An important part of learning is doing! Science fairs and STEAM events offer students an opportunity to practice investigation and engineering design. But how are scientific projects different than engineering projects? Think of investigators as scientists and inventors as engineers. Scientists use research and experiments to explore the world around us. Engineers design and make things that will solve problems.
Not sure where to how to get started? Still trying to figure out what your science fair project is going to be this year? We’ve got you covered.
If you like asking questions and exploring solutions, start with a scientific project. We have over 100 projects to choose from.
If you like solving problems and proposing solutions, start with an engineering project. We have several challenges to choose from.
