The Question

(Submitted May 09, 1997)

Do you have any neat astronomy science fair project ideas? Do you recommend any books to find some?

The Answer

There are so many science fair ideas that it is impossible to provide a list in a reasonable amount of space. Besides, the best kind of science fair ideas (or any other ideas for that matter) are the ones you come up with yourself. If you are having trouble, there are several books on the subject, and there are quite a few web sites which are relevant, for example:

http://dir.yahoo.com/Science/Education/K_12/Fairs_and_Competitions/
http://botw.org/top/Science/Education/Science_Fairs/

However, I would encourage you not to simply copy from these sources, but to think about interesting variations on them.

I hope this helps!
