". . . an excellent resource . . . The text is easy to understand . . ."

Garland Independent School District, December 15, 2011

"The information is reader friendly . . ."

Association of Region XI School Libraries

"Vickers has written an excellent sourcebook for teens interested in science fairs . . . Although this book is aimed at students preparing for a science fair, it really should be mandatory reading for students in any science class that demands a report. In addition to being very informative, it is one of the most entertaining books about science fairs out there."

Children's Literature

"This is the 'alpha dog' of science fair resources! I recommend this book not only as a science fair guide but as an engaging and readable text that will motivate students to think like a scientist and relate to other young people who have excelled in science research projects. . . . This book will appeal to a wider audience than middle school students and their teachers."

". . . a must-read book for any teen interested in winning their school science fair . . . An excellent choice for any library and a great choice for science teachers."

Puget Sound Council, November 2010
