    Hi, i'm a High School student who is currently doing the IB program (http://www.ibo.org/diploma/curriculum/). It's my first year doing IB, and for my project I need to do something suitably advanced for a Grade 10. i have several months to plan for this and just recieved the approval form a few days ago and it needs to be submitted in January. could I please have some help in selecting an experiment, all responses will be most appreciated.

    I have a friend in IB. It sounds pretty demanding. Try doing a google search and see what you come up with. If you have any specific questions on anything you may find, feel free to ask them here and someone may be able to help you. See what you can come with first on your own though.

    I did come up with a few things when my teacher first mentioned it. He was not happy though, not so much because they were not advanced but because they wern't suitable. For example when I suggested Greek Fire he though I was joking then he realized I was serious... Needless to say I'm not doing it. So now I'm just looking for some advice and ideas to take a fresh look at it.

    How advanced does it have to be? You could just calculate the concentration of calcium in milk using a titration for example. Or if you want something more complicated you could extract a compound from a mixture (How you do this depends on which compound your separating from what mixture). You could even make a compound if you want but that seems too advanced for a grade 10.
