Science Fair season is quickly approaching and helping your students prepare for it can be a huge undertaking. Since so much of the project is done outside of the classroom, it is important to give students and parents resources that will help them succeed. We have compiled a list of some great science fair project websites that help you do just that. Feel free to print out this article and send it home with your students to get them on the road to science fair project success.

The neat thing about this website is that they walk you through the experiments step-by-step. The ability to print the experiment out is also a bonus for this site. One drawback is that it is extremely advertisement heavy.
Have you ever found a science fair project idea that was too difficult? Well, at Science Buddies, there is a convenient button at the top of each experiment that allows you to view easier or harder ideas. It also gives you a grade range where the experiment would be appropriate. There are ideas for every grade and they offer the ability to print the experiment or email it.
