Science Projects and Experiments

by Ron Kurtus (updated 25 March 2023)

A science project consists of performing an experiment, testing a theory or demonstrating a principle, and then following it up with a report and presentation.

Many students—and even scientists—would like to succeed in doing a science project, but there are often are challenges and obstacles in the way to reaching that goal. Science projects require that you understand scientific methodology. You need to have any ideas of where to start in developing a project. And finally—if entering in a competition—you need the skills to present your project in a way that will improve your chances of winning.

The purpose of these lessons is to give you a start at improving your skills in science projects, as well as to give you tips performing experiments.
