The Not-Quite World Famous Scientist by Susan Hughes

Fitzhenry & Whiteside, 2002

From the publisher's website:

Alexandra Bointon dreams about becoming a scientist. When her school has their annual science fair, she always pairs up with her best friend, who is happy to let Alex take over and call all the shots. But this year is different. Her best friend teams up with someone else, and Alex ends up with the new kid, Keith. Reluctant to accept the situation, Alex tries to squirm out of it until Keith tells her his Aunt Karen is a famous scientist, who will be visiting him soon. Alex is excited at the prospect of meeting her idol; maybe teaming up with Keith won't be such a bad deal after all.
