Logbooks 

While logbooks are not formally required as a part of K-12 InVenture Prize judging process, they are required at the NICEE competition and are always good practice for scientists and engineers. We strongly encourage all teams to keep records in their logbooks and bring them to their school competition and state finals. Below are some helpful resources for starting, organizing, and keeping your logbook.
