kellyrox is helpful, nice and has lots of friends here
Cool Hmmmmmm.......

I am in 7th grade GT, and I need to come up with a project idea by May. I have been thinking about stuff to do with air pollution, and well, every kind of pollution. I think that is what I want to do my project on. Does any one have any ideas on questions that I could research?? it could be just general ideas to get me stared. I appreciate any help that you can give. Thankyou!!

How does light pollution affect our lives?
Why does the ozone layer need protected?

I am on a brain stump, but I have a question, do you need any ideas for display?Or do you even have to display it?

You can try this:
Coat 3-4 papers with petroleum jelly then place them (suspended) in different locations. After around 12 hrs, check them and you'll see different dust particles and pollutants on them Use this in your project, it might just help!

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.

Great idea! Though you'd want to put them in places that you know are different in big aspects. Perhaps put one next to a car-filled street, or the subway, or one in a nice and quiet woods. I suggest that you don't put 12 of these in different places of your room, cause you probably won't see much of a difference.

Also, if you're interested in looking at acid rain...

Look at the different acids in acid rain. Perform an experiment on what types of acid is most damaging. Another option is to monitor the rain. If you have a long time for this, monitor the changes in the pH of the rain over a few months, or compare the acidity of the rain at different places (perferablly, places very very far away from each other, like NYC and Philadelphia). Or you can investigate the effects of acid rain on plant growth. You can use grass and make your own acid rain.
