    What's that?

    I'm in twelth grade so maybe I could help. What is an internal, and what do you mean by needing a project. Like just some experiment, or what?

    Projectile motion's always fun. Build some sort of launching device, with a spring is easiest, and use classical Newtonian equations to calculate the amount of force it will produce. Set it at an angle, choose a (preferably round) projectile, weight it, calculate the theoretical distance the launcher will shoot it and see if you can consistently hit a target.
