Default High School Science Fair Projects

Take a look at some of our high school science fair projects. Go to [url]http://www.all-science-fair-projects.com/science_fair_projects.php?s_terms=project&type=0&s _difficulty=3&hidden=1&s_category=&recipe_articles Order=st_diff&recipe_articlesDir=ASC[/url]

- and compare the complexity of your project against those listed.

More importantly, it's the thought process and the quality of your analysis that matters. You need to think through the procedures of your experiment, and then follow it methodically, whilst recording your findings/results objectively.

It doesn't really matter whether your topic sounds/looks sophisticated/fancy. What matters is that you are thorough and objective - and that the hypothesis is relevant to the pursuit of scientific knowledge.

I had a question on that to.

Because im doing stuff withLiquid and solid fuel rockets for my science fair{2006}, if it seems very complicated can i be thrown out. I mean i already started on mine, and it isnt due untill January. School has not even started for me.

And I want mine to be perfect, I want to get as far as I can.... with hopes of winning. But im not sure if they can just ignore it due to the way it is set.

Thanks for any answer

Hmm, you really shouldn't have a problem - as long as you've read the rules (and of course, comply with the rules).

Again, the complexity of your project will affect the judges' opinions - but to some extent only. What's more important is whether you are answering a useful question in the first place and secondly, demonstrate the scientific method through your project. The judges will know this by looking at your procedure (you must document carefully the steps that you took to build the rocket) and your experiment results (you must document carefully the different results that you achieve with different fuels). There's no such thing as a perfect project. However, the process can be perfected... which is what you should try to achieve.

You probably already know all about it - but you can checkout the [URL=http://www.all-science-fair-projects.com/science_fair_projects_coach/page3.html]Science Project Coach[/URL] section for a refresher on the scientific method.

As long as you're sure and proud of your work and u think you've put in your 100%, the rest doesn't matter. Even if you don't win, the exposure which you get will help later on in life. All the best to both of you. I hope you win.

Head of the head of the family.

That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.
