Middle School Science Projects

If you are on the search for a middle school science project you are probably looking for something that is a little more interesting than the average baking soda volcano.  Well, have no fear; there are plenty of options out there that will please your child as well as their science teacher.

If you have a music lover, you may want to consider something like “music vs. noise”.  Most children love music, which makes this an interesting experiment for them.  However, you should take care to actually base your experiment on facts rather than opinions.

There are countless projects related to eggs.  Some of which include; floating eggs, sinking eggs, egg in a bottle, egg spinning, the egg drop, and the process of eggs turning into chicks.  Not only is this group fun for students, but eggs a relatively low in cost, so if you need to start over, it will not be as disheartening.

Weather is also an interesting category.  You can choose from things like tornados, hurricanes, thunder, lightening, rain, hail, and fog.  Learning how each element forms and the effects that it has on the environment around it are great project ideas.

This is only a small sampling of middle school science projects.  There are many resources available to help you find the best project for your child.

If you’re looking for a ready made experiment, get one of our Science Project guides. They’ll take you step by step through the experiments, all of which follow the scientific method.
