    Hi, I am currently a grade 10 student doing the IB program at my high school (http://www.ibo.org/diploma/curriculum/) and I need to do a science fair project suitably advanced for the program. One of the topic areas is biology. I was hoping for some advice on experiments or demonstrations. All responses will be most welcome.

    So, you don't really know what you wanna do for that fair? There are sooo many projects that can be done. My advice, prioritize. Instead just asking people to tell you good experiments, do a bit of research so you can figure out what is that you find the most interesting. Good luck on your fair

    I already suggested a few ideas to my teacher, (it can be either Chem or bio) and they never went over too well, I suggested recreating Greek Fire or ancient Chinese gunpowder and demonstrating in a cleared out parking lot. He flipped and now I'm considering a new perspective to take on this but am just looking for some ideas.

    This is an experiment I did and really liked.

    Take zebra fish eggs and study their development using a light microscope. Since zebra fish eggs are transparent you can actually see the different stages of the zebra fish embryo. What we did is we then put some eggs in ethanol and nicotine solutions and studied how the embryos were different from the normal eggs. I don't remember the concentrations that we put in the water though, sorry.

    PS: This might be expensive as you need an aquarium and zebra fish.
