Is this considered plagiarism?

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.)

Is it considered plagiarism if one further investigates on a study by another individual?
like using their research as the basis of my research
I want to use a technique that another used and apply it to my project.

Hi,
You can use someone else's work as a reference for your own work. You just have to make sure you cite their work when you are presenting yours.
Hope this helps!
