Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Collier
This interactive workbook takes the student through the process of designing and implementing his or her own science fair project. Unlike many science fair books, it is not a short cut or recipe book of pre-packaged projects. Instead it is an in-depth teaching tool, emphasizing the processes involved in creating a science fair project from scratch. This workbook is an excellent tool for teachers wishing to emphasize the use of the scientific method, as it leads students step-by-step through that process, with examples, exercises, and explanations. Since it is a workbook to be written in, it is not well suited to library use, but homeschoolers and classroom teachers will find it a valuable resource.

    Wow What a Neat Book!

    This book is amazing! Thank you Ms. Bochinski for writing a workbook with exercises to get my students thinking on their own. I have been looking for guide books to recommend to my students on the subject of science fair projects for a number of years and I believe that while there are many good books on the subject, this one rates among my favorite. If you are new to the world of science fair projects, this book is a neat little instruction book that gives students creative exercises to try to develop their own science fair project AND, what's great is that before you know it, if you follow all of these exercises, you will have done your project from start to finish and surprise, surprise, it's probably going to be a one-of-a-kind project which might even earn an award and might even be fun....who would've thought!
