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!
