Summer is when we all get a little more active. If you are looking for ideas for your middle school science fair projects then consider looking at your summer activities using science fair science kits. For example, you can examine the mechanics of your summer sports, you can look at why your boat stays afloat in the lake, you can explore the habitats that are established in local recreation areas or you can complete a species count at your favorite park or recreation site.
One project idea that you can work on this summer is looking at the science of body building supplements. You can explore the components of these supplements and then determine why they work/don’t work. You may want to compare brands or even complete your own trials to see how they impact sports performance.
If you are having a hard time coming up with ideas for your science fair projects, then experiment with a young scientists club science kit set. This set will walk you through science experiments, providing you with the tools and ingredients needed for a variety of projects, and they can provide you with great ideas for more advanced experiments. Some of these kits will even providing you with a check list for additional projects that you can perform after completing the first experiment.
