Background information?

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.)

Background information?

In my science fair report, it says I have to include background information. What does that mean?

That is the underlying science that you are basing your science experiment on and a summary of practical steps you took to set-up and carry out your experiment.

For example, I did a science project on springs in grade school and would write for the background section, a simple review of Newton's laws and the practical steps required to step my experiment.

Good luck. :D
