A list of potential questions to investigate, (considered middle school level).
 
A list of potential questions to investigate, (high school level).
 
A great spot for well written ideas.... Remember that you MUST base it off of a QUESTION that you can TEST.
A science research site that discusses the branches of science and provides a few ideas along with ways of coming up with your own idea.
This web site tends to have projects that are a little too simple.
 
Another page of possibilities.
