As I was saying, it can be a difficult task of making up your mind on one perfect science fair project which can bag you the gold in your race with several other strong competitors. It is most likely that you may consider a highly advanced project with all kinds of fancy scientific terms, explanation, theories, instruments, presentation, etc. But what I feel as a student of science myself, pick up a project that reconciles with your level of understanding and you must know its intricacies well. For instance, it is not a big deal to present a project on cosmic rays. But what becomes challenging is grasping the scientific explanation behind this phenomenon, which, definitely isn't the cup of tea for a student in middle school.
