Science Projects by Subject Area

Subject Area Grade Project Name Summary
Earth Science 3 Make A Volcano How to make a volcano out of paper-mache, an old box and a throw-away plastic bottle.
Earth Science 3 Erupting Volcano We take the paper-mache model and make it erupt with Baking Soda & Vinegar, Diet Coke & Mentos and Salt & Diet Soda. Great Fun!
Electricity 5 Apple Battery Make a battery out of an apple, a couple nails and a piece of wire
Electricity 1
*Note
Battery Light Using a flashlight we all take for granted, this project helps young students start asking how common things around them work.

*Note – In the Texas C-SCOPE student expectations guidelines, this could also be used to satisfy TEA 4.5A for grade 4.

Electricity 5 Coin Battery Make a battery out of pocket change!
Electricity 5 Lemon Battery Make a battery out of a lemon, a couple nails and a piece of wire.
Electricity 5 Potato Battery Make a battery out of a potato, a couple nails and a piece of wire.
Magnetism K Compass Needle Deflection Part of the “What a Compass Does” project below.
Magnetism K What a Compass Does Teaches young children where North is and shows what a compass does in a fun classroom event.
Magnetism K What a Magnet Attracts This project gives young students some “hands on” time, and shows we may be suprised to see what a magnet will really pick up.
Magnetism 2 How to Make a Compass How to make a compass from materials you have around the house.
Magnetism 2 How to Make a Magnet Can we make a magnet from things we might find in a desk drawer? This project helps young students understand magnetism by working with it
Magnetism 4 Compass Needle Deflection Part of the “How to Make an Electromagnet” project below.
Magnetism 4 How to Make an Electromagnet Starts connecting electricity and magnetism by using one to create the other.
Electricity & Magnetism 4 DIY Electric Train Combines electricity and magnetism to make an object move (homo-polar motor variation).
Wind Power Project 5 Wind Power Project Harness the power of the wind using PVC pipe and popsicle sticks!
