Hello! I would be happy to answer questions regarding a science fair project. Firstly, our site has many procedures laid out for science fair projects, so feel free to look through those. If I was to think of a project for this, I would first build a miniature greenhouse using guides that can be found online. Then I would measure the temperature outside and inside the greenhouse over time. Then, you can analyze how the reflection of heat within the greenhouse models the effect of greenhouse gases on Earth's atmosphere. I hope this helps and feel free to ask any further questions!

As SamuelRingel mentions, there are projects at Science Buddies that might help your student think about the project being planned. This project is one that your student might look at: ... use-effect

By looking at the background information (as well as the objective on the summary tab), your student will get a sense of the kinds of questions that might be asked. The procedure contains a step-by-step procedure for this project. The "Make it Your Own" tab has a few suggestions for ways to modify or extend the experiment.
