Next-generation science project ideas
Want to transform your traditional science fair idea into one that fits a next-generation classroom? Check out these examples from Liza Rickey of Sartori Elementary School in Renton, Washington.
- Instead of creating an erupting volcano, design a safety plan for a city that is threatened by an active volcano.
- Instead of growing plants under different lights, focus on how some plants live in areas with little water and design an investigation around that.
- Instead of comparing breads for mold growth, redesign packaging to keep bread fresh longer.
- Instead of testing the speed of a toy car on various ramps, investigate how different wheels affect movement.
