Science Fair Projects: Flight, Space & Astronomy
Sterling Publishers Pvt. Limited, Mar 1, 1998 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 96 pages
Want to win that next science fair? Then get started! These 53 science projects for elementary school kids use only inexpensive and easily available materials, yet they teach and exhibit exciting scientific principles that combine math, physics, aerodynamics, optics, and astronomy. The experiments explore gravity, the different rotational spins of the planets, the nature of comets, the effects of sunlight, and star patterns. Exhibit and explain gravity's effect on light, light pollution, the effect of sunlight on color, and the practical benefits of space research. Do a "moon watch", to discover its motions and chart its phases. Get a "super-size surprise" when you measure the sun's diameter with just a pencil, typing paper, book, rules, clothespin, and two flashlights. Demonstrate the effects of lift, pressure, and drag. Test out the principles of "action and reaction" -- Newton's first law of physics -- to demonstrate force. Build a telescope and a sundial. Work With kites, parachutes, balloons, bubbles, compasses, binoculars, telescopes -- all of them basic and ordinary things, all of them sure to inspire you to get involved in the excitement and fun of science -- and win that blue ribbon!
