PBS provides students in grades 4-7 with oodles of science fair ideas and a science fair tip sheet in this section of the DragonflyTV web site. Overviews of investigations from the television show are offered to help students hone in on an interesting topic and create their own science fair project. Each overview relays a question that a child asked on television, the main steps in his or her experiment, and the results. The overviews also include ideas for further investigations that build on the topic. To locate these investigation overviews, students can either twirl the Super Science Spinner to randomly select an investigation or browse through five topical categories: body and brain, earth and space, living things, matter and motion, and technology and invention.
