How to Do Successful Science Fair Projects
Science kits or a sophisticated educational science toys can be useful in order to learn how a scientific instrument or equipment works. These can be alternately deconstructed and reconstructed until you thoroughly understand how they function. Then the instrument or equipment may be significantly modified so the improved version can be
submitted as your project at the science fair.
Consider a science kit which primarily consists of computer software. The software may include computer simulation programs, statistical programs or other types of scientific and mathematical programs. Also consider developing computer games such as chess, checkers or a complex card game, e.g., bridge or pinochle.
Science kits may be used for any of the five types of science projects, namely, Original Research to discover scientific principles, Demonstration of a scientific principle, Investigation of a scientific topic, Collection of scientific items, Model to illustrate a scientific principle.
NOTE: You are prohibited from submitting a science kit, exactly as purchased, for your science project. Your work must be original.
