Science Fair Tip:  Always make it easy for the judges to find information (they don't have time to read volumes of information).

Helpful Links:

Science Buddies: http://www.sciencebuddies.org.

This Web site is designed primarily for science fair projects, but these activities also make great projects for 4-H science displays or science learning activities that relate to 4-H projects. Projects are by grade-levels so they're age-appropriate. There are discussions about topics like scientific method, doing research and constructing a hypothesis. It also has an "Ask an Expert" feature.

Science Heroes: http://www.scienceheroes.com/

This website has lots of great short stories about scientists, still living among us (but are essentially unknown) that have made medical or scientific discoveries that have saved millions of lives.
