My Project

Looking for inspiration and a step by step guide on completing the Science Fair? You've come to the right place. 

How to do research, find a good question, plan your time, record your progress, and understand safety.

How to run an experiment that means something.

Take your project and get it ready to show others.

Things to manage when your project is selected to go to the Fair. 

Congratulations! Now to get ready for the Prizegiving.

Science helps find answers to questions we have about the physical world around us. Technology uses those discoveries to solve problems and improve lives. Its been said "Science and engineering research has become the most powerful force for change in our society," and we agree. The Fair is about encouraging young people towards problem solving and creative discovery. This builds both the students abilities and our countries responsiveness to a wide variety of future challenges. Solutions to pressing problems will continue to emerge in unexpected ways from new knowledge. But they don't happen by themselves, it takes some work!
