Postby Schoolmom » Sun Apr 06, 2014 12:53 pm

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.
