The following ten steps describe how to do a science fair project. 1. Science Fair Project Judging
science fair projects are judged on seven criteria which will guide you as you develop your project. These criteria are creativity, skills, clarity, thoroughness, neatness, integrity and results.
2. Science Project Types
Determine which of the five types of science fair projects that you want to do: original research, demonstration, investigation, collections or models.
3. Science Fair Project Categories
Fourteen science fair project categories have been designated by the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF): behavioral and social sciences, biochemistry, chemistry, botany, computer science, earth and space sciences, engineering, environmental sciences, gerontology, mathematics, medicine and health, microbiology, physics, and zoology.
4. Branches of Science
There are more than a hundred branches of science from which to find an area of science that interests you. Examples include psychology, theory of games, nutrition, computer graphics, organic chemistry, atomic physics and endangered species.
5. Science Fair Topics
The listing of science fair topics is intended to suggest a topic for your project. More than forty project topics are presented on this one website.
6. Science Fair Ideas
Substantial help in choosing a subject for your project is provided in the Science Fair Ideas Guide as well as hints and tips on how to conduct your project.
7. Research Methods
There are two science project research methods: investigative research and experimental research. Resources are provided for both research methods.
8. Scientific Method
The scientific method is explained by applying the scientific method to an example of a science project. The six steps of the scientific method are described.
9. Science Fair Display
