Science Fairs are popular in the United States, where students investigate a scientific concept and then present their findings at an exhibition, as a poster, diorama or other display. This wiki is for an
on-line science fair
, where students from all over the world can contribute their findings. Each student (or group of students) will have a page where they could post their research question, hypothesis, experimental method, data and findings. Students can present their project as a powerpoint, movie, podcast or report on the wiki page.
Why participate in a science fair?
Science fairs give you the opportunity to study a topic that interests you. Projects can be as varied as your interests, such as sports, music, art, rocketry, psychology, and computers. Through your projects, you will discover that science is found in every niche of the universe. Further, science projects allow you to:
Use the scientific method to develop an understanding of controls and variables
Take an open and creative approach to problem solving
Sharpen your writing skills
Gain skills in library use
Learn that a successful outcome is based not on personal opinion but on scientific fact
Develop time management
Develop public speaking skills as they present projects on video or to classmates and judges
Compete in a science fair where you have the opportunity to be recognized for academic achievement
Each project and presentation should include the following steps:
Decide on an investigation and research question or hypothesis.
Check with your teacher - is it achieveable?
Apply for registration with the wiki and an application form.
Submit the application form and a page for your project will be added to the wiki.
Start your investigation with the following steps:
Introduction, Background and Purpose
Methods and Procedure
Results and Observations
Discussion and Conclusion
Acknowledgements, References or Bibliography
If students would prefer to participate in a larger project, rather than investigate their own concept, they can add to the data on the "
" or "
" pages. The
Links to resources
page has a list of websites to get further information about the scientific method, ideas for projects and actual science fairs in the U.S. and Canada. Students will also be able to visit pages and comment on other student's work by adding to the discussion page behind the wiki page. The
page has a rubric of criteria you should read, to make sure you have completed your project to the highest possible standard.
