Science Fair 2019 - 2020
Decemenber 3 - 6, 2019
Students in Mrs. Carr's 1st and 6th period classes are required to participate in the Muscogee County School District Science Fair. 8th Grade students may also participate. Science Fair projects that are judged worthy at the school level of competition will proceed to the county or regional level.
Below are important links you will find necessary and helpful on your journey to creating your science fair project:
Georgia Science and Engineering Fair Official Page - this page is the link to all information on requirements for the 2019 - 2020 science fairs.
ISEF Rules and Guidelines - these are the rules followed by middle and high schools, regional fairs, and the state science fair. Parents and students should read the sections that apply to them. (Do not concern yourselves with all the committees. That's my job.)
Grading - 4 grades will be given for the Science Fair project. Planning and Prep, Triboard and Presentation, Abstract, and Overall Experimental Design and Project Completion.
Planning and Prep Grade will be based on having submitted each form successfully by the date due (followed instructions) (50 pts), and proper completion of all elements of the Research Plan including corrections given earlier on the Preliminary Proposal (30 pts), and typing the forms as required (20pts.).
ACMS Forms and Helps:
PowerPoint Presentation from Parent Night Available for reference because no one can remember all this stuff with one presentation!!!!!
Science Research Projects guidelines and information 2019 - 2020 - this serves as a reference to terminology and guides the student in completing the experiment/research.
Official Information and Forms:
1. Form 1: Checklist for Adult Sponsor (1) (Absolutely needs dating and completing prior to any experimentation! Projects that show a date after experimentation has started will be excluded from advancing to the regional fair!)
3. A formal research plan must be prepared according to the direction on student checklist for 1A!
Extra Forms that may be required prior to experimentation:
Required for all projects after experimentation:
An ABSTRACT is a brief description of your experiment and your results. Your abstract is the first item the judges will view and it is the most influential in their decisions. It should be written concisely using scientific terminology. You are limited to 250 words.
You abstract will be graded this way:
A) Purpose of the experiment (Also include your hypothesis) 20 pts.
B) Procedure (Briefly explain steps you used in the experiment) 30 pts
C) Data (Summarized and analyzed) 20 pts.
D) Conclusions (Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect? Did you learn something you did not expect to learn?) 10 pts.
E) Spelling, grammar, punctuation. 10pts.
F) Clear and precise wording. 10 pts.
