I'm trying to come up with ideas for a soccer project. Anybody got some?

Welcome to the Forum.

We have two projects in our web site that are specifically about soccer:

http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p030.shtml

http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p031.shtml

You can find many more by typing "science fair project soccer" into Google or any other search engine.

Best of luck.

Thanks!

I'd found the first one already, but the second one is new to me, Thanks again!

Hi Jacobie,

John has suggested two really good projects ideas and given you really good advice for finding alternative projects.

I think you will make progress on your science project if you will let us know which project you are doing. What is your research question? Have you done your background reading yet on your topic? If so, what did you learn?

The experts here at Science Buddies want you to be very successful, so do let us know if you need more help.

Okay, so far I've conducted the first experiment listed and am answering the question, "What is the best angle to shoot at the goal from?" This question is just the first of many and more advanced questions are soon to come. The results are: An 80 degree angle from the goal line is the best angle to shoot from since most players giv a spin to the ball urging it to move a little to the left or the right. Although a shot perpendicular to the goal line sounds easier, the position of the right foot while shooting makes it easier to shoot at an angle from 70-80 degrees.

Here is my official thread where I will start from the beginning and explain my science project and will post further developments.
