Project Categories

Choose from a variety of categories for your poster. Parental support and assistance are essential to your child’s success. A general rule of thumb to go by is: 

  • 4th and 5th graders should be doing almost the entire science project by themselves. 

  • 2nd and 3rd graders should be able to do many parts. 

  • Kindergarteners and 1st graders will need help for most of the project. 

Kindergarten & 1st Grade

You will collect and organize something of interest, answering questions related to observations made while exploring your world. Examples: What kinds of insects can be found in my backyard? What types of tree leaves can be found on my street? 

Kindergarten through 5th grade

You will conduct an experiment to find the answer to your question/problem. Using The Scientific Method will take you through the correct process of asking a question, doing some preliminary research, making a hypothesis (your best guess at how it will turn out), planning and conducting your experiment, and analyzing your results.

3rd through 5th grade

Everyone is an engineer! You will use science, math, and creativity to dream up and design an object or a process to solve a real life problem. Using The Engineering Design Process will take you through all the necessary steps: asking a question, brainstorming, planning, creating, testing, and making it even better.

Kindergarten through 5th grade

Someone has already found the answer to your question/problem, and you will look for their answer/solution by reading books, talking to experts, and gathering information from other sources such as schools and public libraries. Your display board will have drawings, photographs, charts, graphs, dioramas, etc. Examples: How does a solar cell work? How does a light bulb operate? How do clouds form?

Kindergarten through 5th Grade

Describe an environmental issue in your community. Write a persuasive essay or speech and to convince others the problem that needs to be solved. Make a timeline and point out what is needed in each step. Use pictures and colors along with your essay to persuade the community with your brilliant innovation.

3rd through 5th grade

You can select one device to analyze and take apart ie. toaster, can openers, scale, sun glasses, etc. Please get permission from your parents. Using the Purpose method, students need to explain how this device works and how it was invented. Use pictures, diagrams, and words to describe how each part is attached to the device. Identify the various engineers, scientists, and artists needed to design and produce the device.
