Physics Project Ideas for High School Student

In summary, for a high school level final project in physics, the student must construct an experiment yielding quantitative data that can be analyzed through equations or trends. They are seeking ideas for a project that will allow them to discuss and critique their work, preferably under $100. After searching for over a week, including scanning online threads, the student is looking for solid project ideas and assistance. They have found an article on successful science projects and are open to corresponding via email for further guidance.

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.
