Writing about Science Projects

guest scientistFour articles of mine have recently been posted online:

Middle School Science Projects: Finding a middle school science project that meets all these criteria has always been a challenge for our family. Our teachers wanted an experiment based, investigative project for the science fair. Middle School science teachers want creative ideas, specific elements, in depth research, and detailed logs of the whole science fair process.

Fifth Grade Science Projects that Rock: A Fifth Grade Science Project can be one of the most fun school projects that a parent and child can do together. Here are some really good science project ideas that are easy enough to do, yet meet the requirements of most science fairs and most fifth grade teachers. These are investigative science projects, which involve a science experiment.

Science Project Boards that Aren’t Boring: Kids’ science projects aren’t finished until the last letter is glued onto the science board. After the science project is finished, you want it to look its very best for the science fair! You really want the project to reflect how hard your kids have worked.

Science Fair Projects to Make Everybody Happy: Science fair projects – Kids think they should be fun. Teachers think they should be educational. Parents just want them to be fast and easy. Since students, teacher and parents are all involved in the process of getting ready for the science fair, most of the time, science projects have to be all of the above!

Find your project now – and be finished by this time tomorrow – by visiting 24 Hour Science Projects.

Just got a note from yet another mom whose kids have won with our science project guides! Note that she’s used them for more than one year – and she only purchased once!

I want to let you know that my boys and I absolutely love these projects. I have two boys who have competed in the science fair for the past four years. Every year but one both of my boys have won and gone to regional, including this year as well. We have fun and enjoy doing the experiments!

Your child can have one of these winning science fair projects from 24 Hour Science Projects. Of course, we can’t guarantee that your project will win, but we do guarantee that you’ll be 100% satisfied with your guides.


Fifth Grade Science Projects that Rock

fifth grade science projectA Fifth Grade Science Project can be one of the most fun school projects that a parent and child can do together. Here are some really good science project ideas that our family has done. The projects are easy to do, yet they meet the requirements of most science fairs and most fifth grade teachers. Check out the ideas, and find out how to get step by step instructions at the end of this article.

Investigative science projects, which involve a science experiment:

Does the shape of ice affect melting time? Use the same amount of water, place into different shaped containers and freeze. Then see how much time each piece of ice takes to melt.

Which toilet tissue is most biodegradable? Take samples of different types of toilet tissue, and soak them until they fall apart. Run the samples through a strainer, and see which sample leaves the most paper undissolved.

Which citrus fruit has the most Vitamin C? Make an indicator solution with iodine and starch (it’s EASY to do!), and test samples of citrus fruit or juice to see which one has the most vitamin C.

Which brand cereal stays crunchy longest? Weigh different brands of the same cereal, soak in water, and then weigh again to see which one absorbed more water.

Demonstration science projects – when your teacher wants you to demonstrate a scientific principle to the class.

Demonstrate that yeast gives of gas. Place a yeast and sugar solution into a bottle, put a balloon on top, and watch the yeast give off gas so that the balloon blows up!

Demonstrate how static electricity works. Make a ball of aluminum foil dance between your finger and a pie plate. Watch this one on YouTube.

Demonstrate how chemical reactions can be sped up. Put alka seltzer into a cup, and watch it fiz. Then do it again with crushed alka seltzer, another time with warm water, and yet another time with TWO alka seltzers.

We’ve done all of these science projects with our four boys, and they are fast, affordable, and easy to design on your own. We also provide illustrated, step by step instructions on these projects at our website! Whatever you do, remember, fifth grade science projects really can be fun and a learning experience at the same time. So grab your slide rule and your test tubes, and get started on your project now!

These projects are all part of 24 Hour Science Project Guides, science projects that are fun, easy, affordable, and teacher pleasing!
