Science fair help PLEASE

Postby _juliana_d » Wed Oct 16, 2013 11:10 am

Im trying to find a project for a science fair. I really dont want it to be "just another boring science fair project".
Like, the kid last year won it by observing his baby brother every hour (even the night!) for a week. I wouldnt want to copy that but i just thought I would share. The judges like dedicaion, innovative-ness (if thats a word), creativity, and hard work.
The topics that interest me are social studies and analysis, human behaivoral patterns, baby development and learning, issues in society, community service**, and anything that I could create to help people or the earth. I want it to be really creative. We have to have our project in the Scientific Method format. And " the judges care more about having a clean format than having bells and whistles".... Im still doing bells and whistles how could I not xD But i still want it to be clean and organized.

Some ideas that interest me are-
Project on society issues such as anxiety, body image & depression in kids.
Project on baby growth and development. (I have a 6 month old baby brother)
A project to help others.
Learning about what makes people think a cerian way, or common patterns in people.
Either way, I want my project to do with people and their behavior, or community service. I dont care if it is hard, I want it to be very creative, innovative, helpful, interesting, and new.
Im homeschooled in a co-op called Classical Conversations, so I have time during the day.
Im very artistic and I love literature. Im a major perfectionist. Math is not my strong suit.
Please help me brain storm some ideas!
Thanks :D

whoops.. im not supposed to post this here.. am I?..
