FUN SCIENCE FAIR PROJECTS
1. Pop Bottle Science Each experiment begins with a challenge and ends with an explanation of the scientific principles involved. Kids can design a volcano and watch it erupt. Create a tornado-maker and see how twisters work. Make quicksand–is it solid or liquid? Observe photosynthesis in action. Simulate Jupiter’s giant red spot, investigate buoyancy, demonstrate inertia, and discover the Bernoulli principle–which allows planes to fly. Plus, turn the bottle into a barometer, a thermometer, walkie-talkie, trombone, compass–or groovy lava lamp and many more.
2. The Everything Kids’ Science Experiments Book: Boil Ice, Float Water, Measure Gravity-Challenge the World Around You! (Everything Kids Series)
You’ll discover answers to questions like:
Is it possible to blow up a balloon without actually blowing into it?
What’s inside coins?
Can a magnet ever be “turned off”?
Do toilets always flush in the same direction?
Can a swimming pool be cleaned with just the breath of one person?
3. Tamiya Solar Car Assembly Model Kit – 76001 Introduce how solar energy works. Great for new inspring engineers to build one themselves.
4. Science Experiments You Can Eat: Revised Edition Your kitchen will be transformed into a laboratory worthy of a mad scientist as you make startling discoveries about how cabbage can detect acid, how bacteria makes yogurt, and how decomposed sugar turns to caramel. Then after a long day at the lab you can relax and eat your results: soup, biscuits, pretzels, cupcakes, or cookies.
5. Galileo FS-80 800 x 80mm Yoke Mount Reflector Telescope The Galileo FS-80 reflector telescope is a great beginner’s reflecting telescope. Galileo Trilogy software includes instructional videos and Planetarium program to help you pinpoint any star or planet at any given time.
6. Prize-Winning Science Fair Projects for Curious Kids Fifty experiments in biology, the physical sciences, and chemistry are presented in an attractive and easy-to-follow format and illustrated with sharp photographs of children and of the materials needed.
7. Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments: All Lab, No Lecture (DIY Science) The Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments steps up to the plate with lessons on how to equip your home chemistry lab, master laboratory skills, and work safely in your lab. The bulk of this book consists of 17 hands-on chapters that include multiple laboratory sessions.
8. Wind Power Generator Set This educational assembly kit lets you explore the mechanisms involved in the harnessing of wind power. Witness the conversion of wind power into working electricity!
9. Big Bertha Rocket Kit Estes Over the decades this is the first big rocket for many modelers! Slow, realistic lift-offs from this true classic!
10. The Eco System Worm Farm: Hoedown Underground – The Eco System Worm Farm: Hoedown Underground Traverse the fascinating underground world of worms with this hoedown habitat. Grow a miniature garden for the worms and observe as they eat, breed, and tunnel through the soil. Oligochaetology – the study of worms – comes to life with this young naturalist kit.
