# Build Something Aerodynamic Science Projects (6 results)

Build something to learn how to harness air pressure and wind. Design your own wing, propeller, or even a wind turbine to generate renewable energy.

 Grade Level Elementary School Middle School High School Search Refinements Cost Very Low (under \$20) Low (\$20 - \$50) Average (\$40 - \$80) Average (\$50 - \$100) High (\$100 - \$150) Very High (over \$150) Time Very Short (≤ 1 day) Short (2-5 days) Average (6-10 days) Long (2-4 weeks) Very Long (1+ months) Material Availability Readily Available Requires Specialty Items Project Kit Available Clear All Filters Science Fair Project Idea Have you ever seen butterflies fluttering around outside, gliding through the air and landing on flowers? While they are delicate and fragile, butterflies are actually excellent flyers. They are so good, in fact, that scientists at Harvard University studied butterfly wing shapes as an inspiration for building a miniature flying robot. In this science project, you will do your own version of the Harvard scientists' experiment to measure the flight performance of butterfly wings.

Fill the tube with the fluid to be tested. Drop the marble into to the tube and measure the time it takes to fall a fixed distance. Repeat the measurement several times, and use the average value. How does viscosity change with the amount of sugar dissolved in water? How does viscosity change with temperature?

Find out how a wind turbine can use the power of the wind to generate energy in this science fair engineering project. You'll design various blades to find out which produces the most energy, and put the wind to work for you!

Find out how wind changes air pressure to bring to objects together in this easy and fun science fair project! Read more Science Fair Project Idea How does a helicopter generate enough lift to fly? How does a speedboat get moving fast enough to pull someone on water skis? Here's a project on designing propellers to do the job. Read more Science Fair Project Idea Try different wind turbine/propeller (chord length, pitch) designs by making models from balsa wood. Connect the spinning axle to a DC motor and measure the voltage produced across a resistor to measure power output. Use fan as wind source. (Judge, 2004) Read more
