Step 2: Know the Guidelines for your Grade Level
Science Fair is divided into divisions. The two main divisions that affect TEC are the Elementary (3-6) and Junior (Grades 7-8) divisions. Click on the links to review the guidelines for these two divisions.
Step 3: Choose a Project
Students should be aware of all of the different areas and methods of research available to them before starting their research. A good project is one that is focused on a very specific topic using specific methods of research.
