The relationship between the shape of a parachute and its drop velocity
This science fair project was performed to investigate the relationship between the shape of a parachute and its drop velocity. Triangular, square, rectangular and round parachutes were used.
Hydropower versus wind power
This science fair project was performed to compare the efficiency of hydro-electric generated power and wind generated power.
Comparing the effectiveness of ionizing and photoelectric smoke detectors
This science fair project was conducted to compare the performance of an ionizing smoke detector with a photoelectric smoke detector. The tests were done by placing a lighted cigarette at 200mm, 400mm, 600mm, 800mm and 1000mm from the smoke detectors, and comparing the speed of each detector in detecting the smoke emitted.
Crosswinds and bridge stability
This science fair project attempts to investigate how bridges are affected by crosswinds. The experiment was performed using model bridges with open sides, bridges with 50% side-coverage and 100% side-coverage.
Thermal aging and alloys
This science fair project was performed to understand the effect of thermal aging on the hardness of various alloys. The science project experiment was done using a nickel alloy, titanium alloy and steel.
How effective are automobile sunshades
This science fair project was conducted to compare the effectiveness of different types of sunshades in reducing the temperature inside a car. The tests were done without a sunshade, with a reflective sunshade made from plastic air bubble insulating material, and a reflective foam sunshade.
How hand-Eye coordination is influenced by age
This experiment was performed to find out how hand-eye coordination improves as we grow older.
This experiment was done to create a lifter based on the Biefeld-Brown effect.
Is the size of a tornado affected by water temperature?
The purpose of this experiment is to determine the relationship between water temperature and diameter of the tornado’s core.
Does sambucus extract help cure the flu?
This science project was performed to investigate whether Sambucus extract really does help to cure the common flu, as claimed by its manufacturers. Flu patients were given a placebo, vitamin C and Sambucus (elderberry) extracts in order to observe whether they reacted differently to each of these.
