If you're interested in object motion and enjoy taking mechanical objects apart to see how they work, then it sounds like you'd be interested in mechanical engineering. Check out one of the science fair project ideas below and you could find exactly what you're looking for. Here are a few of the topics that are covered:
Projectile launches, such as the trajectory of cannonballs
Springs, levers, and mechanical mechanisms
Stability, equilibrium, momentum, and inertia of various systems; for example, the results of differently shaped objects rolling down an incline
How different surface types affect motion
So get out your tools and check out these mechanical engineering science project ideas.
