High School Science Projects
This section includes high school science projects to challenge your science students. Magnets, chemical reactions, water testing, plant fertilizer testing, sports science projects and chemistry projects are some of the topics included here.
Specifically, the first article in this section of four includes projects on creating DNA models and conducting sports, environmental and consumer projects. The articles that follow include projects on testing water from different places, conducting environmental and magnet projects, and analyzing seasonal weather changes.
With the projects in the four articles listed here, students can make silly putty to learn about types of polymers and burn metals to observe signature colors and to create items such as spray cologne and lip gloss. To introduce science engineering to students, try the balsa wood towers project. Or, when teaching high school biology, consider the ecology projects presented in the last article in this section; the projects included involve pond organisms and food webs.
Student projects aren't complete without a student presentation. Allowing students to share their creations with others serves as a reflection on learning for the students. For the teacher, it's an ideal opportunity for assessment of students' work. Use this reference for assessing students' science fair projects. The ideas presented here will contribute to an ideal closing for a dynamic project experience.
