Physics Working Model Ideas please

    I need some ideas for a 8 grade level physics working model for a group project. I am thinking of flight or electro magnetism.

    Cryogenically freeze some copper rings and shoot them with magnets?

    Tell us some more of your ideas. Have you searched Google for the topic of Science Fair Projects?

    Like building a motor
    Or (I think overly ambitious) a small rubber band ornithopter.

    I'll repeat that this search should give you *lots* of ideas. Also look up the Intel Science & Engineering Competition -- there are some pretty amazing projects spread across a wide range of topics. :smile:

    I got the idea of a easy to build motor (not homo polar mind you) not sure because it really needs to bet one of a kind.
