The Highlights

Why should you do a science fair project?

A science fair project is a vital tool the teacher can use with his or her students to increase their understanding and familiarity with the scientific method.

The science fair project follows the steps of the scientific method from start to finish, plus two extra steps for sharing their work. 

The steps to complete one

The eight steps needed to complete the science fair project are:

  1. Choose a Topic
  2. Do Some Research
  3. Formulate a Hypothesis
  4. Design an Experiment
  5. Perform the Experiment
  6. Analyze the Data
  7. Create a Board
  8. Give a Presentation
