What is "weathering"? Demonstrate how it happens to mountains
When rocks are worn down by water, wind, or other means, that is weathering. Soil is made up of weathered rock particles, so without weathering, there would be no soil. Try the following activities to see how rocks can weather.
How can we forecast the weather?
using this equipment, you will show how it is possible to forecast the weather up to 48 hours in advance: # thermometer # barometer (recording barometer would be the best type) # weather vane # anemometer # weather charts # hygrometer # paper and pencil for notes.
Migration of Monarch butterflies and global warming
This science fair project was conducted to find out how global warming will affect the survival of Monarch butterflies.
A comparison of the thermal insulation properties of different clothing materials
This science fair project was conducted to compare the thermal insulation properties of clothes that are made of different materials (wool, cotton, polyester, flannel and Gore-Tex).
Riding the slope
This experiment was conducted to compare cycling and running on slopes of different gradients. The tests were done by choosing 5 paths that were flat, 10 degrees inclined, 20 degrees inclined, 30 degrees inclined and 40 degrees inclined.
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.
Do homing pigeons find their way home more quickly at different times of the day?
This experiment was conducted to examine if the time of the day will affect the speed at which a homing pigeon will find its way back home Testing was done by measuring and comparing the flight time of a homing pigeon in the morning and afternoon.
Color and depth of water
This experiment was conducted to determine how the depth of water can affect the visibility of colors. The experiment was done by taking photos of various colored balls (i.e. red, yellow, green, and blue) at depths of 5 meters, 10 meters, 15 meters and 20 meters underwater.
Tennis court surface type and game speed
We've heard that some types of tennis courts are "faster" than others. Why are some competitions played on hard courts (eg. U.S. Open), whilst others (eg. Wimbledon) are played on grass? This science fair project was performed to determine how the surface of a tennis court affects the speed of the game. Testing was done on a clay, grass and asphalt tennis court surfaces.
Do singers have a larger lung capacity than non-singers?
This experiment was done to find out if the members of a choir group have a bigger lung capacity than non-singers of the same age group.
