  •  Organize a team and pick a topic!  Submit proposal (1 paragraph per team)  Background research (At least 5 citations and 3 summary sentences per resource)  Submit Question, Hypothesis, and Variables  Design experiment  Submit designs  Complete your experiment!  Organize a team and pick a topic!  Submit proposal (1 paragraph per team)  Background research (At least 5 citations and 3 summary sentences per resource)  Describe your need, criteria, and constraints  Draw Prototype Design  Submit designs  Build your prototype! Science Project Engineering Project
  •  Collect Data  Analyze Results  Write Conclusion  Write Lab report  Design your board  Win science fair! View slide
  •  Work by yourself, with a partner or group of three  Groups cannot be larger than 3 people!  No volcanos!  You will have to get a science fair board. (Cost about $3)  Required!  Science Fair is….  Whole school is competing!  We’ll have judges and prizes!  Winners will go to county science fair next year! View slide
  •  These parts count as test grades:  Proposal  Lab Book  Science Report (counts 2 times!)  Project Board  Presentation  These parts count as classwork grades:  Background research  Submitting question, hypothesis, and variables (or need, criteria and constraints)  Submitting Designs  Revising Designs  Data Analysis  Conclusion
  • You can look on the Science Fair tab under Mrs. McCarthy’s website for ideas!
  • DON’T JUST PICK A TOPIC— CHOOSE SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN AND IT WILL BE MUCH EASIER!!!
  •  Test a commercial claim (best brand of paper towels, best toilet paper, best tooth paste, longest lasting battery, etc)  Fix an experiment we did this year (fruit decomposition, heart rate and exercise, etc)  Design something! (Here’s you chance to invent the bed-maker-automatic!)  What do you love to do? (Yes! You can play video games for this HW assignment!)  What’s a topic you want to know more about? (Do pea plants really have dominant and recessive traits?)  What do you think would improve the world? (How can we help people with arthritis?)  Use your life for a spring board! https://www.googlesciencefair.com/springboard/en/
  •  What factors affect mold growth?  What affects do certain chemicals have on plant life?  How do planaria react to changes in light, pH, or temperature changes?  Are night insects attracted to lamps because of heat or light?  Do bacteria affect plant growth?  How does exercise affect body temperature?  Which is more effective against bacteria, hand sanitizers or soap?  How does the salinity of water affect the hatching population of brine shrimp?  How does the volume of sound affect heart rate?  How does the age of a person affect reaction time?  How does the type of music affect heart rate?  Botany Science Fair Project Ideas How does magnetism affect the growth of blooms?  Which plants are the best conductors of electricity?  How do different types of water (distilled, acidic) affect plants?  How do different colors of light affect plant growth?  How do phosphates affect aquatic plants?  How does soil temperature affect seed germination?  How does soil temperature affect root growth?  Do vitamins affect plant growth?  Do plants grow better in water or soil?  Does the 5 second rule work?  What is the impact of temperature on the rate of decomposition?
