You've probably often seen planes flying and boats in the water, but have you really thought about aerodynamics and hydrodynamics involved in their operation? There is a lot of interesting science that goes into how they work. Here are a few of the topics covered by our science fair Project Ideas designed to help you investigate the science of aircraft and watercraft:
How a rocket sends a satellite to explore another planet
Shapes of objects and their effect on speed in air and water
How an airplane stays up in the sky
Different factors that affect rocket or boat performance
Browse through our aerodynamics and hydrodynamics science Project Ideas and let your imagination fly.
