It’s time to start thinking of ideas for the science fair this year. The best ideas are when you think of a problem. Whether the problem is around the home, your neighborhood, school, or state; think of a way to solve that problem and test it. These are the types of projects that do very well with the judges.
To get started, look through the pages on How to start a science fair project and explore the internet, professionals, library, etc for more information. Good luck.
Our State Library has a maker space workshop that offers free resources to teachers, students to sign out. Check our links to the right.
