Science fair research paper - how to start/goal of?

Sep 27, 2008   #1
Wonderful, they've put me in gifted biology.
Which means two words. Two dreaded, evil words:
science fair.

And all the perks that go along with it.
Which include the research paper, the veryvery best part that just warms my heart at the thought of writing it.
Sarcasm, I get in trouble for it.

SO, after hunting down probably the easiest experiment ever, "How Temperature Affects the Strength of a Magnet," (over-achiever, arn't I?) I need a bit of help on how to start off my paper.

I know that magnetic strength is supposed to weaken with heat and become greater with.. coldness? Hope that's a word. Anyway, I was just wondering what exactly the goals of a science fair research paper were and how I could tie those in with my topic. And of course, I've never been good with introductions, so some tips on starting off would be very much appreciated.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, whoever helps. (:

Good afternoon.

Well, it sounds like you've got the toughest part done: you know your topic. As far as sample science fair research papers, or examples of other texts such as what you are to create, I suggest you conduct an internet keyword search for "science fair research papers"; this will give you an idea as to what is already out there.
As to "coldness" perhaps better could be "...weaken with heat and grow stronger with lesser temperatures" or something to that effect.
As to the introduction, I find it easier to write the rough draft with all of your data and information first, then do the conclusion, and wrap back around to the beginning and write the intro last. After all, how are you to write an intro explaining to your reader what you are going to tell them in the paper if you have not written the paper yet? :) I'm sure that once you have the rough draft organized you will find something to hook your readers with.

I hope this helps. When you get the rough draft together, feel free to post it to this thread and I can help you edit/proofread.
