This page will guide you through the process of creating and implementing a complete Norco Agriscience Fair Project. The process is step by step, and the next step will be uploaded as it is introduced in class.
Agriscience fair project explained:
All agriculture students in the state of California are required to have a supervised agriculture experience project. This is an agriculture project done outside of class hours that puts skills a student has learned in the classroom to work. The most well-known example of this type of project is taking an animal to the fair. But not all 400+ students have the time/means/drive to do that project! The next common example is working for someone in the agriculture industry; Animal care, feed stores, landscaping, etc. Yet another way to fulfill this requirement is the Agriscience Fair. With an agriscience fair project, any student can use the science project they are already doing in their ag science course and use it to meet their SAE requirement as long as the question or problem they are attempting to answer or solve is agriculture based!
When are the Norco Agriscience Fair projects due? First semester finals week.
Who has to do a Agriscience Fair project? All students in Mr. Macy's Ag Science classes will complete a science fair project for their final. Those students who do not have an SAE, must enter their project as an agriculture entry
When will I do this project? There will be class-time given for working on research and writing reports, but the actual experimentation, data collection, and presentation construction will be done outside of class.
Can I do it at school, or does it have to be done at home? Special arrangements can be done to use agriculture department space, facilities and tools (includes science class probes, microscopes, etc). However, this will need to be set up in advance with a proposal, detailed procedure, and teacher permission. Work done off campus needs the approval of the individual(s) hosting the experiment.
Finally, what will need to be included in the project when it is turned in?
All items below will be detailed in the step-by-step guide
- Full agriscience report. Printed.
- Science fair display board.
- Complete lab journal.
