Advice on Science Fair Projects

Postby Jacobie09 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 5:30 pm

Hey, I'm Jacobie09. I know quite a bit about Science Fair projects and here are a few helpful tips.

1. Find something new, something that is unusual but not ridiculous.

2. Try to break new ground. I know it's hard to do, but this is what the judges on National Level are looking for.

3. Do a lot of work whether it ends up good or not. The judges want to see hard work not an easy-to-do winner.

4. Use spell and gramar [sic] check to catch items such as "Do a lot of work whether it ends up good [sic] or not".

LOL I guess that would also be a good rule to use.
