    science vs. sciencific

    Dear teachers,

    Should I use "science" or "sciencific" in the following sentence?
    Helen has to turn in her science report by Wednesday.

    What do you mean by "turn in her"? Do you mean "return her"?

    Helen has to return her scietific report by wednesday.
    Helen has to submit her scientific report by wendnesday.

    thanks for the meaning..

    Will "scietific report" be inappropriate to use in this sentence?
    I think both can be used...
