    Science Fair Topic Selection Worksheet STEP 1: Brainstorming List—make a list of 5 hobbies, interests, passions or curiosities. These items will guide your science fair topic selection research. STEP 2: review the following science fair topic guidelines  If you use science fair books or websites, you might find a fabulous project; however, it might be too

    complex or too simple for our science fair. Feel free to get ideas that can be modified to fit within our timeline, ability to gather the needed supplies and your ability level.

     Make sure to select a project that is interesting to you! Don't select a project idea simply because it's supposed to be really easy or "super scientific."

     Remember the project guidelines: stay away from projects with plants, tobacco, alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, projects that aren't "testable" or "measurable," projects that have fireballs, bombs (even chemical bombs) or use guns.

     If you select a project that involves people, you need to get a series of permissions--plan ahead for this!

    STEP 3: Find the science fair links on science fair website. Click on the link for “Science Buddies Idea Generator” and complete the short survey of your interests. [http://goo.gl/qMytQ]  List the title of one of the projects that was generated:

    ___________________________________________________ o Is this project something that you would be interested in? Explain your reasoning:

    o What could you measure about this experiment?

    o What are 2-3 materials you would need for this experiment?

    o Bookmark the projects that look interesting to you [on a chromebook: Ctrl+D]  Find one more project idea from this website that would interest you and answer the

    questions about it: o Project title: ___________________________________________________________________________ o Is this project something that you would be interested in? Explain why:

    o What could you measure about this experiment?

    o Could you really do this experiment (think about--is it too complex, would you have a hard time gathering materials)?

    o Bookmark the projects that look interesting to you [on a chromebook: Ctrl+D]

    STEP 4: Return to science fair website and click on the “Science Fair Central Idea Finder” link [http://goo.gl/TXivj]  Click on an area of science that you find interesting (Life, Earth, Physical)  Click on a specific area of that science your find interesting (in red)  Explore the options provided and fill in the data table for THREE project ideas that you find

    interesting (in any science area or topic).  Bookmark any projects that look interesting to you [on a chromebook: Ctrl+D]

    Testable Question What is Tested? What Stays the Same?

    Data Collected

    Step 5: Narrow your options down to two different project ideas (one you are interested in and a back-up). Fill in the table below to show your thought-process as you begin with a broad concept and narrow it down to produce a research question.
