What is it about engineering that
you like? When you think about
engineering what particular kind
of engineering do you end up
thinking about the most?

In other words, your best bet is
to narrow things down to what
you are most enthusiastic about.
You like bridges? You like towers?
You like satellites?

So, put your finger on what it is
you're exited enough about to get
through the research and work it
will take to put your project
together.

well, i have decided to do my project on propeller design, but i havent taken a physics course yet. Is it possible to learn this math and physics for the project out of class or is it within my reach.

Have you given any thought about your exact topic?

There are a bunch of things you could do without knowing a whole lot about the intricacies of aerodynamics.

You're only a junior, so you probably won't need to go much deeper than a 'first cut approximation' (correct me if I'm wrong, here... I've never entered a science fair)

yes after some long reading i have decided that my project will be on propeller design and how engine performance is related to that

You could investigate the relationship between pitch, rpm, and power.
