Which Is Better??

Postby dodger » Sat Jan 26, 2008 6:30 pm

Hey,

I would like to know what project is better an easy simple one that will take less than a day.
Or a project that is not that easy and will take 6 weeks bet kind of simpel. 8)

The 'best' kind of project is one that you are interested in, no matter how long it takes or how simple/difficult it is. If you have something you are really interested in but think that it's too simple for your grade level, let us know what it is and maybe we can help you make it a little more difficult.

HI,

Thank you for responding quickly.Here is the link;

:cry: I hope you find a solution.
Not only that I like the idea but I think it is something for a smaller age and would only take me an hour .
And I have time till March.6/08. That is the day of school science fair. :wink:
Thank You Very Much!!

Hi!
Like this project guide suggests, there are a couple ways to make this project more complicated. For example, you could use geometry to calculate the areas and use different brands of CDs. To add a fun twist to the project, maybe you could combine the two projects and see if there is a relationship between the font and type of document and how much data is burned onto the CD. It might be interesting to see if there is a comparison between different font styles and sizes and how much disk space it takes up. Hope this helps, good luck!

HI,
Ya that would be very intresting but I am a 5 th Grader.
So you think that would be a nice idea. Because i would like to win first place again this years
Science Fair . I also last year won first place Doing a research about TAPEWORMS.
But this year we have to do an experimental project.
If You find a good idea. Please respond ASAP.

Thank you to everyone who posted a Reply. :D

Hey,
Can you think of an idea?
What will be the question i will answer?
And how will I plan to show this Idea?
Which category will it fit in Rocks and Metals,People,Animals and Plants,Plant Materials,
General.

Those are the Questions i have to give to my teacher by Feb.6.

By the way can you find a project for a grade 2 boy.
His intrested in games and that sort of stuff.

Thankx for All your help :P

Hi!
I'd suggest looking through Sciencebuddies project ideas, here are a bunch of environmental science ideas that might fit the categories you listed-

http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... ?from=Home
http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... ?from=Home
For the game illusions, these computer science ideas might be interesting-

Hi,
As you say here i like the idea but i don't know what should be the title.
And do you think that i should have the title as the question. I would like to start as soon as possible. It would be great if you would tell me what category it would fit in.

Thank you very much!!! 8)

Hi!
Based on the categories you listed before, I would assume this project would go under "general". Are you interested in combining this and the font project? If not, maybe your title could be "measuring data storage by the "burn" or something catchy like "taking the burn: investigating data storage". If you are planning to do the font as well, it would be very interesting to write your title with different fonts and try to measure the burn of that. Post back with any other ideas...

Hi,
I thank you for answering very quickly.The title should be "Investigating Data Storage"
and under that i should have my question that i am going to think about.
Don't think about the grade 2 project thing i picked the one about the fruits have ing how much seeds.
Should the title and the question be the same.
I'm trying to combine http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f...l?from=TSW and
http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f...=&from=TSW.
But i won't start till i get the topic and the Question.
Thank You :P

HI,
Sorry the link i posted doesn't work here is the new one: http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... =&from=TSW and this one :
http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... ?from=Home . Were the two ones i am trying to put togethere. And by the way Should the title and the question be the same or have the title at the top then right under it I have my Question.
Thank You Very Much :wink:

Hi!
Hopefully this link will help you out. The title can be pretty general and the question will be the exact question that you are trying to answer, something like "is there a relationship between font size and data storage?" Hope this helps..

The title is going to be Investigating Data Storage With Fonts??
And under it is going to be the Qusetion that is going to be : Relationship Between Font Size ANd DAta Storage.

Thank You very much :roll:

And by the way what are the four most common Fruits :wink:
