Need a Science Fair!! Answered

Well folks, it's that time of the year again, and I'm not talking about walrus mating season (You're welcome for the mental image though!)

I am in need of a science fair project for the 30th!

SO, being the good citizens that you are, get me a science fair!!!!

Nah, I'll ask more politely:

I'm in 10th grade. Could anyone recommend a science fair project? I mean, the whole deal, an instructable detailing the whole thing. (I won first prize for the beetlebot last year)

So....help plz.

I eagerly await Mr. Kiteford's response.

A jar, of what exactly, the centre of my head or jam?

Must be Kiteman's jet jam jar or one of your designs.

The jam-jar jet could be a crowd-puller (they're noisy), but you'll need decent safety precautions and spare jars to go with your lid (watch the video to see why).

Thoughts (using more recent ibles first):

That do you?

I've got a little project coming within the week that's a pretty big wow and has some insane science behind it despite being composed of two bits. Having the writing done means that I can say I've made a mash of explaining it in the same way that I made the first five iterations, substituting materials I had on hand anyway for bizarre and silly ideas only to find that my suspicions about it working were completely unfounded. However the project is cool and would be a bit of spectacle, timing it to pull a crowd would be the best bet....

That's pretty cheap :-) ( 25 cents )

Well once I get the first one finished and up I'll be going on to the next experiment with this, making a version that you can use for stuff...
