Welcome to the Jordan Creek Science Fair Wiki!
An important part of learning science is doing science. Science fairs offer students an opportunity to practice science investigation and invention. Whether the science fair is competitive or not, the project may be the first time that students choose their own science topic and practice being a scientist or engineer.
This site is designed to help students do one of two things:
design and conduct an investigative experiment (investigation)
design and engineer a practical solution to a problem (invention)
This site is designed to provide students with the information needed to have a successful project. The information here has been taken from the "Science Fair Central" site from Discovery Education. Please feel free to reference the Discovery Education site for more detailed information. To access the site click on the link below.
