the basics of a science fair board
The Basics of a Science Fair Board
  • Testable ?
  • Hypothesis
  • Materials
  • Procedures
  • Data Collection
  • Tables, Charts, Graphs
  • Science journal or notebook for notes
  • Written Report: 5th grade
  • The project should be based on a ? That the student has. It doesn’t have to be something that is difficult…….Most often times, the best projects are the ones that students just have a curiosity of……such as:
  • I wonder if……….?
  • Scientists will conduct 3 or more trials to validate their hypothesis
  • Record all data
  • Repeat the steps of each trial exactly the way you did on trial 1 for validation
  • Record the data from the trials
Testable ?
  • A testable ? Is one that can be done safely at home or school with minimal supplies or money.
  • Ex. Are boys more accurate than girls when shooting a Nerf gun at a target from different paces… 10 paces, 15 paces, 20 paces
non testable
Non-testable ?
  • A question is non-testable when it is NOT safe or can NOT be done at home or school.
  • Ex. How much does an elephant weigh?
  • An hypothesis is an educated guess on what YOU think the project will accomplish.
  • Example: I think that boys will be more accurate at shooting a Nerf gun at a target because they have more experience.
  • LIST everything you used to conduct your trials. EVERYTHING, if mom helped you, list her as a resource.
              • Pencil
              • Journal
              • Participants
              • Nerf gun
              • White board
              • Markers
              • target
  • Procedures include anything and everything that you did in order to conduct the experiment.
  • DETAILED: 1., 2. 3., 4., 5., 6 etc.
  • Judges should be able to recreate the experiment based on your listed procedures in their head.
data collection based on trials
Data Collection based on trials
  • Some measure of data collection based on three trials for your experiment
  • Such as: tally marks
tables charts or graphs
Tables, charts, or graphs
  • Turn your data collection into a visible table, chart, or graph.
  • Examples:
  • Bar graph
  • Line graph
  • Pie graph
  • Picto-graph
resource documentation
Resource documentation
  • websites.
  • Books
  • Magazine articles
  • interviews
using animals
Using Animals
  • Denton ISD policy: NO animal that is a vertebrate (backbone) may be used for an experiment unless approved by the Denton ISD district science coordinator: Kathy Morrison ext. 040-369-0665
  • MUST also include a veterinarian note stating that the project is NOT harmful to the animal.
science fair boards
Science Fair Boards
  • Regulation size only
  • Nothing larger
  • Nothing smaller
  • Examples: shown at meeting
