More Amazing Science Fair Projects
You've decided that this is your year to shine at the science fair - or at least your year to sparkle a little. No problem - Kidzworld's got the ideas you need to dazzle the judges and bring home the blue ribbon you know you deserve!
Science Fair Project - Oil Slick
We've all seen those sad images of dying sea animals and oil-covered birds that follow an oil spill. Why not use your science fair project to help the poor critters out? In this experiment you'll figure out which materials best clean up an oil spill. Check out www.tryscience.org for details on how to put together this environmentally-friendly science fair project.
Science Fair Project - Mummy Magic
Ancient Egyptians figured out how to turn people into prunes, so why can't you? Since we're hoping you don't have easy access to a dead body, this science experiment involves an apple instead. You'll learn how Egyptians used dehydration as an important part of the mummification process. You can also do research into why ancient Egyptians mummified their dead and what they believed happened to apples... err, people after they died. For more 411 on this project, check out www.tryscience.org.
Science Fair Project - How Do Probes Get To Space?
If you've ever wondered how the folks at NASA shoot a giant, heavy rocket out of the atmosphere and into space, then this is the science experiment for you. Using materials that you probably already have lying around the house, you can build your own probe and discover how thrust and force are used to propel it into motion. For all the instructions head to www.tryscience.org.
Science Fair Project - Got Gas?
We're not talking about the burrito kind of gas; we're talkin' about the kind of gas you get when you separate H2O (water) into H and O (that's hydrogen and oxygen for those of you who slept through science class). In this science fair project you'll use electricity to separate the water into its individual molecules. It's some pretty cool battery science. For all the details on how to perform this feat go to www.tryscience.org.
