Students Study DNA in the Classroom
It can be a difficult task to make a perfect science project that can reward you. Opt for a project that reconciles with your level of understanding instead of fancy scientific theories and presentations as grasping the scientific explanation is not a cup of tea for a middle school student.
Ideas for Science Fair Project
  • What is the origination of so many languages of mankind?
  • What is the reason for moths and other kinds of insects to get attracted towards light sources?
  • What are the types of molds and which is the most harmful to humans and pets?

  • How does a tube-light glow?
Science Magnetic Field
  • What is the working principle of an electromagnet?
  • Is it true that plants grow well when they are exposed to soothing music?
  • What is the reason behind motion sickness?
  • How does a hydroelectric power plant work?
Science fair project
  • Working of volcanoes.
