Parental support is often a critical component of a great science fair project. Your motivation, praise and help in keeping your child aware of deadlines and mandatory project components will keep their project on track.  Providing access to resources for study, driving youngSarte family-web researchers to field research sites and asking critical questions about their work are just a few of the many ways in which parents can assist.

Student explaining to familyPlease remember, this is your child’s project – they need to find a topic that excites their passion for science and exploration. Parents should support, not drive, the project. Online resources below will help you spark your child’s natural curiosity and focus their organizational skills.
