Upon getting information about an upcoming school science fair and the need to consider a topic of interest, many students will typically have no idea where to get started. While the science fair is typically a common occurrence in any school at any grade level, there are different types of topics that should be taken a look at depending on the age of the student. After first taking a look at the many different categories of science projects, you will be able to locate a suitable choice of topic to take to the next level.There is a wide variety of categories that fall under the types of science projects that can be chosen for a school science fair. These include biology, chemistry, physics, microbiology, biochemistry, medicine, environmental, mathematics, engineering, and earth science. While you may not have yet learned very much in any of these categories, don’t be afraid to see what each one entails. Taking a good look at your interests will allow you to focus on the right direction to take.Many resources are also available for those who are unsure as to the topic they are wanting to use to create their science projects. If you take a look at the topics that fall under the biology category, you will likely notice that there are topics that deal with plants, animals, and humans. For those who are in 2nd grade or 3rd grade, an interesting topic may be to determine if ants are picky over what type of food they eat. While this topic might not be of interest to an 8th grader, it is certainly something in the biology category that an elementary school student would enjoy.Along with the biology category, a high school student may want to take a look at diffusion and osmosis in animal cells as this would be a more appropriate topic for the grade level. A student in 6th grade would be more advanced than an elementary school student, but not as advanced as a high school student. At this middle school grade level, a topic of how pH levels effect the lifespan of a tadpole may be of interest.Whichever resource is used to locate a topic for science projects, it is always a good idea to consider the grade level of the student prior to making a selection. It is always assumed to be best to have a project at an appropriate level in order to keep the attention of the student and provide a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
Have you ever had a dispute with your landlord? If so, if you had know your renter’s legal rights beforehand, some of your problems would have been alleviated. Let’s look at some of your lawful and legal rights. These rights could be of help both to you and your landlord. Don’t assume your landlord knows all the laws and is never wrong. This article will help educate you on what you can expect as a renter.1. Applying for an ApartmentThe government says that you have the right to apply for an apartment without being discriminated against because of your race, gender, color, religion, age, nationality, physical or mental disability or family status. Another renter’s right is to know why your application was rejected, if you are denied housing.2. Signing a LeaseWARNING: Make sure you read your lease carefully, especially the fine print. It would be a good idea to have your attorney review the lease. Signing the lease without reading it completely might cause you to unintentionally forfeit some of your renter’s rights, such as requesting the landlord pay for apartment repairs.3. Maintaining Your PrivacyRenter’s legal rights include the right to privacy in your own home. In most states, unless in case of emergency, a landlord should give you at least a 24 hour notice before coming into your apartment.4. Requesting RepairsYour apartment must be in livable condition. Heat, water and electricity must be provided and the unit should be free of any safety hazards. If your apartment is in disrepair, you have the right to withhold part of your rent, make the repairs yourself and bill the landlord, report it to a building inspector or moving out without the penalty of violating your lease.5. Getting Sued by Your LandlordIf you are sued, you have all of the following rights:* The right to receive proper notice in a timely manner* The right to make amends (pay the overdue rent, fix the lease violation)* The right to appeal the lawsuit6. Getting EvictedThere are three types of eviction notices.1. A Pay Rent or Quit Notice gives you 3 to 5 days to either pay your overdue rent or move out of your apartment.2. A Cure or Quit Notice may be given to you if you are in violation of your lease (such as illegally owning a pet or causing frequent noise violations). This type of eviction notice gives you a set amount of time to either fix your bad behavior or move out.3. The third type of notice is an Unconditional Quit Notice. This type of eviction letter simply orders you to leave. It gives you no chance to redeem yourself. This type of notice is usually reserved for a particularly bad offense such as making repeated lease violations, causing serious property damage or conducting illegal activity in your apartment.7. Receiving Your Security DepositThe best way to ensure you receive 100 percent of your security deposit back after you move out is to do an initial walk-through when you first move into the apartment. Document any damages you find such as carpet stains, broken appliances or streaks on the walls. It is also a good idea to take photographs of the damages so that you can prove they existed before you moved in.Most important of all for a Renter’s Legal Rights is that the renter keep an open line of communication with their landlord. Communication is a big key along with staying educated and up to date on any changes in your rights.Think you are being mistreated by your landlord?
