FFA Agriscience Fair CDE Written by Dr. Teri Hamlin Georgia Agricultural Education March 2001 Georgia Ag Ed Curriculum

Slide 2

What is the Agriscience Fair? Center & High School FFA individuals show and show agriscience ventures that are augmentations of their agriscience courses

Slide 3

Purpose Agriscience Fair Encourage understudies to utilize exploratory procedure & strengthen abilities & standards learned in the classroom Provide acknowledgment, enrolling & limited time open doors for FFA program

Slide 4

Researched Based Project Categories include: Biochemistry/Microbiology/Food Science Environmental Science Zoology Botany (Plant & Soil Science) Engineering (Mechanical/Agricultural Engineering Science) Divisions: Division I: singular understudies seventh - ninth Division II: singular understudies tenth - twelfth Division III: groups of two individuals seventh - ninth Division IV: groups of two individuals tenth - twelfth

Slide 5

Rules Enter one and only venture (group or individual) Team = 2 individuals dealing with same undertaking Projects must reflect understudies own work & finished amid the flow year Prohibited in showcase: Live animals Chemicals Syringe & Needles Human/Animal Cultures Lasers Combustible materials Open Flame Crystals other than sucrose & sodium chloride Exhibits requiring voltages above 120AC **** allude to CDE guide for different confinements

Slide 6

Display May comprise of one or more boards Must be steady & unsupported Max size = 48" wide x 30" profound x 108" high from the floor Upper right hand corner must have Name of student(s) Chapter Name Title of Category Division (I - IV)

Slide 7

Competition State FFA Convention, April 26 - 28th Display, Log Book, Project Report & Interview 100 conceivable focuses Scores 1 to 10 given in 10 ranges Knowledge Gained Scientific Approach Experimental Research Individual/Team Work Thoroughness Information Conclusions Written Report Interview Visual Display

Slide 8

Project Must Use Scientific Method Observation-Select a subject. Question-Ask an inquiry regarding what you watch. Theory Predict a solution for your inquiry. Strategy - Decide on an approach to test the speculation. The result must be quantifiable. Result-Conduct test utilizing characterized technique and record the outcomes. Continuously rehash exploration to affirm comes about. Conclusion-State whether your expectation was affirmed or not and attempt to clarify your outcomes.

Slide 9

Getting Started Selecting a Research Topic Choose a theme of interest Realistic (understudy capacities, learning, assets and time) Select point coordinates intently to SAE Seek a subject that can be extended National winning undertakings (long haul 2-3 year with performed replications & more information gathering)

Slide 10

Selecting a Topic Get Ideas & Resources: Websites look Current daily paper, magazines, Educational TV programs Librarians, Federal, State, County and Local offices Visit a college and address educators or graduate understudies required in subject Contact modern firms doing research in theme territory

Slide 11

Present Research Effect of Colored Mulch on Tomato Root Growth

Slide 12

Don\'t waver to inquire. On the off chance that you are intrigued, a great many people will help you. It is imperative to keep a complete book index of all material found and a rundown of individuals who made a difference.

Slide 13

Question After you settle on a point, you require an inquiry Narrow down your field of exploration. It is critical to concentrate on one inquiry . A few Guidelines: What have you generally needed to know around there? Pick an inquiry that can be replied with a YES or a NO. What are scientists asking around there?

Slide 14

Remember: the primary necessity of a researcher is interest If a world-class physicist can invest hours making sense of the way curveballs work and the velocity at which they work best, don\'t expect any inquiry you concoct is too modest to examine.

Slide 15

Construct Theory Base Search for things that will empower you to fabricate a contention that the proposed research venture is important and will make a commitment to the group of learning that as of now exists Internet Books Magazines College of Agriculture Experiment Stations Extension Service Agribusiness

Slide 16

Student\'s Research Proposal Statement of the issue Purpose and destinations of examination Summary of past exploration Method: How investigation will be set up so as to take care of the issue Data accumulation : Procedures for gathering and breaking down information Assumptions : what is your "best figure" speculation concerning the result of the trial Limitations : Define any restrictions that may affect result Definition of Terms : for individual perusing paper with no past learning of branch of knowledge Bibliography

Slide 17

Hypothesis What do you think might be the solution for your inquiry, how the undertaking will turn out? The theory is the conceivable answer you will attempt to demonstrate or refute. There is no correct answer here. As the venture advances, attempt to figure out whether speculation is valid.

Slide 18

Decide on a methodology & technique How will you approach doing the trial? Technique will be the procedure by which the theory is demonstrated or invalidated. Accumulate a rundown of the considerable number of materials expected to lead examination. Monitor costs. While doing test, keep extremely precise records of all means & tests performed. Record disappointments and additionally triumphs.

Slide 19

Record your outcomes Use a scratch pad to record all data or information. Make diagrams and charts, draw pictures or utilize tape to show comes about. Give actualities, not sentiments. In the event that analysis utilizes estimations, then give those definite estimations. Try not to utilize terms like: about, pretty much, near, and so forth

Slide 20

Record the Results What was the consequence of the analysis? Have you dispensed with all variables? (conditions which could influence the answer however for which you are not trying) Repeat investigation to guarantee precision & legitimacy. It is suggest that investigation be rehashed at least 8 times to approve.

Slide 21

Conclusion Write a last report condensing your inquiry, research strategies and conclusion. The conclusion is the solution for your inquiry. Should be clear, succinct and adhere to the point. Oppose the allurement to make a hasty judgment. What did your task show you?

Slide 22

Conclusion address these inquiries If you were to do your test once more, would you get the same results? Can there be contrasts? Why? What happened when you tried your theory. Regardless of the fact that the investigation demonstrated your speculation wasn\'t valid, you\'ve learned something. What is your task\'s significance? What have you realized?

Slide 23

Prepare a triumphant presentation

Slide 24


Slide 25

Winning Display Prepare a showcase to give your group of onlookers a speedy review of the inquiry you asked, the technique you utilized, the outcome you got, and the determination you came to Make graphs, charts or outlines to clarify your inquiry, strategies and results A flawless and composed notice will clearly impart your work superior to a messy, muddled one.

Slide 26

Include inside Display Notebook Includes the bare essential points of interest of the test Make beyond any doubt it is finished & the data in it clear Demonstration Materials Items that outline an investigative guideline, hardware or materials utilized, or empower others to follow your means "Hands-on" will make a show additionally intriguing and help other people comprehend your revelation Use photos to delineate your work if your examination includes significant gear or creatures & risky chemicals that are not permitted
