Science Project Topics...Choosing a Science Category
Before you search for science project topics, the first step is choosing a science category. Here you
will find a brief description of the major science project categories to help narrow your search. You should also
do some research on your own into any area that's seems especially interesting, to learn more about
Here are the steps you should follow in developing your science project...
Some General Areas Of Science
Astronomy: The study of the
celestial bodies. These include the stars, planets, moons, meteors, and comets. Astronomy science fair projects page.
Biology: The study of all
living things. How they grow, feed, reproduce, and evolve. Visit my biology science fair projects page to see some ideas for projects.
Chemistry: The study of the
composition of substances, synthesis of different compounds, reactions, analyzing materials. Everything from
plastics to medicines involves chemistry in some way. Visit my ideas for chemistry science fair projects page to see some of the types of
projects you can do in this field of science.
Earth Science: The study of
weather, climate, rocks, minerals, soils, fossil remains. Earth science fair projects page.
Electronics: The study of the
conduction and control of electricity through different materials. Electricity science fair projects page.
Engineering: Involves the
designing of machines and processes with different types of materials
Science: The study of pollution and its effects on the environment. Environmental science fair projects page.
Mathematics: Deals with numbers
and shapes to study relationships about quantities that can be measured
Physics: The branch of science
that studies matter and energy. Light, sound, motion, electricity, and magnetism are all studied in physics.

Do Some Research Into Science Project Categories
Have a notebook handy and as you look into the different sciences more, write down any ideas that interest you
about that subject. Look in encyclopedias, books, magazines, and search the web. This will give you a better idea
what each area of science involves.
Remember at this point we are searching for the general area of science that seems most interesting to you. We
are not quite ready yet to pick a project. The next step will be looking at science project ideas within that one
branch of science you choose. It could be that you decide engineering is your subject. We will then find
interesting science project ideas in that field to further narrow your search to find that one project for you.
