Need a clever/catchy name for science project

Postby deborahmsl » Mon Jan 04, 2016 2:55 pm

Hi there!
My 3rd grade son is testing different surfaces at the school to see which is the dirtiest for his science project.
Need a clever or funny project name.

Thanks in advance!

I could only come up with "Don't touch this!"

I like jcschrandt's idea but would change slightly to "Can't Touch This" like the MC Hammer song.

Alternatively, maybe something like "Germs, Germs, Everywhere!"

I need a catchy title for my project. It is about how different activities you do before you sleep affect the quality of your sleep. I am not very creative, so the only thing I have come up with so far is, "Sleep Effects". I showed it to my teacher, and she said I seriously need a much better title. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

I like the format where someone puts a catchy phrase first, then a colon, and then a more scientific title (Phrase: The Experiment).

How about "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This: The Effect of Nighttime Activities on Sleep Quality"? This is referencing a famous 80s song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeMFqkcPYcg). Or maybe "Goodnight, Sleep Tight: The Effects of..." Other phrases you could put before the colon include Getting Ready for Bed, To All a Good Night, Forty Winks, etc.

Good luck! :D

Thx for the quick reply! I prefer- "Getting Ready for Bed: The Effect of Nighttime Activities on Sleep Quality". I feel like that's the most relevant to my experiment. Thx!

Here are a few ideas!
