She wants me to come up with something unique with first place in mind. I was thinking of pushing renewable energy or magnetic propulsion...something along those lines which can really make an impact in today's world. She is in 4th grade but thinks like a 9th grader for her project. Any help is greatly appreciated.

An anti-gravity system would be good. Or some kind of viewer that allows you to look into other dimensions.

Teleporting machine would be good.

Or maybe a practical Cold Fusion reactor?

You can get the Other Dimension Viewer free with one of those Ronco fishing rods. It's a $20 value.

crazy idea here...

but maybe you should have her pose a question that can be solved by measured experiments, perform the experiments, record her data, analyze it, and then produce a display to inform others of her results.

:shrug:Nah, that method is too tried and true. And boring.

You need a experiment with pizazz for that 1st place ribbon.

Have her create a "fact" and e-mail it to everyone she knows, and then see how long it takes to become accepted knowledge on the Internet. As an initial suggestion, perhaps she can create a warning e-mail about tattoos catching on fire when exposed to microwaves. Or maybe she can create a new word.

Maybe you could make some sort of small-scale algae energy machine. They have been tried in some deserts on a large scale operation. No idea how they work or how they produce energy. No idea if it's even possible for a school project. Just throwing something out there.

She obviously thinks you are an idiot if she thinks you can only pull a 9th grade project out of your ass.

If she is so smart, why not have her do the project?

at that age, most everyone's dads do their science projects.

Easy. The first one would be Lindsay Lohans underwear. The second Susan Sarandons.

I think that's been done (see 'Global Warming').

I've always wondered when emptying a gallon jug, does it empty faster completely upside down or with a little tilt? There's a lot pouring out upside down, but those glugs really slow things up. Get back to me.

My daughter and I built a tornado chamber. She was interested in tornadoes. It was neat, but it was hard to come up with some testable idea based on the apparatus.

It looked kind of like this, except the outside was white:

My son did a science project in 5th grade. His project was to find out which type of material can hold the heat longest: glass, paper, plastic, and foam, or in football sense, which type of container could hold the cold beer cold for the longest time.

The finding is that the plastic cup is the worst. The foam and paper cups are the very close at the top. We didn't try beer can though.

We didn't try beer can though.A similar project is to take equal masses of aluminum and lead, heat them to the same temperature, then set them on blocks of bees wax. The Aluminum will melt a lot further through the bees wax than the lead, because it holds heat a lot better. Something to do with the number of atoms in Aluminum vs. Lead... I don't know, I got a C in physics.
