Science Fair Project
Part I - RESEARCH
The Background Research section of your Scientific Inquiry Project is a written report, NOT an experiment. You can use text books, library books, periodicals, personal interviews with scientists who are already experts in those fields, internet sites, etc. to gather information about the topic. You will write a report with all the information you already know about the topic. We will spend class periods doing research on the internet and in the library. You will need to finish the report on your own, at home, as homework.
The report should be directly related to the topic of your scientific inquiry project. It should help you form your hypotheses.
You must take notes so that you aren’t tempted to plagiarize.
You will be compiling your Bibliography at the same time you take your notes for the report. If you have forgotten how to write a bibliography or never learned, the following website will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about writing a Bibliography.
Background research will be 2 pages typed, INCLUDING bibliography.
Please use 12 size font
NO italics or fancy fonts
NO reports w/all capital letters. Only use capital letters when needed.
If your investigative question can be further explained using a diagram please include one. It must be drawn and labeled NOT downloaded. The diagram should relate directly to your inquiry project.
This section will give you the information you need to know before writing the Hypothesis. That’s the next step in your Scientific Inquiry Project. When you finish the Background Research, you’re done with the hardest and longest part.
