This booklet is intended to provide students in grades 6 to 8 with ideas and resources for developing environmental science fair projects, specifically in the areas of reducing, reusing, and recycling waste materials. Environmental terminology and topics in this booklet are addressed without in-depth definition or discussion, under the assumption that students have been exposed to these topics already through a classroom environmental science unit. Some kinds of experiments require more time than others to yield results. Be sure to discuss your intended time frame when helping students decide on a project.
