    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone here would mind helping me out. Over the summer, I had to come up with a topic and ten sources of research for a science project. The project counts for 15% of my final grade, so it's a big deal.

    At first, I was interested in watercooling of CPUs, but this seems kind of, well, dumb.

    I recently became interested in superconductivity. I realize the benefits of having an efficient way to utilize a superconductor, but the sophistication, by far, exceeds my level of education.

    I want to do something slightly sophisticated, but within reason. I want to complete a project that is pertinant to the real-world; ie counting leaves on a tree and relating the data to the time of the year will yeild results, but it won't be beneficial in any way. I want to do something interesting and, well, not "leave counting", if you know what I mean.

    If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much for your time.

    btw, I am in grade 12. Thanks!

    How about:

    "Why do scientists seem to be lean fit individuals and the rest of us are well... not"

    Is there a link?

    You could do some behavioural study on your teacher. Observe him like a scientist observes a gorilla in the jungle and write a report about that :>

    Hmmm, how about picking another teacher than the one who is going to give you the mark. Just in case he doesn't appreciate it.

    You could do a reaserch on scramjets, you will get a GOOD mark if that's what you want.

    For something more fun, you have to make a concession.

    Google "scramjet"

    See what it is.

    how about a prject on arson?? give them a scenario and how an addition of a certain chemical/gas could cause an xplosion or a faulty cable etc i thinku will find it ineresting to know that Fire tends to burn upwards and outwards, combustible materials increase the intensity and extent of the fire; fire will rise faster as it gets hotter (look for different temperature conditions).factors such as air currents and obstacles affect the way a fire spreads etc it goes soooo much deeper than that, google ot and c 4 yourself!
