Right now the hottest trend in high school science fairs is alternative energy projects. Sponsors of high school science fairs are offering special prizes and incentives to students to focus on alternative energy subjects and to really be innovative. Because of the quality of prizes offered by sponsors for superior alternative energy science fair projects, the demand for alternative wind energy plans for high school science fair projects is skyrocketing.
As I researched alternative wind energy plans for high school science fair projects I noticed that many provided basically the same schematics. The similarity between schematics is an issue that science teachers and students need to think about when planning their science fair project. If you simply use a schematic, or wind power plan, that you buy or download from the Internet, then chances are your project is not going to fair as well as it would if you modify the plan and make it your own.
Science fair judges are looking for originality and innovation. Don’t be afraid to take chances, to try something new or to think outside of the box. These risky moves are going to be what will make you stand out from the other entries.
What I like to do is to first think about the conventional way to solve the problem. In this case it would be to look at the generic plans found online. After I understand the basic mechanics of what works, I like to them ask myself, “how else can the problem be solved?” This question and mindset is going to help you find unique solutions that may, or may not, be more effective or energy efficient than the generic solution. Now I am not trying to downplay the importance of the generic solution. This can be used as your baseline, or experiment control. You can them evaluate your plan’s results based on how it compares to the results obtained by the control.
