Project Ideas by Topic


Finding the Science in Everyday Life
Doing a science fair project does not have to be a drag. Instead of searching the internet for someone else’s idea, try finding the science in something you are interested in.

Projects That Should Be Pre-approved


The following link is a direct connection to the YSC information on project approval:

http://ysf.ca/Members/pdirectory4.aspx

It includes rules and necessary forms for experiments with humans, other animals, explosives and firearms, and recombinant DNA.


Experiments with living things or dangerous equipment and materials are closely monitored. Ethics and safety are major concerns with all experimentation. Feeding caffeine to small vertebrates would be considered an unusual stress on the animal, and would not be approved.

Homemade explosive devices would be questioned. Some projects can proceed under supervision if pre-approved. Every Year there are project that arrive at the Canada-Wide Science Fair that have not met the conditions outlined in the rules. They are disqualified and the students are sent home.

If there is any doubt that the project you are considering might be rejected, protect yourself by checking the rules at the link above and complete any necessary forms before you have done a lot of work.
