Sports science Science Fair Project

Bouncing Soccer Balls

Bouncing Soccer Balls | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
We'll drop a soccer ball from two meters high and count how many times it bounces on different types of turf. We'll compare the results to see which turf makes the ball bounce the most.


The hypothesis is that a soccer ball will bounce the most number of times on artificial turf.

Method & Materials

You will select three locations with different types of turf, measure the height of the ball, drop it, and count the number of times it bounces.
You will need a soccer ball, a measuring tape, a field of Kentucky bluegrass, a field of Bermuda grass, a field of artificial turf, and an assistant.


The results showed that the soccer ball bounced the most number of times on the artificial turf compared to the Kentucky bluegrass and Bermuda grass turfs.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it shows how the type of turf affects the bounciness of a soccer ball.

Also Consider

Consider repeating the experiment on a hot afternoon and once more on a cold night to compare the results. Also, try repeating the experiment on a soccer field at a higher altitude to see if it makes a difference.
