Lightbulb Stars

Do the different steps a star takes before it dies. That is easy and interesting!

P.S. Red giant is the first step, white dwarf is the second, and if the star is huge it will explode!

Talking Candy!!!

when I was in grade 7, I did a realy good project on rock candy. I explained how it forms, tested what variables effect the crystal growth (such as extra heat, seeing what happens when you put a magnet beside the growing crystals, and I made some! It won first place ( )! feel free to use this idea. if you need help, here is a good link:

(and the best part was I could eat the candy after the science fair!)

My sister's friend is doing this project: how people react to diet/low-carb/sugar-free food vs. regular food. for this you would give people diet and regular food and see which one they like better (this works best if they do not know which one is the diet food) This project is pretty simple but is fun and interesting

That'll be impossible to control because you can't assume people have the same conditions to start out with.

In 8th grade, I performed an experiment of testing the effect of the temperature on how well a ball bounces. (If your child has time to research into it, you'll find some nice physic laws explaining it... ex combined gas laws, in a more complex form--the ideal gas law PV=nRT. You can also research into nice long temrs-- coefficient of restitution, basically elasticity... what elasticity is, potential vs. kinetic energy in the ball)

that's true, but this is a different kind of experiment-its more like a poll or statistical thing.
