Physics Project Ideas for High School Student

  • #1

For the final project I do at a high school level, we are required to construct an experiment regarding any topic of physics. The experiment should yield quantitative data which can then be analysed through equations or trends. Essentially, I need to be able to discuss and critique the work.

So, I need a project which can allow me to do this. Currently, my best idea is constructing super capacitors and then analyzing them. However, I want to see if there are any other ideas that I have yet to see.

I have looked for over a week, including scanning some threads here. Additionally, the project should not be too expensive (<$100 ideally, though it can stretch).

Has anyone got any solid ideas which I could potentially do? Any help or projects will be greatly appreciated.

Have a look at the above article and then contact me via PM to begin a correspondence by email. I find it better not to discuss my best ideas on a public forum. I have mentored many successful science projects, including several first place winners at the state level in Physics (and Math, Chemistry, Animal Science, Environmental Science, and Mechanical Engineering).
