Arts & Sciences Documentation shouldn't be a big scary thing, it's simply a record of your research efforts: the sources you used, the assumptions you made, the experiments you made, and the results you obtained. It's a method of helping someone else learn what you did and follow along with you.

The 5 W's are key to documentation:

  • What is it?
  • When is it from?
  • Where is it from?
  • Who would have used/made/done it?
  • Why did it exist pre-1600 and why did you make it?

Followed by:

  • How did you do it?


Although documentation is always good to have it is also required if you're interested in entering an Arts & Sciences competition.
