Here is what is really wonderful about science fairs: You participate because you want to participate. You choose your own project because its something you want to explore. You make it work. And because a science fair project allows you to test drive a college major or a career; it gives you training wheels for the real world. Also, science fairs connect you to new friends and can distinguish your future college application. Finally, science fairs are fun roll-up-your-sleeve,…

Put a twist on the classic "aluminum foil boat" science project with this lesson plan. Normally you would build a boat and keep adding pennies until the boat sinks. Instead, here you will try to carry a fixed number of pennies in the boat, while dropping a ball into the water from higher and higher heights, creating bigger and bigger waves. Can your boat survive the stormy seas? See this page for written instructions for the lesson plan:…
