How are these related to a science project?
  • 10. How are these related to a science project?
  • 11. How are these related to a science project?
  • 12. The Science of Fractals
    • They contain Large Degrees of self-similarity
    • They are closely related to computer graphics, programming, and mathematics
    • They can be seen in nature in clouds, lightning bolts, and snowflakes
    • A study of fractals would make a great science fair project!
  • 13. What is the Science and Engineering Fair?
    • A chance to do real scientific research in a science or engineering field
    • A long-term commitment that will requirement you to complete the majority of the work on your own
    • A chance to share your project results with scientists in the field
    • A chance to compete in the Gwinnett Regional Science and Engineering Fair – and maybe even the State fair!
  • 14. What the fair is not:
    • A place to present library research projects
    • A place to present projects that model science events like hurricanes and volcanoes
    • A place to complete projects based on studies that have already been completed
  • 15. Your Next Steps
    • Start asking questions! What are you curious about? Is it something you can figure out scientifically.
    • What kinds of science do you like? Plants, stars, chemistry, physics?
    • Start researching to get ideas and see what may be a possibility for you to do a project on.
  • 16. Remember -
    • You will be developing your project following scientific methods
    • Your logbook will become the MOST IMPORTANT part of your science fair project
    • We will have scheduled log book checks. Write everything in your logbook!
  • 17. Remember - Have Fun!
