Science Fairs open doors you didn’t even know existed

Want to do a science fair project, but don’t know where to start? We’re here to help!

First things first: you need to find an idea!
What interests you? What are you passionate about? What makes you excited?
Find an aspect of science, and start asking questions!
It can be in any area of science – biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, computing, astronomy, psychology, math — the possibilities are endless!

We have some resources that can help you find an idea – but remember to always make it your own.

Next, you will need to find out more about your topic. You can look in books, on the internet, in magazines, or ask someone you know.

The next step is to make a hypothesis — what question are you going to try and answer?

Once you have a hypothesis, you can do an experiment, create an innovation, or do a study to try to answer your questions.
Remember, in science you can prove, or disprove your hypothesis.

Once you have done your experiment, innovation, or study, you will need to get ready to present at the fair!
You will need to make a backboard that has information about your project on it.
Common headings are: Background, Hypothesis, Method, Results, Analysis, Conclusion, Future Work, and Bibliography
You can be creative when you make your backboard.

Don’t forget to register for the fair! Good luck!
