Log dates, times, thoughts and observations of both the qualitative and quantitative variety.
Write legibly but do not rewrite your logbook before your science fair competition.
Include your logbook with your project display board, and keep your journal for the next school year in case you decide to continue your experiment.
Purchase your logbook before you do anything with your experiment.
Avoid the temptation to rip out pages and recopy or even use correction fluids or tapes.
Preserve the data and notes in a raw-draft form unless you want to explain to the science fair judges why you neglected to do so.
It’s not a secret that academic writing is hard but written communication skills are essential for your success in college, graduate school, and in your future career.
That’s why you should work hard to master the art of paper writing.
Detail the entire experiment, noting day, times, room and project conditions and all data collected.
Use the ruler to create tables, graphs and sketches.
