Laboratory techniques are always useful when planning your science fair project. These can help you organize and save time!
- Gel Electrophoresis
- This technique is useful for forensics, molecular biology, genetics, microbiology or biochemistry experiments.
- This technique is useful for physics, chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology experiments.
- Serial Dilution
- This technique is useful for experimental sciences include biochemistry, pharmacology, and physics as well as in homeopathy.
- pH Indicator Paper
- This technique is useful for medicine, biology, chemistry, food science, environmental science, oceanography and many other applications.
- This technique shows you how to use a balance and make precise and accurate weighing measurements.
In order to correctly write down your results while doing these procedures, we have included some guides on lab note taking to aid you in this process.
- Engineering and Math Lab Note-Taking
- A quick guide which details effective lab note-taking for engineering and math.
- General Science Lab Note Taking
- An extensive and detailed guide for all sciences
- Behavioral Lab Note Taking
- An easy guide for behavioral sciences; includes a detailed example.
- Error Analysis
- One frequent problem with science fair projects is the lack of error analysis. This will help you understand common sources of experimental error.
Whenever using these techniques or performing experiments remember to always use proper safety procedures. Go to Safety for proper safety procedures.
