The sources listed in this document are selected to provide guidance to students, parents, and teachers throughout the process of planning, developing, implementing, and competing in science fair activities. While sources range in suitability from elementary to high school levels, the emphasis is on materials for grades 9-12. This guide updates LC Tracer Bullet 88-4 (ED 303 339). More specialized sources are listed in Space Science Projects (89-3) and Environmental Science Projects (90-2). Not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography, this guide is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader "on target." Sections include: (1) subject headings used by the Library of Congress, under which books on science fair projects can be located in most card, book, CD-ROM, and online catalogs; (2) basic texts; (3) specialized titles; (4) classroom experiments and activities; (5) handbooks, manuals, and encyclopedias; (6) bibliographies; (7) book/film reviews and "best book" sources; (8) abstracting and indexing services that index relevant journal articles and other literature; (9) journals that often contain articles relevant to science fair projects; (10) representative journal articles; (11) selected materials available in the Science Reading Room pamphlet boxes; (12) addresses and phone numbers of selected competitions; and (13) additional sources of information.
