Experimental Error: Apparently many judges have complained at the State
Fair that students do not consider the experimental error associated with
their measurements and data collection. As a result, last year IJAS
included a section on 'Estimating Experimental Error' in the guidelines.

See page 6 of the 2001 CSSF Science Fair Handbook for an example of how to
introduce this concept to your classes. Supposedly, the judges will be
instructed to consider whether or not students have addressed this issue.
