Science Fair


St. Partrick School Science Fair is February 28, 2018. Projects need to be to school that day by 3 pm for judging



Science Fair

I have been pricing science fair display boards. Hobby Lobby is the cheapest ($4.99) and carries colored display boards.. Display boards are also available in black or white at Staples, but are almost double the price at $9.99.
Pat Catan's at the Frenchtown Mall also has science display boards. Display board size is 45 inches tall and 54 inches across when laid flat. The side flaps are 12 inches across and the center section 30 inches across to equal the 54 inches. These are the measurements of the science fair display boards at Hobby Lobby and Staples.
*NO Header pieces for a title may be added to the top of the board.

Journals should have daily items done with science project recorded including work done at school, all procedures, materials, etc. while doing experiment, and results recorded in the journal. Make sure you include the research topics we went over in school and the description of any work you did on the research ( I found an article, I began the rough draft) The important thing is to add detail to what you do! You should also proofread prior to my journal check.

Graphing Your Results

  • Review your data. Try to look at the results of your experiment with a critical eye. Ask yourself these questions:
    • Is it complete, or did you forget something?
    • Do you need to collect more data?
    • Did you make any mistakes?
  • Calculate an average for the different trials of your experiment, if appropriate.
  • Make sure to clearly label all tables and graphs. Include the units of measurement(volts, inches, grams, etc.).
  • Place your independent variable on the x-axis of your graph and the dependent variable on the y-axis. (these headingd are from your variables and controls work sheets completed in class prior to your experiment)

Create a graph link Use the link to create a graph of your results. I will be assisiting you at school with this-which type of graph works best for your data. Printers at school are black and white. If you would like to have a color copy of your graph send in a flash drive and we can save the graph for you to print at home on your color printer or at Staples.
