Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-While most science-fair books focus on how to survive the event, this revision of the author's 1991 title provides sound advice on how to put together a first-rate project. The book also contains up-to-date rules on science and engineering fairs. Chapters describe how to plan experiments, present data, and prepare for the science-fair judging. An especially useful addition is a chapter that details the evolution of a winning project from an inspired idea to the final presentation. The narrative covers a four-year period, illustrating the work and perseverance that often goes into a successful project. The majority of the book presents in some detail 50 new award-winning projects, primarily aimed at high school students. This is not an idea list of projects since several require sophisticated equipment or university contacts. Rather, it serves as a model of what constitutes the best. Black-and-white photographs of the projects accompany the text. Extensive lists of science supply companies and science-fair competitions are appended. There is also an appendix of 400 project ideas that probably is of lesser value. A great handbook for those students ready to go the extra distance.-Alan Newman, American Chemical Society, Washington, DC
