Step 1: Choose a Topic Highlights

The first step of the science fair project is to choose a topic for the project. This phase is patterned after the first step of the scientific method, which is to “Ask a Question”.

For the science fair project, there are three keys to choosing a topic:

  1. The students need to decide what area of science interests them.
  2. The students develop several questions about this area of science that they wish to answer.
  3. Finally, the students choose one of the questions to be the topic for their project.
