If you are considering a science-fair project, wonderful!
When I was considering science-fair projects that students might do, I jotted-down a few ideas here. Many students like to come up with their own ideas, and although it is always best to study what is interesting to you, it also helps to listen to the questions that other people ask...maybe some of my thoughts will help spark your research idea. Please feel free to email me (email@example.com) your thoughts at anytime.
