    I'm 16 years old and I really want to win my national science fair. I'm fascinated by all things space and I have been addicted to astrophysics ever since my Dad showed me a documentry on the discovery channel when i was ten. I was wondering if anyone could put me on the right path and give me suitable ideas that could be completed without needing an international space station. The competition is of a very high standard.
    I would be greatful for any input or ideas no matter how big or small.
    Thank you.

    I've judged quite a few local science fairs. Winning has as much to do with solid methods and clear presentation as it does scientific content.

    What's fields of science are you interested in? Most led themselves to development of hypothesis, testing and a conclusions that can be put together into a good presentation. Don't remember ever evaluating an astrophysics project before--perhaps looking at the early instruments and ideas from history might give you an idea.
