If you are looking for a cool science experiment, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Frozen bubbles. This can be really fun for the younger age group. Baking soda bubbles is also a neat experiment for the bubble enthusiast.
Food always makes for a cool experiment. Some ideas include making light with fruit, plastic mild, moldy bred, and yeast. You can also make your own butter in a jar and rock candy. While you are considering the food category, why not do an experiment to see how much fat is in the food that you eat.
Experiments with animals are also a big hit. How does variation in temperature affect animals? Do animals prefer certain colors? Do certain sounds deter bugs/and or animals?
Balloons always make cool experiments as well, and there are so many things that you can do with them. Some of the options include; balloon blast off, balloon car, balloon boat, straws and balloons, and balloon columns.
Some other neat miscellaneous experiments include; how water pressure works, using food coloring to change to color of certain flowers, and homemade silly putty.
If you have a young nature enthusiast, you could try making your own little green house in a bottle. You may also want to consider making a fossil for your science project.
There are countless other cool science experiments out there; it just takes a little research to discover the perfect one for your student.
