Honors Chemistry Classes

This page contains specific research guidelines for students who are enrolled in Honors Chemistry Classes.

Introduction

The idea behind student research is for the student to pose a question or find a problem to be solved. The student then designs and conducts a laboratory-based experiment that attempts to answer the question or find a solution to the problem. 

Specific expectations:

  • With guidance, find a topic that interests you.
  • Ask a specific question related to that topic.
  • Find out more about your topic by researching the topic and writing a short paper on the topic and research that has been done to date.
  • Develop a hypothesis, or possible solution, to your problem.
  • Develop an experiment that will test that hypothesis.
  • Submit a research plan and necessary science fair forms before you begin your experimentation.
  • Use class time given to conduct experimentation, as well as extra time, as needed.
  • Properly document every step of your project using a journal and a camera.
  • Analyze your data and draw conclusions, either supporting or rejecting your hypothesis.
  • Present your project at the Delaware County Science Fair on a display board, accompanied by a written paper and your journal.
  • Advance to subsequent levels of competition if you are eligible.
  • Consider entering the PJAS regional competition (for extra credit!)
  • Meet all deadlines.
