Team
Projects will be team projects if completed as a team, no matter what category area
they fall in from above.
Two or Three Teammates may work together.
How Do I Develop My Idea into
an Experiment?
• After you have learned
(researched) everything
you can about your
project idea, try to think
of a way to express your
question as a statement
that describes what you
think will happen. I
believe…
• This is your hypothesis!
Keeping a Log Book
• One of your most valuable pieces
of work resulting from your
science fair project will be your
log book or journal.
• This is a day by day record of
what you do.
• Be sure to include dates,
observations and your thoughts in
each entry.
Sharing Your Project
• Your science fair project is
an opportunity for you to
share the results of your
experiment with classmates,
adults, and other people
interested in your research.
• Organize your science fair
board in a logical way.
Check carefully for spelling
and grammar errors. Be
sure to include graphs,
charts and pictures.
