Experiment instructions

Postby gloria9 » Wed Dec 27, 2017 6:47 pm

I am a 5th grade science teacher. Our school has a science fair every other year. I noticed that the various experiments have abstracts and objectives, but the experimental procedure is missing. Have they been removed? I was hoping to show my students an example and explain to them how they must create their own experimental procedure. Are there any with the e.p.? :?: :D

Hello Gloria,

Some of the more advanced projects don't have a section on experimental procedures, but many others certainly do.

Here's one example: ... magnifying

Here a link to the science buddies project guide: ... ience-fair

This might also be useful for your students to read.

I hope this helps, but be sure to let us know if you have more questions!

Hi Gloria,

To clarify a little further, anything with an asterisk after the title is an "Abbreviated Project Idea" that only has an abstract but not a full procedure, like this: ... -cable-car

However, as MadelineB pointed out, the majority of our projects include a procedure. Make sure you click on the "Procedure" tab at the top of the page to see it (if you haven't been to our site in a long time, it used to be one giant page, but now they're broken up into tabs): ... #procedure

Hope that helps!
