Overview

Want a winning science fair project that isn't a lot of work? Here are actual projects to use (with adaptations for different grade levels). Experiment and see whether family members have fingerprint characteristics in common, what the effects of calcium on bone strength are, how light affects leaves, and much more. Here are the few other choices that could earn you a blue ribbon!
* Scents of Smell: Some aromas say they'll put you in a certain mood. But, do they?
* The Yolks on You!: Demonstrate the power of osmosis--using the humble egg.
* The Iceman Cometh: You've skated on icy ponds--but why can't you ever skate on the ocean? Find out how salt lowers the freezing temperature.
You'll get help in finding an idea, for organizing and displaying the work, and in figuring out just what judges are looking for; plus checklists and suggestions for doing research, all of which will speed you on your way!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
For many children and their parents, science fair projects can introduce real angst. All too often the science fair project is left to the last minute, creating stress. This colorfully illustrated little book provides teachers, parents and children with a wide-range of potential science projects. The first part of the book addresses the background preparation and activities necessary to successfully complete a thoughtful science project. Concepts such as scientific method, research design, experimentation and data collection are all covered in a readable manner. The second section presents twenty-six potential experiments. Each experiment is described, including the materials and methods necessary to accomplish it both at an elementary and middle school level. Well-written and cleverly presented, this book is an excellent teaching and reference tool for science education. It will be helpful to many young students and should find a useful place in both family and classroom libraries. 2001, Sterling, $12.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
