Updated on April 13, 2015

Introduction

The All Science Directory has been designed for students, educators and parents. Here you will find information about resources, tips and directions for science fair projects, science activities and science news. Discover how you can improve your science grade and how to improve your chances of getting into college.

Science Fair Projects - the Pros and Cons

Science fair projects can be a compulsory part of a middle school science program, however, sometimes they are offered as an optional activity. Whenever you get the chance to enter a science competition during your middle school and high school education it is a good idea to enter. These competitions not only help you to develop your science skills, but they also provide you with unique opportunities to interact with people in various science fields and careers. This interaction can lead to scholarships, prizes and to future opportunities for entering special science programs at university or even opportunities for employment.

While science fair projects do offer a number of advantages, they do come with some drawbacks. The biggest drawback is that they require you to volunteer your time and resources. In order to win a science fair you need to invest a great deal of your time and a little bit of money. This added responsibility can make meeting your other school, work and family responsibilities more difficult to do. However, in the end, the extra trouble is worth it.

Tips for Doing Well in Science Class

Getting a good grade in your science class can be a challenge. While some students find science easy to comprehend and excel in, others have a hard time with it. If you need a little extra help doing well in your science class then these tips will help.

1. Take notes as you read.

2. Take notes of class lecture or record classroom lectures on a digital recorder.

3. Complete the supplemental activities at the end of each chapter.

4. Take advantage of online resources that cover the concepts you are studying.

5. Read news and journal articles on the science concepts that you are studying

6. Ask questions in class.

7. Work with a study partner who understands the material.

8. Complete extra credit projects when they are offered.

Would You Like a Career in Science?

While it may seem a little premature to start thinking about what you want to do for a career when you are in middle school, it is actually the perfect time to start thinking about it. This is because you will start laying tracks for your career choice in high school. If you do not know what you would like to be when you grow up consider asking yourself these questions:

1. What things are you interested in right now?

2. What subjects do you excel in?

3. What type of work are you interested in?

4. How many hours a week do you want to work?

5. What hobbies do you have?

If you are interested in science then you may want to consider a career in it. There are many different science careers that you can try out. If you enjoy experimenting with things and problem solving then you can consider a science career that is in a laboratory. On the other hand, if you enjoy the great outdoors you can consider a field science career. Whatever science career you select you will want to think about what type of lifestyle you want to live and what aspect of science will keep you excited over the years.
