select them. This normally takes 3 to 4 weeks. If you
are selecting a project that is not in bold font, make
sure you have enough time to wait for project guide and
also complete your project.

If you have a new
project that is not listed here, we can assign you a
dedicated project advisor to help you on gathering
information and designing experiments.
To use this service
you need to upgrade your membership to active membership
level. There is a $150 fee for each year that you
request such upgrade. (Limited to
one project per active member). You need to have
at least 3 weeks time for your project advisor to gather
information and design experiments.

Egg Floatation Project
Included are sample
topics for making models or conducting demonstrations.
These should be level 3 projects. Some personal input is
needed to avoid just a display project. 11.

Length - Why the day length changes in different days of
the year? Calculate or record length of days and nights over a
period of time; what effects do the changes have on things like
household plants, pets, etc.
Movement - Is air in your house the same temperature at
floor level and near the ceiling? How could you spread heat more
evenly through the house?
- Does it form on clear or cloudy nights? What other frost
factors increase the amount of dew? Can you measure how much dew
is formed in a square meter.
- How does the temperature change during the day? What time is
usually the warmest? Can you construct your own thermometer to
keep your own records.
- How does a rain gauge work? Measure the rainfall over a period
of time and compare it with the daily weather reports. -
