If you got out of ideas for your next science project, don’t worry because we created a list of 10 easy biology science fair projects for high school students to help you.
There are several types of science projects you might think of doing. According to LiveScience, those are descriptive projects, collection projects, demonstration projects, engineering projects and experimentation projects. For our list of biology science fair projects, the experimental ones are predominant. Regarding experiments, if you are interested, you can also check what the 10 simple chemistry experiments with everyday materials.
While creating our list, we came across many interesting, easy biology fair projects for high school so, we will present some of them here. Our main resources were Education, All Science Fair Projects, and LiveScience, but we also used Julian’s Science Fair and Science Buddies for more ideas. Although some of them didn’t have a specified project difficulty, we have gone through many of them and picked the easy ones. Easy, meaning they involve a few people and short time, easily purchased items and materials, and just a few formulas and calculations in the project. Although botany experiments seemed to be the simplest regarding materials needed, we have also tried to cover as many biology fields as we could such as zoology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics. Also, the criteria regarding education level, high school, in this case, was also taken from these resources.
Here are also some tips how to formulate your project chapters. Write an introduction or proposal, where you will explain what you will be doing in your experiment. Then note what your goal with the experiment is, and why you picked this particular problem. After that, you should explain your hypothesis. The hypothesis, in this case, is your assumption on what you are expecting to get out of your experiment. Then you should make a list of materials you used in the experiment, and write exactly how and what you did in the experiment, making sort of instructions transparently so anyone can repeat your experiment. And in the end, you should write the results, and provide additional information on references.
Don’t forget that formulating research question is the foremost and very important part of your project. An interesting hypothesis makes the project more valuable, and also unique ideas and fairly done experiment can lead you to excellent marks and awards. All right then, let’s jump on our list to see what are the easy biology science fair projects for high school students.
