Name:Sample Science Fair Projects

Brief Description of the Site:
Besides its “For Teachers†page this science-fair site also offers pages “For Students†and “For Parents.†The “For Teachers page is a portal with many, many links to sites providing information about science fairs as well as free classroom newsletters, Internet sites for kids, science competitions, and more. It’s a good resource for the educator who wants to encourage science-minded students to become more involved by entering science fairs and competitions. And before they enter those students should spend time at the “For Students†pages, which offer loads of useful and useable advice in a very kid-friendly format. Sample topics include: “Choosing a Category,†“Choosing a Topic,†“The Scientific Method,†and “How Science Judges Think.†A delightful cartoon character, Detective ThinkMore, helps students around their pages.

How to use the site:
If they are seriously considering entering science competitions, encourage your students to spend time at the “For Students†page absorbing the wealth of information available there. And once they begin the process they will want to return to make use of features such as Science Project Log and Why a Timeline. Educators will find the many links available at the For Teachers page a valuable resource. In fact, this might be a good place to spend some summer free time preparing for next semester’s science-fair activities.
