level 5 growing crystal or crystal formation

Postby camajors98 » Wed Oct 10, 2007 3:02 pm

I am looking for a level 5 science fair project on growing crystal or crystal formations. Please advise me on where I can go to find that information.

We don't know what level 5 is (unless you mean the sciencebuddies level) Perhaps you could provide your age? Most crystal growing experiments are too simple for older students, and tend to be observational rather than hypothesis driven.

Why don't you look at these two projects...

A couple of things to note: 5 is a little easy for a ninth grader, so you probably want to do some of the variations and extra work suggested.

If you don't like these projects, try the topic selector at:

I didn't find too many crystal projects that were suitable for a ninth grader. As I mentioned, most projects with crystals are too simple.

The science buddies project guide has a bunch of useful advice. You should check it out.
