12 Quick Science Fair Projects You Can Do In A Day

Q: Can I do a science fair project in a day?

A: Yes! There are plenty of quick science experiments and projects you can do.

While some science fair projects require a lot of time, such as observing the behavior of a hamster or growing seeds over a few days, science experiments and projects can also be quick! If you're interested in exploring quick experiments or science projects, check out the science fair project ideas below with varying levels of difficulty to choose from.

These are the fast reactions in our Quick chemistry science fair projects!

1) acid-base reactions: mixing acids with bases quickly makes carbon dioxide gas!

2) chromatography reactions: colors can be separated out!

3) heat reactions: heat speeds things up!
