When you are faced with your very first science fair project or your fifth science fair project assignment your reaction most likely will be the same...Yikes! However, a science fair contest doesn't have to be scary or overwhelming.
The first thing that you can do to make your science fair project experience less intimidating is to focus on a topic that is interesting to you. For example, if you enjoy star gazing or science fiction related to space travel, then consider focusing on astronomy. This field of science has a lot to offer students working on science fair projects.
Within the subject of astronomy are volumes of possible science fair project topics. You can look at stars, galaxies, gravity, black holes, worm holes, super novas, the Big Bang Theory and even the speed of light. Each of these topics have dozens of possible sub topics and topic options.
Once you have a topic that looks interesting you need to find a unique angle or approach to that topic that will allow you to create a science fair project. This focusing of your topic step by step is the best approach.
