Ideas for Young Scientist competition
Posted September 17, 2008on:
I put together a list of (124) possible Young Scientist projects for my second-year class. Most of them are taken from previous years and hopefully it will give them some ideas.
Closing date is October so you need to get cracking. You don’t need to have the project finished by then, but you will need to have a one-page description ready to send off. Remember only about half of the applications are accepted for presentation.
The good news is that we will be concentrating on this over the next two weeks, so no boring science textbooks.
I pushed this with fourth years before but got nothing but frustration for my troubles. So this year I was going to concentrate on second-years, but some of my fourth-years have actually come up with some very interesting ideas. Hold this page.
The list of projects is here.
The Young Scientist homepage with rules is here.
Now get cracking!
Some of my science class investigating the action of saliva by trying to eat three crackers in under a minute – is there a science project here?
