This is an example of a STEM Fair board for you to use when planning what you need to put on the board. The only difference if you building something rather than a traditional science fair experiment is that you will not have an hypothesis, and your data will be a detailed description of your building experience.
Please make sure to take several pictures of the experiment or build.
In BOTH Cases, make sure there is an explanation of the science behind your project. For example, if you are making slime, explain why slime goes from a liquid into slime—what is happening. If you are making a motor, explain how a motor works. If you have selected a more psychological test, explain the science behind this or any previous research that led you to explore this topic.
If there are any questions, please let me know so I can help you.
