Science Fair Planning
Brainstorming your Ideas
Science begins with the art of observation! Notice what is going on around you. Think about all
those times you wondered about something or asked yourself, “what if...?” This is the beginning of
the creativity that is involved in science. Let’s start by putting your ideas on paper.
Begin with a topic then brainstorm all the words that come to mind when you think of that topic:
questions, what you know, what you would like to know. Once you have filled the page with words,
sort them as follows:
Write the topic of interest in the middle. Choose more specific topics and write them in the bubbles.
For each of these bubbles, form questions.

Example:



Pollution

Water Pollution

What pollutants
are in tap water?




Which kind of
bottled water is the
‘purest’?

How can I make a
better water filter?
How do Brita
water filters work?
