Step-by-Step Guide for a Virtual Project
Here is a simple guide on what you need to do to have a successful science fair project and virtual project presentation:
- Pick your topic. This is possibly the most difficult part of the project! This process can start with a question such as “What would happen if…..” or “I wonder why ……” and then build your project from this. Check out the links on our Getting Started page for some references to help you with this step.
- Research your topic. Learn more from the internet, the library, your science teacher, and other resources.
- Check the science fair regulations on the ‘Getting Started’page. Pay particular attention to the Safety and Ethics sections in the Project Information , because you may need to discuss your work with FLASF and/or your teacher BEFORE you start your project work.
- Make a time table and plan your experimental work.
- Carry out your experiment or innovation. Keep detailed notes of your experiments and measurements and track your data in a journal or log book.
- Analyse your results. Draw conclusions, and write up your results.
- Register for FLASF and be sure to do this before the deadline!
- Follow the Project Board directions to upload and give information on your project.
- See the Schedule Page for dates and schedule
If you have any questions about your project, ask the student coordinator at students<at>flasf.on.ca. For a complete list of FLASF contacts, see Contact Us
