Hello, and welcome to Science Buddies!

Do you like to build things? If so, you can do an engineering project. Instead of following the scientific method to make observations in order to test a hypothesis, you could design and / or build a machine or code to accomplish a task. You can read more about this process here.

If this interests you, look here for project ideas, or come up with one on your own!

I hope this helps. Write back if you have more questions.
Good luck!
