Should team science projects be put on the same board?

 

Here’s a question a student sent me on my contact form today.

Jarrett asks,

“My friend and I are doing a project together. My question is, should we both do our own science fair board or should we only do one?”

There are many types of projects that can enter the science fair and it might depend on your school district which type you are allowed to do. So, it’s a good idea to check with your teacher first.

Individual projects are when each student works on his or her own research idea and creates a unique science fair board.

Team science projects consist of two or three people working on the same subject and doing all research and presenting together. Each person is involved in all parts of the experiment and the team members work on the science fair board together.

Group or class projects are usually only allowed for elementary aged students. This is when four or more students, or a whole class, work on one project together. Each student of the group should be involved in each part of the experiment, but they should keep their own science journal with their own written notes and data. The group together makes one science fair board.

So, unless your teacher says otherwise, you should both work on all parts of the project and make the same science fair board.

Happy experimenting!
