Summary

Filled with creative, classroom-tested science project ideas, this book provides an overview of science fair competitions for elementary school teachers, parents, and others who participate in science fairs as students, judges, and organizers. Every aspect of these competitions is covered, including science fair objectives, motivational techniques, and the role adults should play. Ideas are included for dozens of projects in botany, ecology and environmental science, zoology, and other disciplines. For each project, the author discusses the category in which it can be entered, its objective, procedures for setup and data gathering, and suggestions for displaying the project at a science fair.
