Just as there are methods for doing science, there are methods for planning an award-winning science project. Win the blue ribbon at the science fair through proper planning.

Step 1: Select a good topic
Select a topic that you personally find interesting. Make sure that the project will be easy and fun to carry out.

Choose a well-defined topic. Otherwise, the project may become overwhelming.

Step 2: Do research
Learn as much about the topic as you can. Look for equations and concepts that will explain your results.

Step 3: Develop a research plan
Develop a research plan. The plan should describe the purpose of the experiment, the independent variables, your hypothesis, how you will conduct the experiment, and how you will evaluate the data.

Step 4: Assemble your materials
Assemble everything you will need, including a research notebook.

Step 5: Perform the experiment
Perform the experiment. Take thorough notes about what you observe, and then organize your notes and analyze your data.

If you run into difficulties, be persistent until you find a solution. This will impress the judges.

Step 6: Prepare a summary report and display
Prepare a detailed report, summarizing your experiment. Create an eye-catching display for the science fair, and try to be modest when you accept your award.
