This does look like it is an event aimed mostly at the younger crowd, however.

Science fair project?

I'm a 15 year old, and for the science fair, I'm planning to do something based around a floating lightbulb and wireless power transfer. However, the project has to be based around an investigation, (with a hypothesis, and a written up report including variables, etc.) I'm stuck on an aim/hypothesis, and I wonder if anyone has any ideas?

Science fair project?

Its that time of year when all the science nerds and geeks come to enter the science fair! Now the problem with me (a science geek) is that I have no idea what to do! I really need something to blow the judges minds, so if you have anything awesome please tell me. Happy building!

New Science Forum

For anyone interested, I'm trying to start up a homebrew science site. It could use some more members :Phttp://homebrewscience.comEventually, you'll be able to participate in member projects, write articles (and have them peer-reviewed), and share photos and video.

banning good science?

Do you guys really solicit others for people to ban good science? Steve Would you please stop spamming the comment section on my Dual Axis Solar Tracker project. I had someone from the instructables staff email me today asking if I wanted to ban you from viewing my projects, or delete all your posts, or just turn off comments. It would be far easier if you just refrained. You've made your points several times over. If you wish to comment on solar trackers there are quite a few OTHER projects you could start discussions on.

Epic Science Fair Ideas? Answered

I am not a big fan of doing a science fair project, but I would love to do something big and fun with minimal actual work. Does anyone have an idea?

Epic Science Fair Project?

Okay, Okay I won't do the Digital Taste project anymore. But I need help with a new one. I am in grade 10, but i have a good understanding of arduino and programming. What projects could I do? I really only want answers about electronics or programming, as those are some of my areas of skill. So what could I do? I'm looking for innovations possibly, or really cool things remotely related to science. If possible, it should cost under $100 to make a basic working prototype, and I already have basic arduino electronic parts.Thanks.

Science Fair! Deadline Extended

The Science Fair! deadline has been extended to 11:59pm PDT, Sunday, September 2nd. That's this Sunday, folks- just an additional weekend.This was just our fault- we normally like to end on a Sunday night to give you the weekend to work, but got our dates confused when posting the contest. Use the unexpected weekend to put the finishing touches on your project, re-take some blurry pictures, work on your back-up project, or put together a quick contest entry with your kids for the Parent/Kid Collaboration prize!

In school we have science fair and i need to come up with a project. I like mechanical things not growing plants or anything like that. one year i did centrifugal force then another on the otto cycle but never got in :(...i have to use the scientific method, i was thinking something along the lines of how different nitro rc fuel percentages effect nitro engine preformance but thats kinda obvious and lame. i was also thinking of making a stirling engine but dont know how to fit the scientific method into it plus i never got any of my engines to work :( Just let me know if you guys have any good projects i can do? like i said im mechanical but i dont really have any tools to make stuff.

2 transistor Crystal radio amplifier kit - shortwave science fair

This kit is 5.00 dollars . To order send email. Then send check.  The amplifier  has the parts soldered on top of homemade circuit board. It is tested . I listen for KCBS, KGO,kSCO and several other stations with only a small ferrite on a crystal radio..  Only the circuit board is included.  The coil and tuning capacitor are not included. Many coil and variable capacitor combinations will work up to about  13 Mhz.  There is a small wire near the output which provides feedback when it is moved towards the input.  Each station is tuned individually as the feedback is different. Wrap several turns around the input coil (not included).  The variable capacitor is in parallel with the coil. The shortwave coil can be a 1 inch diameter with 13 turns of narrow wire. Stations I pick up are Radio Havana Cuba,  Radio New Zealand , Church and amateur. There are some cautions. It could include cutting tape for your circuit design.  The shortwave requires an external antenna. Schematic included. Crystal earphone is not included. Another transistor can be added for speaker  or 8 ohm type earphone.
