Hello, and welcome to Science Buddies!

Finding a title for your experiment that's catchy can be difficult. You certainly want to tie it into your project. Can you tell us a little more about your experiment?

Cheers,
Deana

This is my eggsperiment sounds more like you are introducing your experiment. More like what you'd put in the beginning of a research paper. What you want as a title would be something catchy and about the experiment. Out of those two choices, I believe that "Are you eggcited?"

How about combining the two ideas?

Suggest: "Is my eggsperiment eggixactly eggciting?" You cannot help, but to notice this title!

Jay provided excellent advice. I would keep the title short, and I vote for "Are you eggcited?" Good luck!

"'Is my eggsperiment eggixactly eggciting?' You cannot help, but to notice this title!"

You're exactly right, but I have to agree with the others. "Are you eggcited?" is short and memorable, not to mention a lot more interesting than many other titles you see in science fairs. :)
