Great Science Projects To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science." Albert Einstein and Leopold Infeld. The Evolution of Physics. London: Cambridge University Press, 1938.) Kids science: Electricity 102 Science >> Physics for Kids Important things to know about electricity? Conductors and insulators - Conductors are materials that allow electricity to flow easily. Most types of metal are good conductors, which is why we use metal for electrical wire. Copper is a good conductor and isn't too expensive, so it's used a lot for the wiring in homes today.

List of Science Fair Ideas Okay, here is the hardest part of the whole project...picking your topic. But here are some ideas to get you started. Even if you don't like any, they may inspire you to come up with one of your own.

If we do not have a camera, we can remember the circuit by drawing a sketch. Look at the sketch below which Farrah drew of the circuit that you made in the activity with the paperclip switch.

Science Fair Project Resource Guide Finding an idea for your project can be the hardest part. Many students have sent us questions on topic ideas. Ideas for science fair projects can come from many sources, of course, but the following sites are great places to start to look for topic ideas! That Thing There: Paper Circuit Projects from Maker Faire Detroit 2013 These are the "card" projects that I had at Maker Faire Detroit. I'm dividing the projects in two or three posts because I want to show the circuit paths both with and without notes and I didn't want the length of the post to get too unwieldy. Two quick notes: I took these pictures after Maker Faire and after they were abused examined many times over so they may look a little tired but that's because they are. However, this speaks to the hardiness of these structures. Also, all of these use Jie Qi's ingenious paper battery holder. The link takes you to a page where she generously provides a PDF of the holder to cut out and use as well as a link to a tutorial.
