In order to win at the science fair, go to the experts--kids who have already taken the prize. These blue-ribbon science experiments are based on those from real students, and they're smart, imaginative, fun to do, and sure to be a hit with the judges! Youngsters will find over 50 exciting and challenging choices in all the major categories: biology, physical science, and chemistry. Using easily found materials, they'll test such things as whether people who play video games have a different reaction time than those who don't, or whether sound travels better underwater than through air. Easier projects come first, more difficult ones after, and many include a section called "Take a Closer Look" with research suggestions and additional information. Plus, an introduction covers exactly what a science fair is, typical rules and regulations, and tips on display and presentation. Your child is sure to win!

"This excellent little book could be of interest to all grade levels, from kindergarten through high school. Whether one is doing a science fair project or just looking for something to lift a class out of the dull and mundane, the book has suggestions that would help...An added benefit is that many of the suggested projects are open-ended and would lead to further investigation. A potential jumping-off place for the evaluation of advertisements and critical thinking, this book is a 'must have' for any school."--Science Books & Films. "A welcome addition to science-fair literature."--School Library Journal.
