Once students have their science fair project idea in mind it is time to research the subject. Students will need to research their science fair project idea in order to design & understand the experimentation process. Using keywords in your science question students should ask What, When, Where, How, Why, How & Who questions. Throw out any unimportant or irrelevant questions. Researching the answers to the remaining questions will assist the student with developing a thorough science experiment to test their hypothesis. During the research & experimentation process students will record their progress in a log; documenting their steps & the outcome. This data will be used in writing the experimental science fair paper & creating the tri-fold science fair project display. Both of these elements are combined to encompass the entire science fair presentation.
Depending on the scope of the science fair project students may have different needs for their trifold science project display.
