There Are So Many Choices For Science Fair Projects

Science fairs are a tradition at many schools. The goal is to get kids thinking in new ways and not just have mom and dad put something together for them. By picking a project that is within the child’s capabilities, the whole family can have a great experience.

Projects are usually shown off at the science fair with some kind of display or poster. Sometimes the display is the whole project, while other times it shows the result of an actual experiment. Review the rules of your fair to determine which type of project to do.

Display Project Ideas
