Science Fair Timeline

Welcome to the Buchanan Science Fair Site!

Goal - Make the world a better place

... then SF is for you.

  • 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

High School level science fair projects center around 5 things:

        • Relevance to the world inspiration/discussion/extension ... most important aspect - so what?

        • Unique Question or unique take on an experiment

        • Lots of thought shown in a 100+ page journal

        • Lots of trials - over 100 when appropriate ... only a few trials means you need more time

- Some projects take multiple years - they tend to win and go to INTEL

        • Strong analysis of data ... the more math, the stronger the analysis
