Cool Science Projects for the Science Fair

By: diane

I was under the impression they were supposed to be cool science projects, but I just could never get the hang of them. I feel so fortunate to have come across the secret to the coolest projects...

I can still vividly remember the look of disapointment on Bens face. It was my first try at planning a science fair project, but still I really upset my son. I sill feel sad about the whole thing.

It all went wrong and it was all my fault. If I hadn't thought I could be clever and get a free science project online, none of this would have happened. All that time spent planning and preparing, and still a complete faliure...

The free project I grabbed off the Internet was absolutely awful! It seemed that everything that could go wrong, went wrong. The water and salt speedily became insoluble, the balloons burst leaving my kitchen in a awful mess, and I'm not even gonna go into the price of the materials for the experiment.

Thats when the state of affairs elevated. Ok so considering my prior faliure, I went back on the internet and purchased a science package this time. What a complete waste of time and money! I paid $25 for the kit and it was completly useless, they gave us nothing of real value. Oh it was just awful! All they did give was details to a really boring science project and a list of materials adding up to another $40!

The other day I was reading thru a couple of articles on a site that I go to often, when I saw an advertisement. It read: Earn money for charity by writing an article about your experience's with science projects! So I emailed them and said: Hi, I saw your ad and would love to offer my experience and extend advice to other parentd. So here I am.

So lets think for a moment, for the science project we need a...

Now thats hard work, believe me!

But check this out - I recently found a great way to take the pain away. It puts us all in a unique position of being able to actually enjoy ourselves, whilst helping our kids learn science. And for me thats what these science fair projects should be about; associating fun with learning. You see, I never realized this, but these are the most important years of our child's life. Why? Because at this age they're minds are extremely susceptible to the emotions that they feel. All we need to do is increase that link between fun and learning and I'm told our kids are guaranteed to achieve more in later life; as they will grow up loving to learn.

What I found even more amazing was that in goes so much further than this. It is now believed that it has good effects in other parts of their lives as well. Not only will they become more acadmically active they will also become better in social situations. Wow!

A few weeks ago the time for preparation for the science fair finally arrived. My son came to me at the breakfast table and said, "Mom can we do a this year"? I told him I would make sure we do. Yet I had no idea how I would make it happen considering I could no longer rely on the internet! A couple of days past and I was really nervous. I couldn't find anything off line that looked as if it would actually work. And the idea of it going wrong again was eating me inside.

Well I was very impressed with the kit. It gave us the detailed explanation to a winning science project and it all worked out great!

Well, thats it, my search is over I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed with most of what I found, and I advice you to exercise extreme caution before investing time and money into a science project! Whatever you do, I wish you and your kid a fun and healthy year to come.
