Our science project guides were developed for parents and students who need a great science project, but require a lot of hand holding. Our family agonized for many years to find viable experiments that were affordable, actually worked, yet met the strict guidelines of our schools. The projects in our basic package are all experiment based and follow the scientific method – and many can be done in a 24 hour period if necessary.
Supplies are readily available at grocery or discount stores. We also provide preformatted charts, ready for the data to be entered. With each project, there is a list of resources that will help with research. We also provide great support to our customers, answering any questions they may have – usually within hours. We do not give the hypothesis or real data – the experiment must be done by the student.
Here are our project guides. Information on being our affiliate is here.
24 HOUR SCIENCE PROJECTS – Five experimental projects that can be done in 24 hours.
- UNDERCOVER SNEEZE – Does covering the mouth really help prevent the spread of germs?
- A SLICE OF ICE – Does the shape of ice affect melting time?
- A STRAIGHT FLUSH – Which toilet tissue is most biodegradable?
- A PINCH OF SALT – How does salt affect the boiling point of water?
- VITAMIN “C”ITRUS – Which citrus fruit has the most Vitamin C?
MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE PROJECTS – Five experimental projects designed for the Middle School student. Each project also has a 24 option.
- HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW – Experiment to find how different hair products keep hair from breaking.
- “C” YOU LATER – Test and see if the amount of Vitamin C changes over time. (An easy and fun chemistry project!)
- YEAST – RISING TO THE OCCASION – Find out what makes yeast grow the best. It will grow right before your eyes.
- CHEAP HEATS – Make a solar heater from inexpensive (or recycled!) products.
- THE DIRT ON DIRT – Figure out what kind of soil is in your yard, then do an experiment to see how much water it holds.
WATCH THIS! SCIENCE PROJECTS – Five demonstration projects, for students who must present a scientific concept to their class.
- THE YEAST BEAST – You’ll demonstrate that yeast is alive by watching it blow up balloons!
- I’VE GOT THE POWER! – You’ll explain static electricity, and watch aluminum foil dance!
- OIL AND WATER DO MIX – You’ll prove that you can disprove the old saying!
- THE LAYERED LOOK – You’ll show how one Lego sinks, and another one floats in this amazing lesson on density.
- TIME TO CHANGE – You’ll start a fizzy chemical reaction, then do it again – even faster!
WEEKEND SCIENCE PROJECTS – Five experimental projects that can be completed in a weekend.
- SLIP SLIDING? NO WAY! – Use toy cars to find out about friction!
- EGG-XPERIMENTING! – Take the shell off an egg without boiling, and find out if water will go through the membrane. You’ll have to see this one to believe it!
- DON’T LOSE YOUR COOL – Feeling a bit warm? Which type of insulation works best?
- HEAR, HEAR – Are two ears better than one? Get a group of friends to find out the answer.
- A FLAKY SHOWDOWN – Which brand cereal stays crunchy longest? You’ll love this tasty experiment.
THE NON-SCIENTIFIC PARENT’S GUIDE TO A SCIENCE PROJECT and THE NON-SCIENTIFIC PARENT’S GUIDE TO A SCIENCE PROJECT (MIDDLE SCHOOL EDITION) are free guides that are provided for parents, students and schools. We welcome schools to link to these guides, or to copy them for distribution. Affiliates can request a guide coded with their Clickbank links.
