Science Fair Parent Letter Signed and Returned to Mr. Iwu


Science Fair Project Packet

Friday, January 31st and Monday, February 3rd
Over the next two days in class you will be given time to start working on your science fair project. The first thing you need to do is choose a topic and let Mr. Iwu know so she can approve it in class. Once you have your topic then you can start working in class. Even if you have not started your project at home, you can start making headlines to organize your board. All of the words below (in capital letters) are headings you will need for your science fair board. When you type your headings they should be in at least 72 pt. font. You can also start to type out your introduction, problem, hypothesis, procedure, materials list, and title. Your paragraphs should be in at least a 36 pt. font.

INTRODUCTION- A little bit about yourself and the project.

PROBLEM- Why did you choose your project? What is interesting to you about your project?

HYPOTHESIS- What do you think is going to happen in your project? (Remember: Your hypothesis is your BEST guess... It does NOT have to be correct.)

MATERIALS- List of things that you are going to need for your project.

PROCEDURES- Step-by-step directions about how to complete your project. (Remember: This should be a numbered list telling someone exactly how to replicate your project if they wanted to do the exact same thing as you.)


TITLE- Give your project a title that is interesting.

PHOTOGRAPHS- You will need to take pictures during your project or draw the pictures to be included on your board. You must include pictures.

DATA- Table, chart, and/or graph

RESULTS- What happened in your project? Write this in a paragraph.

CONCLUSION- Did you learn anything from your project? Was your hypothesis correct? Would you do anything different next time?

BIBLIOGRAPHY- Where did you get your information?
