Science can be real simple and is actually only about understanding the world you live in! Science certainly does not need to be revolved around complicated formulas, heavy textbooks and geeky guys in white lab coats with thick glasses. Doing science projects are all about testing and getting results, even if you get a surprising result than you might not have expected. Children approach a particular topic, having their questions and interests as a starting point, in an attempt to deal with specific problems and/or every day instances, through a scientific investigation for deeper knowledge and understanding.
They develop projects collaborating with each other in pairs or small groups, whereas teachers facilitate investigations and activities and usually facilitate the availability of a variety of materials for children to work with.
Science fairs are a wonderful way to get excited about learning, but they require a lot of hard work.
