Have a science fair coming up?
Brad, over at The SkepDad Blog, has a post about the “Five Key Elements of a Science Fair Project.” They are great suggestions for anyone looking to participate in a science fair. However, even if you aren’t in need of a science fair project, the post is a good, basic summary of the scientific method that can really be used anytime. I’m guessing some of you teen skepchicks are babysitters, and one thing I love to do when I babysit is conduct some basic science experiments with the kids (yes, I am a big geek). It’s a lot of fun, gets the kids interested in science, AND usually makes the parents happy (as long as you clean up!). Anyway, Dr. FreeRide, over at Adventures in Ethics and Science also tends to have good suggestions for science experiments, so if you are looking for ideas check out her weekly Friday Sprog Blogs.
