Projects that have any of these items present will not be allowed into the building.

• Science projects follow the Scientific Method, found in our Student Handbook.

• Your board should be a visual representation of this method.

• Be sure to organize your board how best fits your project – the above is a simple example

 

• Engineering projects follow the Engineering Process, found in our Student Handbook.
