Fall 2008 Website

Producer: Science Buddies
Science Buddies offers free science fair project ideas, answers, and tools for "serious students." While the site is visually simple, it’s super-easy to navigate and to quickly find the information you want.

Looking for an idea for a science fair project? Science Buddies has 700 to get you started, and even has a Topic Selection Wizard to help you narrow them down to one that’s right for your student. Additional Student Resources include a step-by-step guide to finishing a science fair project, an "Ask an Expert" online bulletin board staffed by volunteer scientists and top high school students, and tips and techniques to prepare for advanced science competitions.

Teachers can take advantage of resources to help plan, manage, and evaluate a science fair or a science project in the classroom, and even request a free color poster providing an overview of the steps of the scientific method. For further motivation and inspiration, the site features Science Buddies in Action to showcase real kids’ success stories using Science Buddies materials.
