My middle school students have been working on their science fair projects for the last couple weeks and we’ve both been utilizing the Science Buddies website. It provides ideas for teachers and students and teachers alike.
– For teachers, there is a great downloads section where you can get rubrics and planning guides for an entire science fair. You can even order a free poster about the scientific process (I ordered mine about a month ago, but it hasn’t arrived yet).
– For students, there is an online survey they can take that will provide several project ideas for areas they may be interested in. There is also a large repository of project ideas divided into various categories.
