How I Use It
What a great way for students to figure out a topic for a science project! The Topic Selection Wizard does a nice job of surveying student interests and recommending possible project topics. Students have plenty of choices and can easily print pages with background information, procedures, materials, etc. This can help ensure that students complete their project successfully.
My Take
This site is an excellent way for students to begin a science project and stay organized at every stage of the process. In addition to project information, students can also find out how others did with similar projects through reviews and pictures. By joining the Science Buddies community, students can vote on projects submitted by other members, review a project that they've done, and participate in other opportunities to benefit the site. This can help students see how their input is valued and help make the site better in the future for themselves and others.
