Jan 14- Feb 8
PHASE I : THE PROPOSAL (20 points)
The proposal is a detailed written plan of how the
project will be done. It is like designing an experiment. Since it
is yet to be done, the future tense of the verb is used.
PHASE II: THE INVESTIGATION (20 points)
As soon as your proposal is approved you
can now start investigating. Your procedure will
be your guide. Keep track of all your
observations and data by placing them on a
table. Document also your works by
photographs, videos, etc.
Scientific fraud and misconduct
are not condoned at any level of
research or competition. Plagiarism,
use or presentation of other
researcher's work as one's own
forgery of approval signature and
fabrication or falsification of data will
not be tolerated. Fraudulent projects
will fail to qualify for GRADUATION.
Sometimes judges do not have time to study all the
details of your work, they only read the abstract, thus it’s
called the SHOW WINDOW of your project.
