Project Work Ideas
Consult your teachers - they will have ideas for good projects. Determine the objectives of your project. Obtain background information by reading and by talking with your science teacher. Plan your experimental procedure so that you can observe, measure, and record information. Keep daily records of your work and observations, and repeat your experiments to be sure that the data are reproducible. Later, gather your observations together and analyze the data.
Ask yourself: How do the results relate to the objectives of the project?
