Science Fair Strategies

Parents and students who need help with science fair projects this year will find a wealth of information at Lansing Library’s “Science Fair Strategies” program.

“Often, people don’t know where to start when working on a science fair project,” says Gail Guzman, Teen Librarian. “This presentation will help students lean not only how to find a project, but how use the library to search for research to complete the project.”

Science Fair Strategies will cover how to find project ideas, what terms to search for when researching your project, how to use reference books and library materials to one’s advantage when searching, and the benefits and pitfalls of using the Internet to research one’s topic. Attendees will be given a “Strategy Guide” with the program’s information to take home as well.

Science Fair Strategies will be on Saturday, November 12 at 10:00 a.m. All students who are working on a science fair project and their parents are welcome to attend. Please call the library at (708) 474-2447 ext. 119 with questions.
