What Do I Do for a Science Fair?

The answer is left open ended on purpose! Be creative, search for ideas. If you have a few general ideas in mind, just wait for the judging rubric to come out and see what will fit best! Your entry has to demonstrate a scientific principle, but the more creative the method, the better! You're welcome to invent something new or a model, and explain what scientific concepts it uses, or you're welcome to do a lab demonstrating a principle. The goal will be to construct/demonstrate a interesting scientific concept through a creative demo, model, etc. and present it through the concepts of science. As long as it connects back to science and you created the project, it's fair game!
