Science Buddies is a non-profit organization focused on developing science enrichment tools for students in grades K-12. For the past seven years, we have been focusing on developing resources for students conducting science fair projects. Working closely with students and teachers, we have developed some very useful online tools that empower students to learn and have fun as they complete their science fair projects. We feel that our online resources fit very well with the resources you have listed on your web site, while still contributing something unique and new to the list. We would like you to consider adding us to your science resources.
Some of our online resources include:
1) Topic Selection Wizard: an online survey that helps students narrow down a scientific area of interest for their science fair project. In addition, the Wizard provides students with a series of sample projects in each of the categories. This is a unique tool that we have developed. We continue to receive positive feedback from parents, students, and teachers who have used this tool, saying that it has been a tremendous help to students at one of the most difficult points of the project –selecting a topic.
2) Science Fair Project Guide: A detailed step by step guide on how to do a science fair project. Starting with a brief introduction to the scientific method, this guide walks students through each step of completing a project, from picking a topic and developing a research plan to setting up the display board. For each step, we offer students a detailed explanation, examples, plus a "grading yourself" section that enables students to self evaluate their work.
3) Ask an Expert Forum: For those students who have tried everything and simply cannot find the answer to a question on their science project, we have developed a free online forum, staffed by volunteer science professionals, where students can get answers to their question
