Science Fair Due Dates and Schedule:
Part 1: Due December 2, 2016
Journal- Set up your journal in preparation to record observations throughout all parts of the project. Journals should include; written descriptions, labeled sketches, data tables and graphs, questions, ideas, and problems. Use your journal daily!
Background Information– Why did you choose your question? Where did you get the idea? What real world application does it have? What science did you learn about your project/topic through research? Conduct research from a variety of sources (i.e. experts, research articles, web pages, books). Sources must be cited.
Question- Your inquiry question must have a independent variable (x-axis) and an dependent variable (y-axis).
note: the independent variable is the variable you change in the experiment while the dependent variable is the corresponding measurement.
Hypothesis- This is your “educated”, predicted outcome of the inquiry. You will need to explain your thinking and reasoning in detail. A graph of your hypothesis would be a good visual to go along with your written explanation. Don’t forget the independent variable (x-axis) and an dependent variable (y-axis).
Part 2 due on or before Friday, December 9, 2016
Materials List and Procedure-
Go to the inquiry portal for guidance on this part or any part of the science fair project. Include a step by step list of the procedure you followed in your experiment. Write this section so that someone who doesn’t know anything about your project can follow what you did. Explain as though your audience is intelligent, but uninformed. Using diagrams along with your explanation of the procedure is a good idea.
Part 3 due on or before Friday, January 6, 2017
Conduct Experiment and Record Data and Observations– Record written observations and labeled sketches in your science fair journal as you conduct your experiment. Record your data in a table that is titled and clearly labeled. Graph the data clearly and accurately. In order to provide more reliable data, your experiment should be repeated several times. It is a good idea to do a rough draft in your science journal before making a final draft. You can use the graphing tool on our web site, or a software program such as excel (advanced) to construct your graph.
