Need Science Fair Ideas

  1. Sep 28, 2009 #1
    I need science fair ideas... and quick! I love math and the universe so this was the first place I came looking for ideas, but my mind is blank. So I eventually came back... and I still need ideas! I must have at least three to present tomorrow. We only had the weekend, so don't blame me!

    You were given only the weekend to come up with 3 science fair presentations? Or just 3 ideas for a presentation?

    Just three ideas, although it seem much longer than a weekend to come up with a question that would be presentable to an honors class.

    9th grade... and not very good at science fair... at all... But I want to be, because I love all kinds of science.

    A fun one I think would be analyzing the effects of card counting in blackjack.

    Well, do you even have a general topic in mind?

    If your mind is entirely blank, it indicates that you haven't yet done anything at all to help yourself. According to the PF guidelines you agreed to when you signed up, we cannot do your homework for you.

    Why don't you begin by reading some wikipedia pages? Since you're interested in the universe, start with topics such as "astronomy," "star" or "spectroscope." Click on whatever links interest you, and start building a list of possible topics. Once you've narrowed down your focus, we might be able to help you with the design of a suitable experiment.
