I'm very excited at the moment as my 8 year old recently brought home a form to participate in her very first science fair project! How cool is that!!! Science fair projects can be difficult for parents, especially if your child is very excited but needs help picking a project. Coming up with a good science fair project can be stressful, but fortunately there are MANY resources out there to help parents come up with a great science fair project. Here are a few websites to help you get started in your search.

Don't worry too much about finding an original science fair project idea or one that is extremely elaborate if this is your child's first science fair. Simply find a project they are interested in and go with it. Your child will have fun and he/she will learn something. That's the point! Have fun and learn! You can't beat that!
