Honors - Science Fair....Question?  Where to start?? Great ideas are located in news articles.  Look below for some interesting topics.  Read and finds something that interests you that could be formed into a controlled experiment (that you can do).  Also, observe some previous projects to stimulate ideas - locate the PDF below.  Remember it must have a real application of how to help mankind - not just a cool experiment (we do those in class:).  Students will all be required to complete a science fair project appropriate for their grade level if they are in an Advanced/Honors Science course.  However, they are allowed to pick a path or depending on the topic their teacher will select their path GREEN or GOLD.  GREEN path will complete their investigation with a power-point and present to their teacher.  GREEN path will complete their investigation with a notebook, tri-board, and present to judges from the community.  The GOLD path will require more comittment from the students, but will also provide many great rewards.  Please view the checklist/due date PDF below for both paths.
