Introduction
Write the title of the project on the top. The
title of the project, however, normally does
not give much idea on the project, so you
have to give an introduction to the project.
The introduction is a general discussion on
the topic and what you are planning to do.
You may also write about the outline of the
report.

10/5/2017 10
Aims & Objectives
When you start a work you shall surely
expect some result out of it. In this chapter
explain in short what you intend to get as
the result or the outcome of your work.
Note, it may vary from the final outcome. Try
not to exceed one page for this chapter.

10/5/2017 11
Need Statement
Justify why you selected this project in 50 to
100 words. Also justify how your work is
related to the main theme/sub-themes of
the congress.

10/5/2017 12
Hypothesis
Here you need to explain what assumptions
you had made. Remember to validate your
assumptions while coming to the final
conclusion.

10/5/2017 13
Work Plan
Write in short about the scheme of work to
complete the project. You may represent it
graphically through flow charts. Remember,
your scheme may vary later.

10/5/2017 14
Methodology - Survey based,
Experimental or both
It is the base of the project so proper design
of the experiments or the questionnaire is
very necessary. In this chapter you should
write how you have done the project, when
you did (month day etc.) and how you have
selected samples.

10/5/2017 15
However this chapter should not contain the
collected data or analysis of data. Maps,
blank sample survey form(s), etc. should be
given here. A low-cost project yet very
effective is highly appreciated.
N.B.: Maintain Log Book showing the day to
day activities which has to be submitted at
the national level Childrens Science Congress
also.

10/5/2017 16
Experimentation is what you do with your
own hands either in the laboratory or at
home or in the field
Design of the experiments with proper
controls, number of readings to be taken, set
of conditions, parameters to be included
should be discussed in simple language

10/5/2017 17
Observation
Here you need to present the data that you
have collected. Collection of data either as
responses, observations of experiments
should be done meticulously. The data
collected should be sufficient enough to be
scientifically validated.

10/5/2017 18
Data Analysis & Interpretation

Data presented under the


observation/results are analyzed, using
principles of science
Here only analysis part is to be shown

10/5/2017 19
Result
Now it is time to interpret the data you had
collected and analysed. Present the results of
the analysis. Relevant maps, figures such as
graphs, tables may be used judiciously to
represent results. They should be
understandable to all and should be
systematically represented.

10/5/2017 20
Take care to make your presentation as
simple as possible. Do not draw conclusions
here. In fact, up to this chapter you are not
supposed to give your own opinion or
interpretation. This is very important as the
data you got may mean one thing to you and
something else to others

10/5/2017 21
Conclusions
Now it is time to draw conclusions. Include
your suggestions that you think can solve the
problem. You should not generalise your
observations/conclusions or derive big
conclusions as you are working in a small
area with a small sample size.

10/5/2017 22
Solution to the Problem
Once you implement a permanent (more or
less permanent) solution to the problem
write down the steps of implementation and
how you have solved it. Figures,
photographs, maps, letters, articles published
for sensitization may be given along it.

10/5/2017 23
Future Plan
Action plan for follow-up actions is always
expected. The work that you have carried out
needs to conveyed to the general masses.
What type of action you have planned for it.

10/5/2017 24
Acknowledgement
Acknowledge the help and co-operation you
got from various individuals and
organisations. Remember that, you should
record your thanks/gratefulness to all those
who have helped you or encouraged you, it
does not matter how small the help may be
or how less important the person may be.
However, this chapter preferably should not
be more than a page.

10/5/2017 25
References
This is the last chapter of your project report.
Here you should quote all study materials
used (e.g., books, articles, new paper,
personal interviews etc.) You should write
references in a specific order. We shall stick
to writing them in alphabetical order of the
names.
