This is how you find these science fair books at your library...

Most libraries use the Dewey Decimal System. If your library does, simply find the shelves marked with numbers 500 through 508 in the juvenile literature section. (Some libraries may have science fair books in the adult section as well.)

Just one warning though...

Not all science fair projects are created equal. What we mean by that is that some experiments may not be acceptable for science fair projects. Good science fair books will follow the scientific method. It will also lead you to your result rather than just give you the answer. That's what science fair projects are all about...you doing your own work.

Almost all these resources are for older students. Marilyn found few books geared for younger children. That was one of the reasons why we started this site!
