Science Fair is an opportunity to get your hands in to real science - your experiment.
Just remember that good science is one that can be replicated, 
so take good notes in a journal to keep track of what is being done.

HS Science Fair basics:

 High School science fair centers around 5 things: 
        • 1) Relevance to the world inspiration/discussion/extension - Relevance 
... Most important aspect - so what? 
        • 2) Unique Question - more info
        • 3) Lots of thought shown in a 100+ page journal - more info
        • 4) Lots of trials - over 100 when appropriate ... only a few trials means you need more time
        • 5) Strong analysis of data (more math makes it stronger) - more info
  • Projects are experiments with unknown conclusions when starting
  • Building a new concept is engineering which is Science Fair
  • Demonstrations, research, explanation models, & build from a kit are NOT projects in Science Fair
