The Science Buddies website provides multiple project ideas in areas such as engineering, math, computer, life and physical science. It also provides guides regarding the scientific method, forming research plans and constructing a hypothesis to help students successfully complete their projects.
Visitors can access the list of projects by navigating to the Science Buddies home page, selecting the Project Ideas tab and clicking on the Browser All Projects link. As of 2015, the website features six main categories and a Special Collections section for projects related to 3D design and data processing. Each category features multiple subsections. For example, the life science category includes subsections such as zoology, microbiology and genetics, while the engineering category contains projects related to robotics, electricity and environmental engineering.
By selecting a desired subsection, visitors can peruse a brief overview of the project, the intended student level and the overall difficulty. After clicking on the More Details link for a specific project, the website displays information regarding cost, safety, materials and the average time necessary to complete the project. To access the full details of a project, including the abstract, credits and objectives, visitors need to click on the Read More link. To help students finalize a project, the Science Buddies website provides various reference materials in the Project Guide section of the website.
