Doing a Science Fair Project

Selecting a Science Project

When deciding on a topic to investigate, ask these questions:

  • What topic interests me? What is a question for which I would like to seek an answer?
  • Is this question too difficult for me to solve?
  • What materials will be needed? Does this problem require sophisticated or expensive materials?
  • Is the problem a safe one?
  • Is it a valid one? Will it be possible to obtain results from this investigation?
  • Is it of significance to today’s society?

In choosing a project title, it is best to state the title in question form, such as "what are," "how is," or to use such phrases as:

  • The Effects of…
  • A Comparative Study of…
  • The Observation of…
  • An Investigation of…
  • A Study of…
