"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 5 Up. In recent years, there have been a handful of books offering intelligent advice on how to participate in a science fair. This complete revision of a 1986 title is one of them. The author provides sage advice on how to select a project, conduct the research, and present the results. A good list of dos and don'ts includes a nice discussion of what works as a project topic and what doesn't. One table lists addresses for accessing indexes to find information on the Web. Short vignettes of how students tackled real science fair projects illustrate the key points. The accounts of how students dealt with bad data, results that contradicted their original hypothesis, and experimental results that raised more questions than they answered are particularly helpful. Black-and-white photographs of the students with their presentations (all new to this edition) put a human face on each story. The author also provides a good list of science supply companies.?Alan Newman, American Chemical Society, Washington, DC
