Hi there!

This year my class is doing science fair projects and i need a name for mine. Could you have a look at this article and see what you can think of? Thank you!

Hi Ashy,

Always keep in mind that a project title should be descriptive, first and foremost. Keep in mind what you're trying to show to your audience here - what is the core question you are trying to answer in your experiment? That question could easily be the title itself, for a simple format. For example, something like: "How Much Iron is in Cereal?"

One "style" I recommend sometimes on this forum is the title:subtitle format. Here, you start with a catchy title phrase, then follow it up with a description of what you're really testing. So, for your iron cereal project, something like: "Breakfast of Champions: Iron Content of Cereal."

Hope that helps! One last thing: sometimes it is better to start a new thread to get peoples' attention, rather than adding onto an older thread :)
