Did you ever have a science fair at your school when you were a kid? I did, and I loved every second of it. I distinctly remember making a volcano that erupted – I may not have won the science fair, but I did win the attention of every kid in my school. I mean, in 3rd grade, there isn’t anything much cooler than a paper mache volcano spewing baking soda and dish soap everywhere. (Come to think of it, I’m 40 something and I still think that’s pretty damn cool. If you want to make your own, Science Bob will teach you how: Make your Own Volcano – ScienceBob.com)
I love that even to this day, there are still some schools and club who keep the science fair tradition going. If you are looking for some cool science fair projects and ideas, look no further! After helping my niece with her science fair project a few years back (Proud Uncle: She WON!) I decided to compile a list of ideas for the future...and share them all with you! If you find any projects I don’t have listed on there, please send them to me!!
(Side note: I can’t believe how far some of these projects have advanced from my exploding volcano LOL!)
