Science Fair Research Help

When you are doing research for your science fair project, make sure your sources are reliable.  Books, encyclopedias and other sources are available at the school media center. If you need help, please don't hesitate to ask Mrs. K. or Mrs. Howald.

 

Online resources can be tricky.  Verify information from the internet before using it in a project.  Using Wikipedia is very strongly discouraged since it is an editable website.  The facts on the site can be changed at any time, so it cannot be counted as a reliable source.

 

Parents, please monitor your children when they are online. Many innocent searches can result in finding inappropriate or inaccurate materials.
