Congratulations on starting your own research project using
The TRUTH About Science! We've put together a list
of web sites that may help you get started on the background
research for your project.
The information you find on the Internet or in the library is
useful both in the beginning and at the end of the research project.
In the beginning, when you are writing the introduction, background
research helps you uncover the important facts about your subject
and helps guide you to an interesting question. At the end, when you
are writing the discussion, background research can help you
understand and explain your results.
Use these links as a starting point for learning more about your
subject. You will probably find other sites that are useful as well.
us the addresses of any web pages that you think would be good
for other students; we'll add them to our list.
If you need some ideas for designing your poster, take a look at
posters from students in other classes. (Of course, we'd like to
see a picture of your poster when it is finished. If you send it in
we'll add it to our web page.)
