Science Fair ideas
« on: August 31, 2014, 01:23:54 am »
My school's science fair is in a few weeks, and the idea I had was just publicly announced/created. (Drug reactant nail polish). I need science fair ideas ASAP, and I can not think of anything. Could you guys (and gals) help me out by giving me some ideas? It would be GREATLY appreciated.

I'm a bit of science geek and might be able to help you come up with something (I'm more theoretical  than experimental though) but I first need to know what grade your in so I don't suggest something too easy or hard, and if you have a preferred branch if science like biology, chemistry, physics etc

I'm a high school Sophmore, and I'm taking AP Bio. I'm not sure what branch I prefer, but I did a science fair project about the diffraction of light in 6th grade.

"How Carnivourus Plants Digest Insects" could be a cool topic, I've been curious about this subject since I bought a Venus fly trap in June (it has sadly died since then) but it woul be a really cool project for a science fair
Here's a website with some suggestions on what to do for a project on this topic, if you decide this topic isn't for you they also have a ton of other topics you could look through all of which have ideas of what to do for a project

Thanks so much! I thinks that's a really cool experiment. I will be doing it, and, if you want, I can post my results here!

I was going to suggest Venus fly traps. These carnivorous plants are fascinating. Their care are well illustrated in You Tube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3INjaneTow4 and the more picturesque in WikiHow Properly cared for they will keep giving great joy and fun, but keep them somewhere warm after the science fair. These are expensive plants to buy.

Horticulture is a big hobby to me. More of these carnivorous plants can be found in Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnivorous_plant

NEVER put a finger inside these plants as some can be poisonous, and always wash your hands after handling them.

I'd like to hear how you got on.

Here's a few of my favorites that I've put into different categories for ya. Hope you enjoy!

The mad scientist:
*The effects of gasoline...on fire (my parents rejected my idea)
*The effects of a monster energy drink, a box of candy, and a kazoo on a younger sibling (I got in some real trouble for that one)
*The effects of electricity (30v or more) on your face (I was a pretty violent kid growing up now that I think about it)

The biologist:
* what different common plants look like under a microscope ( you'll need a microscope equipped with a camera for this one)
*the life cycle of frogs (requires tadpoles and the know-how on keeping them alive)
*what lactic acid feels like (requires human test subjects to run until it burns...which is the lactic acid)
*why you need to wash yo filthy hands! (Requires pictures of bacteria)
*different types of fermentation (making salmi and pepperoni will help you win, but just explain how wine is made...don't actually make it...don't ask me how I know this either)

The chemist:
*the wonders of sodium silicate (DO NOT EAT--just look)
* the effects of gasoline on fire (seriously you should consider doing this one...it'll be fun)
*the chemical reactions of acids and bases
*what is "hydrophobia" (requires water and hydrophobic sand)
*how to distill stuff (DO NOT MAKE WHISKEY LIKE I DID...apparently teachers...and police officers do not like that) --but this one can be pretty cool if you can obtain the proper glassware and choose to distill something thats not fermented...in fact, just distill water.

The rich kid (if your that guy):
*3D printing
*EMP generator (don't make a powerful one...just kill a flashlight or a calculator)

Well I sure hope this gives you some ideas...lemme know if you need some more suggestions
Gardens are truly amazing, they can be created to be as welcoming and comfortable as you like. If done correctly, they will attract new friends, neighbors, and friendly wildlife. With hard and honest work, it can become a personal paradise...There's a reason why God created man in a garden.
