The Virtual Science Fair projects listed below were created by Introduction to Physical Science students and four Biology students--all are high school Freshman!
These projects competed in our school-wide science fair, yet they have no printed reports or display boards. The students' research was done entirely on the World Wide Web and links were made to each site where information was used. The Virtual Science fair projects were also submitted to Innovations and some of the winners are listed below.
