Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What general area should you pursue for a science fair competition?

Something that you are interested in

What your parents tell you to do

Whatever is easiest

2. Why is using a hot topic often worthwhile?

You can then often copy someone else's project

Judges only select hot topics as winners

People are usually curious about such a topic

3. Why do you need to be practical about selecting your project topic?

You don't have to be practical, if your parents are rich and will give you the money

You want to select something that is possible to complete

You need to be cautious, because science can be dangerous

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Science Projects and Experiments. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
