What are the winning science fair projects for high school? Insider Monkey recently published an article in which we can find the great answers for this question. Nowadas children are overburdoned, they have to cope with lots of tasks, lots of subjects to learn, and they pressure on them is big.
Actually all of had our favorite subject at school. Some of us liked history and languages, while others devoted to maths, phisycs or chemics. As for me, I have never been interested in any science subjects, I loved history, literature and languages. If you are a high school student who loves science, then you probably have experience with science fair projects. Without a further ado, let’s check three of the projects Insider Monkey has invetigated for us.
The first project can be Resistivity: Which metal is the best conductor? Electrical resistance is the total opposition to the passage of electric current, and it depends on the material and length of what the current is passing through. Therefore, the number varies depending on where is resistance measured. In this experiment, you can calculate resistivity and conductivity of the materials you choose, for example, copper, and you can do that by applying Ohm’s law. The goal is to calculate which material is more resistive and conductive and for this project, you will need lots of wires, copper, and iron. The second one is a very interesting project: Choice blindness: What do we really want? This experiment is very interesting as it deals with the phenomenon that is choice blindness or situations where people are blind to their own choices and they can actually confirm decisions they didn’t make. This experiment’s goal is to determine whether choice blindness occurs more often with men or women. The last one for today: How do changes in acidity affect survival? In this project, your aim is to determine how does a change in acidity affect the survival of an invertebrate population, or in this case, shrimps. I think, all the projects are extremely interesting and they are worth trying them. Now, it’s your turn to pick one (or maybe more) and take it to your school!
