2011-2012 TIMELINE
Science fair forms:  Before starting any of these forms you need to generate some ideas for a science fair project.  Run these across your teachers to see if they will work. Next on a Word document you will need to have the following:


Provide a typed research plan and attach to Research Plan Form (1A).

The research plan is to include the following:

A. Question being addressed

B.Hypothesis/Problem/Engineering Goals

C. Description in DETAIL of method or procedures (including chemical concentrations and drug dosages)
For human research, include survey or questionnaires if used, and critically evaluate the risk. See instructions for human research on p. 12 of the Rules. For vertebrate animal research, you must briefly discuss POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVES and present a detailed justification for use of vertebrate animals. See instructions on p. 15 of the International Rules.

D. Bibliography

List at least five major references (e.g., science journal articles, books, internet sites) from your library research. If you plan to use vertebrate animals, give an additional animal care reference.

(THESE NEED TO BE IN AN ACCEPTABLE FORM (ie. not just a website) See your English teachers for help with this)
