Science Fair Materials

Attention all Chemistry students!

Look below for the schedule of the Avance Science Fair and all the deadlines.  Due to copyright restrictions I can’t publish the science fair write up as an attachment so I’ll give out 1 copy to each group in class.

So far I’ve seen some very cool science projects ideas. Not just the out of book kind but extensions of the science fair to include other interesting and related information.

Here’s  the schedule.

Status Due Date Things to do
Monday 2/10 Choose topic and write project question.
Wed 2/12 Get approval from your teacher.
Fri    2/14 Research your topic and write key words and paragraph.
Wed2/19 Write a hypothesis.Design an experiment; list variables and write procedure.
Fri2/21 List and gather your materials.
