The Science Fair Notebook
Putting it All Together
The Final Notebook
The SF notebook is a major part of both the science fair and your grade in this class. The 3-ring notebook containing ALL of your SF work, will be the ultimate testament to the amount of hard work you've done this year. The notebook will also go with you to the actual science "fairs" and be read by teachers, peers and the judges.
Below is a list of each "part" in the notebook, as well as a brief summary for each.
Part 3: These should be the final edited and corrected versions, all on separate pages and page numbered.
Results: (1) Observations (2) Data Tables-with explanations (3) Graphs - with explanations
Conclusion: Based on the experimental data collected, analyze the results here. Conclusions are usually at least 2 pages with the original hypothesis restated. What conclusions were discovered through your experimentation?
Appendix: This is your diary of everything that happened during your project. It can be in your composition book, or this separate section - or both.
Each page in the notebook should have IDENTICAL formatting. 1 inch margins, .5 footnotes. 1.5 spacing, 12 pt Times New Roman font. Footnotes are: 10pt Times New Roman font and single spaced.
You may have title pages for the major sections (research paper, results, conclusion, appendix) or these can be larger at the tops of the pages of these specific pages.
Points to Remember:
1. Each section is to be on it's own page.
