Life Sciences

Life Science projects include botany and zoology, as well as psychology and kinesiology of non-human organisms.
Examining plant growth or animal behaviour are examples of Life Science. Some phenomena, such as digestion, involve both Life Science and Physical Science. To determine the best placement, consider whether the young scientist's intent was to study the chemistry of the process, or the role of the process in the life of the animal (eating, production of enzymes, handling of waste, etc.) Does the exhibitor's view of the problem extend to include the organism?
