When you think about it, many of the educational hobbies out there involve science, math, and reading. It’s a natural progression that your science fair projects could be in the realm of something you already enjoy, something you’ve taken for granted as “just a hobby.” Not to minimize hobbies, just the opposite. I think they should be second nature for the whole family! But when they are, we may not think about the science fair opportunities that may be just under the surface.
What Science Fair Projects Involve Educational Hobbies?
Here’s a handful to get you thinking:
Remote Control Helicopters: How much weight can they carry and how far? What batteries power up longer? What makes one helicopter faster than another?
Philately: What is the best method for removing a stamp? How do you remove the paper from the back, and what do you need to know to preserve them properly?
Robotic Boats: What does the length of the boat have to do with its ability to navigate a circumference accurately? Does the weight have anything to do with it? What engine goes faster, gas or electric?
Modeling Clay: How long does it take polymer clay to dry as opposed to modeling clay? Which colors take better? Can one do more than the other?
Cooking: What happens when you mix baking soda with vinegar? Why? Why does chocolate pudding get thick when you cook it?
Pinewood Derby: C’mon, the whole thing is science! How far can you make it go? What contributed to the speed? What are the differences between two competing cars?
So get your hypothesis ready, ask a question that you may already know something about, but may not have thought about why you’re getting the results you’re getting. Maybe one of these hobbies already interested you, but you’ve never pursued it. A science fair project is a good reason to get started! What hobbies have you used as a basis for a science fair project?
