Science fair 101 student version

  1. 1. • Investigative In this type of project you ask a question, construct a hypothesis, test your hypothesis using an experiment and draw conclusions from your experiment. • Laboratory Demonstration In this type of project you repeat an experiment and retest a hypothesis. These experiments can be found in books, on the net or your science classroom. • Research and Poster In this type of project you do extensive research on a topic, write a research paper and do a visual of the main points of what you found in your research. Many times backboards are used to the visual part of this project. • Hobby or Collections In this type of project you display a collection of objects or interesting artifacts so that the viewer gets a sense of knowledge about your topic. It involves library research but generally no hypothesis is formulated or tested. Examples: Rock collections, insect collections. • Model Building In this type of project you build a scaled model to illustrate a scientific principle. Examples: Shadow boxes of land formations, a model of the solar system.
  2. 2. • A model • A report • A chart/poster

  4. 4. • All Advanced students are required to do a science fair project. • All other students are required to do science projects.
  5. 5. 1. Student proposes question and experimental plan. 2. Teacher approves question and plan. 3. Student finds a minimum of 5 references and completes Approval Form. 4. Forms are submitted to for approval. If incomplete or incorrect, student must correct BEFORE experimentation begins.
  6. 6. 6. Student begins experimentation. Data is recorded in a log book along with a daily account of all observations. 7. If the student finds they need to revise their project the Research Plan must be revised and the approval process is repeated. 8. At the end of experimentation, data is analyzed and a conclusion is drawn. 9. The student prepares their display board. 10. The project is turned in and a presentation is done for the class.
  7. 7. Scientific fraud and misconduct are not condoned at any level of research or competition. Plagiarism, use or presentation of other researcher’s work as one’s own, forgery of approval signatures and fabrication or falsification of data or approval dates will not be tolerated. Fraudulent projects will fail to qualify for competition in affiliated fairs or the ISEF.
  8. 8. •Students should begin their journal as soon as they begin the topic selection process. •Students should refer to the ISEF Rulebook and follow all rules. •Students should thoroughly research their topic and variable before writing their hypothesis.
  9. 9. All projects that involve: •Human Subjects •Vertebrate Animals •Potentially Hazardous Biological Agents •Controlled Substances •Hazardous Substances or Devices
