Sample Science Fair Projects

Unusual Science Fair Projects

You still have plenty of time to come up with sample science fair projects and ideas to conduct your initial research because you are now about finished with your summer break and don’t have to worry.

One strategy that you can use to come up with an idea for your science fair project is to read through sample science fair project abstracts. Abstracts and sample science fair projects will not only provide you with information about a potential topic for your science fair project, but they will also provide you with a guide for how to write up your own project report.

Here are more resources where you can find abstract. The Internet is your best resource. Students post their winning science fair projects online, as do websites designed for science fair project products. You can use these samples to see what has done well in the past, as well as to find out what topics are not being received by science fair judges favorably. For example, right now electricity experiments and energy experiments are be encouraged as the foci for science fair projects because of the need for new energy technologies to be developed.

One of my favorite search keyword phrase is unusual science fair projects. Try other words, like weird, cool, funny,outrageous. That is how I found the image at the top of this post.



Keep in mind that you can not simply reproduce sample projects and turn them in as your own. This is basically project plagiarism. However, you can take a sample project and modify it so that it is unique. For example, you can change the variables being compared, you can apply the results from the sample project to a new question or problem or you can increase the depth of the experiment by completing more trials, by experimenting with more input variables or by making some other type of modification.

    Well it is good that there is mentioned that you can’t reproduce existing projects, because such events sometimes ends up with many cheaters. At least in my experience. What about your place?

    I remember when you couldn’t copy/paste a science experiment from the Internet. You actually had to create your own hypothesis and test it from scratch.

    Yes, the Internet brings a lot of information to kids, but it is a massive resource for cheaters too.

    Honestly, I would say that probably the most important thing about a science project is originality and quality of an idea. Ambition can be a very good thing, even if you do not end up getting it to work exactly as you intended, the thought behind it is the part that matters.
