I have sponsored over a thousand projects and taken middle school students as far as the National Level in Science Fair (Broadcom Masters, Lemelson Award, 2019).

THIS is the guide I give my students and their parents. Directions- accurate and to the point, written at a middle school level. What to expect, things to think about, tips, hints, and pep talks.

Rather than answering a bagillion questions each year, have your students check the guide first! It covers all of the questions that I get every year and gives pointers on choosing a project, researching, writing a hypothesis, performing and controlling an experiment, keeping a raw data notebook, analyzing data, writing a conclusion and an abstract, putting together a board, presenting to judges, answering questions, and being a good sport. This overview is written at a level that makes SENSE to middle school students. It is to the point, but includes all the information you want your students to understand. Read it to them in class. Provide a copy for every parent.

They will THANK you for it! They thank me every year!

Also included: Grading Rubric, Science Fair Contract, How to Write a Science Fair Research Paper, Judges' Scoring Rubric, Judges' Comment Sheet.

EVERYTHING is editable! Please check out the preview!
