This week I’d like to start a new blog series on science fair project ideas. This week I’ll be talking about ideas for 24-hour science fair projects that involve cell phones and elliptical machines. Both of these items can be found in many homes, at school or at a local store.
The first science fair project idea that I came up with this week is to use cell phone cases and accessories as your experiment’s subject. For example, how about design a cell phone case that recharges your cell phone using solar energy. What other project ideas can you come up with for cell phone accessories like chargers, faceplates and charging stations?
The second group of science fair projects that I was thinking about this week involve elliptical machines. Elliptical machines are pieces of exercise equipment that utilize the natural elliptical motion of our legs. Project ideas using an elliptical machine include heart rate projects, sweat projects and geometry projects. One project you can put together is to determine if the elliptical shape used by these machines really do reflect the natural motion of our legs.
For more ideas on science fair projects visit a homeschool science store.
I have been scouring the Internet for science fair project blogs for our readers. One I came across is actually put out by USA Today. It is a great reference for finding news stories on science fairs and science fair projects. Check out this blog if you need a little extra help coming up with your science fair project ideas.
