Magnetic levitating Globe. Use a ball made of styrofoam put magnets in it. Then get a platform made of anything i.e. cardboard, foam, etc. and put magnets in it to so the magnets on the styrofoam will repel the magnets at the bottom making the styrofoam ball levitate. You can also colour, to make it look like i.e. mars, earth, jupiter,sun,etc.
make a bowl with a barrier in the middle of it so cereal goes on one side in the bowl and milk in the other. Therefore you can put your cereal in the milk when you want and it wont get soggy. I did this in my 5th grade project and it was great. I named it the superbowl
Do you really want an easy science fair project or do you want a "fun" project? I would suggest that you find a project that interests you or that answers a question you want to know the answer to. For instance, have you ever wondered if it really makes a difference whether you actually put the twisty-tie back on the bread or if you just spin it around and tuck it under? You could answer this question by getting three loaves of bread, one to spin, one to twisty-tie, and one left open (as a control) and then see how quickly each of them goes stale.
The purpose of a science project is to learn to answer questions using the scientific method. So, find a question you want answered, create a hypothesis and develop a simple experiment to test your hypothesis.
Other questions you might try to answer are:
Do plants really die when you water them with water that was heated in the microwave? Does mayonnaise need to be refrigerated? How much do certain video games increase people's heart rate (on average)? Which laundry detergents get stains out the best?
Organize three types of breakfast with about the same number of calories - one mainly protein, one mostly carbohydrates and one mostly fats. Ask your test subject to consume one of the breakfasts over several days and then note the first time in the day he or she feels hungry. Conventional wisdom used to be that a calorie is a calorie, but does what you eat affect your appetite? Look at different type of breakfast bars or change the composition of a trail mix to change the proportion of fat/protein/carbs.
Do sound. Look up facts about sound and how it travels n' stuff. Tell different ways to make sound ex.) music. For display make a guitar made of paper towel rolls, rubber bands, pencils and a shoe box.
Hello! I recently had a science project due. My teacher recommended a website with tons of great ideas on science projects. They vary from from all different fields from physical science to engineering. There are also different levels of difficulty and grade level. There is a list of materials, cost, procedures, and safety. Click on the link below to find the perfect project for you.:
Ok this one will cost $7 you will need paper flour tissue cloth table first you get the flour and put it on the straw the flour are the germs you will blow it on the table and see how far germs spread then do the same with a cloth and a tissue not a winning one but you will get at least a B-

I think JeffWilhite is exactly right. The whole purpose is to get you interested in science, technology, engineering or math. Pick something that interest YOU and don't be afraid that what you picked is too easy or not flashy enough. It's what you learn that matters. It's also important that you can give a good talk about your project that shows that you learned something and your project led to that knowledge.
A lot of these other answers are trying to be helpful but they are too quick and easy. Picking a good project isn't necessarily going to be easy -- unless you already have a strong interest in a subject. Good luck, learn something, and have fun.

If you are a Physics lover this is what we did in 1974. I'm sure just like fashion it can be recycled and fun.
1; It is an instrument just think 'Anemometer' 2; Function; Beautography just think 'Electrocardiography' 3; Output; Beautogram just think 'Plethysmogram' 4; Function; to measure in SI unit how beautiful a high school girl is just think 'How hot is your arm-pit' 5; Range of scale; Absolute zero to most superlatives of all beauties just think 'Absolute zero Kelvin to water freezing point' 6; Principle; Photo Voltaic Cell. Somehow old fashioned considering modern Technology
If you want to win the prize never invite Physics Students for they will all score max despite themselves and that is inviting trouble with Art Students at least in my days.
Blow up a balloon, then hold the tip so air doesn't come out (don't tie it)! Then boil water to make sure it is hot, then place the balloon into the hot water, will it expand or get smaller? Do it to find out, next you take the same balloon and place it into ice water, watch it change sizes
Here is an easy one: Get a plastic food storage container and make sure the lid is on tight, put it on a big tray.Then cut a hole in the bottom. Next fill the bottom with baking soda (If you want it to be a volcano, draw on the container to make it look like one and dye the vinegar red with food color before you put it in) When it's time, pour the vinegar into the hole. It will explode!
Here is a really fun one I did in sixth grade: you find out how cars work and then build your own little car that can actually move around. It sounds hard but with a little help you can do it easy... And seriously impress your class
easy? well the first that comes to my mind is take three basins of water, fill one with hot water, one with cold water, and tap water(room temp).one hand in hot the other in cold and then at the same time put both hands in the tap water. u will realise the one in the cold feels warm, vica-versa
1.- Put some big marshmallows in the microwave and look how it is growing really big. 2.- Make a prism with a dish full of water, a mirror inside at 30º or 35º and sunlight (very important). There are two reflections, one is completely white and the another is full of colors (project the reflection full of colors in a white screen hidden in a dark zone). 3.- Attach with thread, a metallic clip at a base and fix a magnet with wood (maybe sticks) and glue or nails directly up of the metallic clip. Reduce the lenght of thread until the clip remain floating between the magnet and the base.
make some experiments on some recyclable materials and see what good and reproductive uses they can do, especially to the environment. Earth is one precious planet wherein life is abundant. Let us not put this into waste...

Outline the USA on art paper and make some dough out of water and flour and make it sorta thick now get an book that shows the USA and where the big mountains are at. Draw all the states and put their names on it and where the big mountains are at put the dough on the map the way the picture shows you where the mountains are. Put a little glue on the bottom of the dough so this will help the dough to stick to the paper. Use the thick art paper a large one so you can do all this drawing on it and making the mountains on it. You have to carry this flat so you will not lose any of your mountains on it. Make sure you make the mountains tall not flat.

I have a great idea. How about Flubber (means flying rubber), from the Disney movies - The Absent-Minded Professor (1961) and its sequel Son of Flubber (1963) both starring Fred MacMurray from the 1960s TV sitcom "My Three Sons", and also its 1997 theatrical film remake of the project with Robin Williams. Here's the recipe according to a March 1961 TIME magazine issue from the Walt Disney Studios special effects department: To one pound of salt water taffy add one heaping tablespoon polyurethane foam, one cake crumbled yeast. Mix till smooth, allow to rise. Then pour into saucepan over one cup cracked rice mixed with one cup water. Add topping of molasses. Boil till it lifts and says 'Qurlp' Oh and by the way, Flubber is a type of goo-ish green type of rubber toy (like in the remake) that not only bounces high up in the air (use it as a trick to teach a bully a lesson of anti-bullying) but it also magically flies a car like an airplane and the Universal film E.T., and if you make it the best place to do that is your backyard. And wear anti-toxic suits to prevent you from getting burnt too.
Do you like insects? My sister once went to http://www.insectlore.com/ got caterpillars from this site it might take some time to get and her class watched them turn into butterflies. Then after they turned into butterflies and her science fair project was all over she released them.
A Bouncing egg will be cool and easy to make it.take an egg .put it in a glass of vinegar .After one week,take it and see.the colour was changed.it will bounce if you put it down.easy to make and was suprising.
Well, this is pretty easy. It's called a volcano xD.
You take a bottle, I suggest getting a large coke bottle, filled up. Grab mentos and tinfoil, because the explosion will be big. Go to dollerama or any store that sells food colouring and buy red, orange & yellow dye. Also buy a big foam sheet so it prevents the explosion for leaking everywhere. Or, if you can, go outside. Glue the bottom of the bottle on the middle of the foam sheet and paint the rest of the sheet in anyway. I recommend doing a winter or summer scene. For winter just buy some toy wolves about 1-5, and place them in a corner or something. For summer, just paint the foam sheet green with trees and stuff. Or, you can mix dark brown paint with white and a light brown, so it looks like a desert and place animals everywhere. Or, instead of the coke in the bottle, put water and baking soda and then the mentos. Test it out before you do the water one. Put the dye in the coke/ water and then shape the tinfoil so it fits on the volcano. Paint the tinfoil brown with trickles of red and your done :)
MY SPACE PROJECT do it about space there are some kind of space circles in Kmart ( in the toy section ) you can buy there really cool and they glow in the dark and you can hang them somewhere, i made this space project and i hanged the space thingy's inside a box put glitter, stars and some rock, painted the rocks gold and i was done? it was awesome!! it was pretty simple i made it in two days it might seem a little long but it looked great!
My kids just picked theirs. One is:will bananas turn brown faster in the refrigerator or on the counter? That one is self explanatory. The other is: Which keeps cut flowers fresher longer: warm or cold water? Put blue food coloring in a glass of cold water, and red food coloring in warm water, and white carnations in both glasses. Which flower "drinks" the water faster (which one turns color faster)? That one keeps flowers fresher longer.
