VCS Science Fair - November 17-19, 2015

 
 
Honors Science Fair Information:

You can already start thinking and observing ideas around you now for a science fair project.  All Honor students are required to complete one, but you will still have a choice if you would like to compete in the actual fair (GOLD Path) or put it together in a power-point (GREEN Path).  Either way you still have to complete an independent investigation.  This project will be majority homework through August to November.  Guidance will be given in class along with due dates.  This investigation must be grade level appropriate and testable (controlled experiment).  All projects must have a real application of how it will help mankind - not just a cool experiment (that's for class stuff).  Below you will find steps that will help you start thinking like a scientist. Enjoy:)
