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.)

Hi! My daughter used the information from the project on mentos and diet coke and the amount of reaction in crushed vs. whole. What are the rules for using the procedure listed when typing her info for her board? thanks!

Your student will need to cite Science Buddies for the project (on the board and in any report/bibliography that is submitted). She is copying and pasting the procedural steps exactly? In most cases, there is a lot of information in the procedure in our project. For her board, she may need to simplify and paraphrase the steps to share an account of the steps she took with her experiment.

She will still need to clearly note that the procedure is from Science Buddies.
