ISEF Topic and Research Help
Topic Selection and Purpose : on a 3x5 card, write down your topic
(same as your title) and a brief purpose statement covering what you are doing and why you chose the topic. You will be assigned
your project number in class.
Those working in groups will print out and turn in the group contract
on this date.
Note : When selecting a topic,
make sure it is something that you like! Choose something that interests you as you'll be working with this topic for
a long time! Also, make sure that your topic is something you can do research on. Try some searches on your topic
to see what comes up. Check out the school library page or facts on file to see if something can be found about your
topic. If you can't find that much, you might have a hard time with the research paper.
Group Project Note : Groups
consist of 2 students. Partners can be in the same class or grade but must be taking science class at the same time.
Make sure that you can schedule time to work with this person once a week and that both members of the group are contributing.
Review the group guidelines.
