Science Projects Webpage


The purpose of this web page is to suggest projects. Note that most of these projects ideas are lists of topics and are without elaboration. We are expanding some of these topics, but our staff is limited, so the science project ideas that you will find here may not be comprehensive. If you find that a science project idea is too vague try to fit one of these ideas to it to invent you own science project:

  1. What is it?
  2. Can it be generalized?
  3. Can you make some general statements about it?
  4. Can you simplify your view of it by making some assumption?
  5. Does it fit an existing pattern?
  6. Can it exist?
  7. Must it exist?
  8. Can you design something related to it?
  9. How can it be accomplished?
  10. What is the process of it?
  11. How can it be used?
  12. How can you classify it?
  13. How is it made?
  14. How is it related to something else?
  15. What happens when you consider only a part of it?
  16. Is it part of something else?
  17. What are the effects of it on its environment?
  18. Whare can it be found?

Of course, not all of these are applicable. While these questions can get you started, they are not, of themselves, projects. Projects are where you do something. Here are some common types of projects:

  1. Prepare a chart.
  2. Prepare an exhibit.
  3. Collect something.
  4. Search for something.
  5. Build an apparatus.
  6. Make a measurement.
  7. Make a calculation.
  8. Prove something mathematically.
  9. Make a model.
  10. Make a prediction.
  11. Conduct an experiment.

So, the procedure should be to find a topic, link it to a question, and then to a project. Here are three examples:

  1. From the chemistry list you choose the topic Carboxylic Acids, the question, "What is the process of it?", and the project , "Make a model." So, the project would be to make a model of some process related to carboxylic acids.
  2. From the Mathematics list you choose the topic Irrational Numbers, the question, "How can you classify it?", and the project, "Conduct an experiment." The project could then be, "Computer experiments to classify irrational numbers."
  3. From the Engineering Science list you choose the topic Particle Kinematics, the question, "Does it fit an existing pattern?" and the project, "Make a calculation.." The project would then be, "Calculating patterns in particle kinematics."
