Through an engaging video presentation, learners explore critical topics necessary for successful participation in science fairs. The course begins with an overview of research integrity, where learners explore approaches for the appropriate crediting of work and how to collect and manage data, while also understanding elements of research misconduct. The course then presents the International Science and Engineering Fair rules, responsibilities of researchers, and an overview of the scientific method. Moving on from the rules, learners then review the forms often required for science fairs. Select topics important in research are also covered as part of this course, including environmental stewardship, animal care, human subjects research, and potentially hazardous biological agents.
