Projects must be in place at Dandridge
Elementary School Library by 2:00 on the
day of the fair.
Each school may send one representative
for each fifth grade classroom. Students
may come from any of the classrooms.
Projects will be judged between 2:00 p.m.
and 4:00 p.m.

Students will be present at their project by
4:00 to talk to the judges about their
project.
Students participating in the county-wide
fair will be treated to a “Pizza Party”.
Awards ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m.
All projects MUST be removed from the area
immediately following the ceremony.
On the NEW site,
select Departments,
the Curriculum, then
Science/STEM, then
Science Fair
 Recognize the need for active student
involvement.
 Respect student ideas and help steer
them in the correct direction.
 Praise and encourage students.
 Advise students of resources available.

A Science Fair project is an investigation –
not a demonstration. There is a question
If you have a demonstration in mind,
remember to alter the thought process to
asking a question: What is in _______? Why
does this happen? Can I do this a better
way? How does temperature change the
behavior?

The independent variable is the one that is
changed by the scientist. In an experiment
there is only one independent variable.
The dependent variable changes in
response to the change the scientist.
There should be a control. No experimental
treatment is applied.
Constants are conditions that remain the
same for all parts of the experiment, such
as measuring the water, always by a
window, same position in the room, etc.
Arrange information so that it is easy to read and flows in a logical
order.
Top to bottom and left to right.
No living or dead organisms in the display (plants or animals).

CD player & a CD (low drain device)
Three identical flashlights (medium drain
device)
Camera flash (high drain device)
AA size Duracell and Energizer batteries
AA size of a "heavy-duty" (non-alkaline)
battery (I used Panasonic)
Voltmeter & a AA battery holder
Kitchen timer

Number each battery so you can tell them apart.
Measure each battery's voltage by using the voltmeter.
Put the same battery into one of the devices and turn it on.
Let the device run for thirty minutes before measuring its
voltage again. (Record the voltage in a table every time it is
measured.)
Repeat #4 until the battery is at 0.9 volts or until the device
stops.
Do steps 1–5 again, three trials for each brand of battery in
each experimental group.
For the camera flash push the flash button every 30 seconds
and measure the voltage every 5 minutes.
For the flashlights rotate each battery brand so each one has
a turn in each flashlight.
For the CD player repeat the same song at the same volume
throughout the tests.
