Looking for original kids science projects? Weather or meteorology ones? You wantto be specific when gathering information for either of these.
For one thing, try dictionaries and encyclopedias. Check out how others did it and maybe you'll find a better way.
If you're looking for science projects in weather, you'll find some useful and helpful resources.
The best way to approach an environmental science fair project is to start with a few questions and see what answers you get. See if you can find a way to prove your answers. Make something someone else can do later, hopefully with the same results.
Science rules, as Bill Nye would say. Looking for some fresh ideas for your science experiment? Looking for something new? Let's talk weather science: Here, I brainstormed a few ideas for you. Where you live, what affects the weather?
Live in a big city with few natural resources, or in an area surrounded by nature? How does air pressure affect your local weather? Does it change with the weather? Local weather conditions are influenced by air pressure. Stormy weather is associated with low air pressure, while sunny, clear weather is associated with high air pressure. With the passing of fronts, air pressure can rise and fall.
How do other factors alter the weather? What's the relationship between the weather and the climate in your region? Maybe you'll experiment with wind and clouds; if so, what creates and influences them? With your Science project, you can answer these questions.
Students in college and high school can do weather and meteorology science fair projects. Some of them can be adapted for middle and elementary school.
Determine what's appropriate based on the complexity of the project. Also, the student decides how serious the project should be.
Try a project designed for a slightly higher grade level or one requiring more research and strategic thinking if your kid loves weather.
Kids science projects should also take the teacher's recommendation into consideration, since schools have guidelines for effort levels. It'll help you and your student decide what to do.
for those in the earlier grades to try:
Students in middle schools can look at projects such as:
The more advanced students can look to projects such as:
These would make great articles: Meteorology and Science. Finding the right kids science projects for meteorology starts with asking the right questions. Find a new way to prove it and make it repeatable.
Got a great science project idea? Maybe you enjoyed one of these or found a successful one you enjoyed. Did it work? Was it something to do with weather?
Maybe you screwed it up like I did...and can laugh about it now. I'd like to help.
Was it fun? What grade were you (or your child) in? We'd all like to hear about it. That way you can re-live the memory.
