Picking the right Parts

AFTER you've done your research and concluded your experiments, it is time to prepare for the science fair. Ask specific questions about preparing for a science fair, including how to set up your display board, how to prepare a presentation, etc. (Please post questions about selecting a project or conducting your experiment by posting in the appropriate "area of science" forum.)

Picking the right Parts

I can't figure out which parts to include. I've found a lot of information and I'm just now starting my report. :?

For us to effectively help, please provide some detail about your project and some specific questions you may have. For starters:

- I see your topic is on Ants, but what specifically about ants is your research on?
- What is/was your hypothosis, findings, experiment proceedures?
- What are all the "parts" you are talking about?
- Are you asking about including them in the final report or on a display? I'm assuming you are presenting at a science fair, given the forum you've posted to.
- Anything else that may help us understand your question/needs.

In the mean time, some great information on how to formulate, display and convey your research can be found in the Science Fair Project Guide @ the following link:

Please post back here with further questions.
I hope this helps.
