Art & Design Aspect 1.5 Design a Science Experiment

 

For more information about Science Fairs you can look through the following website: http://www.corsf.ca/.

 

Criteria #1:  Design a science experiment.  Outline your complete procedure in detail.

 

 

 

 

 


1.       Come up with a science question that you are interested in investigating.  You must be able to collect numerical data and put the data in a graph. 

2.      Type up a purpose, make a list of your materials needed, and then outline your procedure.  Once you have this completed show this to your Science teacher.  Once you have your science teacher’s approval you may start your data collection.

 

 

Criteria #2:  Perform a science experiment and collect data

 

 

 

 

 


1.       Following your experimental procedure, carry out your experiment.  Be sure to take all necessary safety precautions.

2.      Collect data.  Use a log book to make note of all observations and data colleted at appropriate time intervals

3.      Be sure to redo experiment at least three times.  As scientists we must REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT!

 

 

 

Criteria #3:  Design and complete at least one table and at least one graph (bar or pie chart) that contains all scientific data

 

 

 


1.       Put your data in a table.  Be sure to use your mean (average) data, not the data from each individual trail.

2.      Use your mean (average) data to make a graph.

3.      Use excel or another graphing software to make your graph.

Criteria #4:  Design an attractive backboard that will display all of your scientific experiment procedure and data

 

 

 

 

 


1.       You can use any material to make a self standing backboard that will stand on top of a table and that you can display all your typed information.  The dimensions of your board must be as follows:

 

2.      You must include the following sections on your backboard:

a.       Purpose (3 – 5sentences long)

b.      Hypothesis (educated guess as to what you think will happen)

c.       Materials (a point form list of all materials used)

d.      Procedure (step by step outline of what you do in your experiment)

e.       Background (information that other scientists have investigated about his topic)

f.       Data (this is where you put your tables and graphs)

g.       Conclusion (what did you find out)

h.       Applications (what can we use this information for?)

i.         Future directions (what future experiments can you do in this topic?)

 

3.      Decorate your background with pictures of your experiment and bright and colourful items to make it appealing to the eye.

Criteria #5:  Present your science experiment to your class.

 

 

 

 


1.       You will do a 10 minute presentation to your science class about your science experiment

2.      You will answer any questions that your classmates may have of you about your experiment to the best of your ability

        You do not need to meet all 5 criteria for any of your choice aspects, but in order to have a completed Science Fair project you do need to complete all required sections

 

        review the 5 criteria prior to starting your science fair project

 

        This is your opportunity to investigate anything that interests you in the areas of science…have fun and be creative!!
