Science Fair Project Ideas, Answers, & Tools

Science Fair Project Ideas, Answers, & Tools | HCS Science | Scoop.it

Science Buddies mission is to help students from all walks of life to build their literacy in science and technology so they can become productive and engaged citizens in the 21st century. We have created personalized learning tools, over 15,000 pages of scientist-developed subject matter (including experiments based on the latest academic research), and an online community of science professionals who volunteer to advise students. We also provide resources to support parents and teachers as they guide students doing hands-on science projects. Representing much more than a website, Science Buddies quickly and efficiently matches students with the information that will hold their interest and answer their questions. We provide a bridge between scientists and students, giving students access to current scientific research and simultaneously giving scientists a way to reach out to young people interested in their fields.

Taking inspiration from the news, from the frontlines of university research, and from kids themselves, our staff scientists publish new content weekly. They often collaborate with experts at high tech companies, government labs and agencies (like NOAA and NASA) and top universities. Science Buddies provides fun, intellectually-stimulating and cutting-edge science education resources such as:

An online library of 1000+ Project Ideas, which are detailed scientist-authored outlines that help students create a project in any of 30 different fields of science and engineeringThe Topic Selection Wizard tool to help students find a project idea that perfectly matches their unique interestsThe Project Guide is an online encyclopedia for how to do science research and science fair projects. It includes step-by-step guidance, actual sample assignments, photos of science fair projects, tips for success, and self-grading checklists for students. Also includes tools, techniques, and reference information such as safety guidelines and an Engineering Design Project Guide.A robust Teacher Resources area with a curriculum for teaching the scientific method, printable classroom handouts, grading rubrics, and enrichment toolsThe Ask an Expert online advice forum where scientists and engineers guide students who are doing science and engineering projectsCareer Information includes 100+ Career Profiles to inform students about science, technology, engineering, and math careers. Career Profiles are tied into our library of Project Ideas so students can easily see how the science in their project is used in real-world careers.Via the Summer Science Fellows Program, a small group of recent graduates (and Intel ISEF participants) join Science Buddies to work on specialized projects during summer months.


HCS Learning Commons's insight:

This science website is your best choice for gleaning science fair ideas, careers in science and wonderful teaching resources for every science teacher.  The Ask an Expert is a great resource too!  *****
