Science Fair Project Examples & Ideas

Looking for that perfect experiment for your school science fair project or just something to do on a rainy day? Pull up your sleeves, put on an apron and lock the doors. Here are a few ideas for projects and experiments that'll get your hands dirty, scare your parents and give you a head start on that "A+" science fair project.

Crystal Garden

You don't need a green thumb to grow a crystal garden. All you need is time and patience for this science experiment. Oh, and a few ingredients. This one uses ammonia, so make sure a parent is close by.

  • Get the 411 on how to grow your own crystal garden for your science fair project.

Homemade Barometer

Weathermen always go on about how the air pressure around us makes a big difference on the weather. Now you can create your own barometer to check the air pressure and predict the weather before it happens.

  • Try to become a weather expert and blow the socks off everyone looking at your science fair project.

Salt Volcano

This simple science experiment is sure to impress your science teacher. It's not a volcano that you would use for geography class - this is your own miniature lava lamp except this one fizzles, foams and bubbles.

Pizza Box Solar Oven

Fry some eggs, put some wieners on the grill or heat some mini pizzas with this oven! Make this simple solar oven that actually gets hot enough to cook up a meal - or at least some cookies and other good stuff. As soon as the sun is out, it's time to become a chef.

  • Make your own solar oven.

Potato Battery

Now's your chance to play with your food by making a battery out of a potato. That's right - a potato is all it takes to keep a digital clock working. Well, a potato and a few other things. This is one of the easiest examples of a school science fair project but you'll probably want help from an adult with it.

Do you have any great ideas for your school's science fair project? Have you tried any of the above? about it.

Fave Kind of Science Experiment?

  • Something that blows up or explodes.
  • A project that creates enough energy to cook a ham.
  • I prefer to write reports and draw diagrams.
  • I like experimenting with robots and mechanical machines that will be useful.
