In starting a science project, a student must think of a new concept or idea to make things easier and systematic and that’s why it’s important to make Science Project Blueprints. The idea may be making a new product beneficial to the environment or discovering knowledge. Upon formation of an idea, the student can start setting objectives and do research work.
Blueprints of science projects are simply drafts or proposal of the student’s concept and ideas. This is very important in starting with a Science project because it will guide students. The project proposal is still subject for approval so students need to submit it. If the concept on the draft is good, teachers return the approved blueprints to students. This will formally start the project implementation.
The beginning pages of the blueprint generally contain the project title, objectives, and scientific question. Introduction to the study is also made and placed on the draft. From these items, the rest of the study follows. One will also be able to find the different methods used in the project implementation.
To be able to write all the contents in the proposal, research is done. Students do tremendous effort in reading books, encyclopedias, science magazines, etc. All the things written on the project proposal must be based on facts. Every theory must have scientific explanation behind it to make the project valid. Otherwise, the project will be useless and it may not be approved for passing.
Along with gathering information from books, data gathering is also done. Date gathering may be done inside the school or outside communities. Data gathering is very specific and so one must be careful in doing it. Later on, the data obtained will be itemized when doing the statistics.
Upon completion of the project, the blueprint with added data is again submitted. This time, teachers will check if the project is valid and useful. If a project is found to be relevant and useful, it will be kept. Later on during Science fair, it will be displayed and judges will check it. If it’s found to be the best project among all, the participant will be awarded. The project will have the chance to join the regional, national and international science competitions.
Preparing Science Project Blueprints is very important. It serves as the format of how the project is implemented. It also proves the validity of a Science project because it contains complete information.
