As you work on a project, students will meet all sorts of problems: problems with measuring, designing apparatus, devising good investigations, graphing, making sense of what you have discovered. Students can get help with these problems from friends who are working on other projects, as well as from teachers and this book. In this chapter, students will find Starting Points for projects. These Starting Points have been chosen to give students practice that will help them warm up for a real science fair. Students can choose a Starting Point that interests them the most. This sample chapter also includes the Table of Contents, Be Safe, and Index.
