including interactive science project submission pages and quizzes.
A good science project topic should be something you:
- are interested in enough to spend several weeks thinking about.
- can find reference materials about.
- can measure.
- can experiment on safely and with the materials and equipment available to you.
Once you have a topic, write a scientific question. Try to start your question with one of these words who, what, when, where, why, or how.
Avoid brand comparisons, topics that are simply surveys about a group of people, and ideas that are difficult to control and measure.
For more information and examples of what topics to avoid check out our page on choosing your
science fair project question.
To self-check whether or not you have done a good job choosing a science project topic, think about the following questions and answer "yes" or "no" honestly.
If you answered "no" to any of the self-check questions then your topic may not be a good one. Consider changing your topic or asking your teacher or another adult mentor for help.
