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?

CoilGun science project

Ok, i'm doing a science project and I chose to use the Coilgun-Handgun Instructable to build a coilgun and test its damage and lethality on human flesh using a piece of ballastic gelatin. Does anybody know if there is a way to measure the damage against the gelatin or another experiment i could do with the gun?

Science Section

Is it just me, or is the science section as a whole getting suckier?Science is my best subject. I get A's in school, avidly read Scientific American and other science magazines, read physics and astronomy books, and once gave a 45 minute speech about the viability of Algae as bio fuel (Instructable coming soon) for a science project. So obviously, when I first joined, I ate up the science section, reading through great instructables, like the ones created by egbertfitzwilly (oh, shut up, you know who I mean) and other great instructablers. I loved them. Now however, it seems to be full of toy guns, electronics projects that belong in tech and recipes. Goda**it, just because your beer recipe uses yeast doesn't make it a freaking science fair project! If your instructable doesn't need a second category, DON'T GIVE IT A SECOND CATEGORY. Whoa, that was hard, eh? For instance, this. Its not a bad Instructable, sure, what what the heck is it doing in the science section? How about the ginger beer instructable? Or smart LED's? Or a coding machine? I want, and I'm sure others want, more Egbert and Nurdrage styled instructables, with cool stuff that makes us go "Whoa" and want to do it ourselves, not some of the random junk that people seem to throw in to get an extra 3 hits.

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.

Project for vector calculus

Hello there, So, for my project in Vector Calculus: The suggestion is that we pick a certain "curve" within a country road. We are to log longitude, latitude and altitude while we drive this "curve" for approximately 15-20 seconds. With the data from the latitude-longitude-altitude "logger", we are to perform the various vector calculus principles we have learned in class. Instead of driving the road, I would like to attach whatever latitude-longitude-altitude logger to a boomerang, and get my curve through flight. Does anyone know which sensor I should be looking for? A bit about me: I am currently an electrical engineering technician in product development for a motor-controls company. I mostly test hardware/software, which is designed by our in-house engineers. I am very comfortable with soldering, visual inspection of PCBs, schematics, and general electrical engineering knowledge. Does anyone have a feasible idea for getting a gps unit onto a boomerang, and be ale to transmit the data to me in real-time? Thanks in advance.

LED project

I am looking to create  an array of LED's attached to switches. There will be 14 LED's in total. 3 green LED's attached to a single 2-way switch, 8 red LED's attached in pairs to 4 3-way switches, and 3 white LED's attached to 3 more 2-way switches (3 seperate 1 switch:1 LED set ups. Nothing wierd or fancy there). I'd like it all to run off a single power source, light powered would be best, but if that turns out to be too complicated I'll settle for battery powered. My questions are: What kind of power source will I need to use? How is the best way to wire it? and What sort of equipment will I need (resistors, capacitors, etc)?

Rockoon Project

I've seen many high altitude balloon projects and many rocketry projects on the web.  These seem to be pretty established hobbies. The I got to wondering if anyone out there had ever heard of any amateur rockoon projects? If you haven't heard of a rockoon, it is a combination of the word "rocket" and "balloon".  The concept is that a balloon is used to tow a rocket to a high altitude and then lauched. When I've searched around, most of the references I find are to the use of rockoons by Van Allen (of radiation belt fame)in the course of his research back in the 1950's.  The only thing close to anything like an amateur attempt that I found on the web was by a group called JP Aerospace back in the 90's. I'm not necessarily contemplating any such project myself, I just find it a fascinating possiblity.   And like the many amateur high altitude balloon lauches and high power rocketry, it is amazing what people put together.  I wonder if it would be feasible for a high altitude balloon plus high powered model rocket to ever technically reach the internationally recognized altitude of ~100km considered "outer space". I know that both high altitude balloons and high powered rocketry have their own FAA (or equivalent agency) approval hoops to jump through. Perhaps they just wouldn't allow it, or it would be so much red tape that no one attempts it. Even a low altitude rockoon, of a small ~3ft diameter weather balloon towing a standard model rocket would be an interesting project, for the technical challenge of pulling it off successfully. Anyway, if anyone has ever heard of amateur rockoon attempts or your own musings on the topic, I'd be interested in hearing about it!

What's your Science Fair project?

So, this is how our science fair project for the elementary school science fair turned out. Everyone should be encouraged at a young age to have an interest in science. As they say, "If you ain't having fun in science(or any other subject), you ain't!" This was crafted from paper mache(monocoque nose shell over a cardboard superstructure), laminated cardboard eyeglass frame, and homemade science fair display board.We thought about everyone wanting to touch the display so we put black yarn in the open nostrils below to simulate nose hair if someone decided to pick this nose. We couldn't add slime. Gross-out factor is high in the fun quotient. Remember, you can pick your friends; you can pick your nose; but you can't pick your friend's nose... It would be great if we could see what everyone else worked on. Of course we need ideas to top this one for next year's project! Edit 5/20/08Yay! Caitlin was co-winner for first place in the Fourth Grade Science Fair at school. The other girl won for testing to see if different strengths of Listerine actually helped kill germs in the mouth by doing swabs and cultures. Congrats to the young ones.

This time we're taking a look at someone in the audio realm: Eric Church from Moog. You've probably never heard of Eric, but he is pushing the boundaries of the sounds a guitar can make with sensoriactuators. Don't worry about the big word there, what's important are the spacey and atmospheric effects that it helps to create, even with a regular acoustic guitar. It's a bit of mad science, truly.

Integrating Highschool Sciences

Irene Duke, Kate Hoff, Lyndsay Carlisle and myself are participating in the MIT course 11.124, _Introduction to Teaching and Learning Science and Mathematics_. We have a variety of teaching interests: Irene hopes to teach chemistry, Kate to teach Physics, myself Physics or Mathematics and Lyndsay hopes to teach social justice / political history. Provided Make magazines as inspiration, we were tasked to design a joint activity, merging four high school classes of these topics for a period of weeks or months. We developed the ideas described in this first entry over the course of a class period. Hopefully, we'll take the time to expand each step into an instructable, possibly including trials by fire teaching 8th-11th graders. The material is structured by conservation of energy and resources, inspired by the articles of Tim Andersen. The final demonstration we envision motivates the particular material we wanted from each field. A bicycle wheel is drives an alternator transforming mechanical energy into electrical. The electrical energy is used to run a electrolysis process, rendering separate measurable quantities of Hydrogen and Oxygen. The Hydrogen and Oxygen are then combusted for the students. The amount of mechanical energy can be measured, as can the electrical. The binding energy of H_2O can be used to determine the chemical potential energy rendered. Finally, the combustion both demonstrates the energy's new form, and the difficulties in storing energy. The difference between power and energy underlies all of these experiments. Conservation of linear momentumn should be a familiar topic with the students. Conservation of angular momentumn can easily be introduced at this point, demonstrated with the bicycle and a fly wheel. Chaning the orientation of the wheel can be exteremely difficult. For the chemical portion of the experiment, stoicheometry should be familiar to establish the link between the amount of gas generated and the energy invested. The most appropriate mathemetical tools are statistical. Sampling, linear regression and averaging would prove useful throughout the experiments. Global economic relationships leading up from the colonial period would perhaps be the most applicable topic form history or the social sciences. Though not a technical detail, an important aspect of executing such an idea involves the actual deployment of resources. Students could, for example be broken up by their topic of interest, whether it be the physical, chemical or social aspects of the project. Next, new groups would be formed with one or two members from each subject area. These groups could then attempt to execute the design from the first slide, or one which is similar. Throughout, the students will present their thoughts or understanding to the teacher. This design project should perhaps be phrased as simply turning mechanical energy into hydrogen. Students with social scientific background might be responsible for estimating the costs of the implementation in different settings, and that would be used to drive a larger scale version. So, before getting started on building and documenting this project, do people have suggestions? What worked to combine the physical sciences for you? What might have worked?

Sciences PI Plate

Hi every ones, I'm a young engenner in plant biotechnology. On my free time i try to create an open source plate for the Raspberry pi which has lots of functionality very usefull for science project (Plant growing, Invitro cell, hydroponic control, compotemental study...)

Are Science and Engineering skills are required?

First of all, hi everyone, I'm new to the forums and this is my first post so bear with me if my questions are strange! I've been taking glances at the projects in Instructables, and I am really happy to find a site that shared my passion in home science/technology/DIY projects! I am studying Physics (first year) at my city's University (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece) and I was always fascinated by science, technology and especially computers-electronics. Instructables' projects 'pushed' me to get some basic tools (A 25 W soldering iron, a soldering pump, a pair of 'helping hands' with a magnifying glass, screwdrivers, wire cutters, wire strippers, some other basic tools and recently a Dremel 300) and frequently, I've been trying some of the simpler projects. But, since science will be my future profession, I'm not content by just reading instructions and following through...I want to understand the principles behind the instructables (for example, electronics) and even make my own small projects at home. As I said, electronics/electrical engineering projects are kind of my favorite, and I often get frustrated by just blindly following through the instructable, and I ask myself 'how did he think about that' or 'how did he know how to build this circuit' or 'how did he choose his materials'. So, do you really have to be an engineer to plan the more advanced -electronics or not- projects or can anybody get a book/website and learn about those skills? I often get ideas about projects of my own, but I don't know how to choose materials for them...does this skill come from experience or gained by an engineering degree? Is Physics a good enough degree to help me with my projects? And another question that has been around my head for a while: do you actually get pen and paper, lay down designs and scientific formulas-calculations to build a more advanced project? Thank you!

Computer Science Project: Automated Follow Spot

Hi all!  This is my first post on instructables. I've been using this website for years to facilitate many projects, however this is the first time I'll actually be posting any questions of my own on the forums! Exciting! I'll cut to the chase, for my computer science A - Level I am required to complete a programming project, complex enough to get me a good grade, but feasible enough to actually complete! I decided to take a more practical approach and have arrived at the decision to make a robot of some kind. As I'm heavily involved with the drama department in the school I wanted to create something that could also help them. I decided upon an automated device that can use some form of trilateration to determine the position of a person on stage and then position a light to light them up. For those who have more experience in the world of technical theatre, I'm talking about an Automated follow spot. For those who don't here is a link to a wiki page.    The premise being that a person normally has to control a follow spot, pointing it at the person (or people) on stage, to light them up. An issue we have is that sometimes we don't have enough stage hands to operate the follow spots, which means they're left by the wayside. My idea will negate the need to have a human operator and should simply follow the person around the stage. The main idea at the moment is to use a single long range bluetooth transmitter, attached to a wristband (which would be worn by the actor/actress) and have three long range receivers, which in conjunction can trilaterate the position of the actor/actress and position the light to illuminate them. I have a couple of  questions: 1. Firstly, is this feasible? This is a project that I really want to see through to fruition, especially as it will count towards my final A-level. For someone of my level of knowledge/experience - is this possible? 2. What would be the best method for transmitting the radio signal? Bluetooth sprung to mind instantly, but is this the best option? I know there might be potential pitfalls in that a theatre is full of metal items and interfering signals that could disrupt this, so are there any better alternatives? I know there are only two questions for now, but I've only just started the design of the project. I'm sure when I get seriously into it I'll have many many more, but I trust that the good people of instructables will be able to provide some help! Thanks again, Eliot C-Hill
