**Project ideas with an animated bullet in front of them have extra
information.
Just click the bullet to access the additional suggestions for that project
idea.

**Caution!!!**

**Remember that these project ideas and outlines are meant to help
you complete your own science fair project. But it is DISHONEST and UNETHICAL
to copy someone else's project work samples and submit them as if they were
your own. That's called plagiarism and it's a fast way to get a failing
grade. It's okay to do the same project as someone else, or review what
others have done so you can make your project better, but DO NOT COPY and
pretend it's your project. Someone is sure to spot the plagiarism!!
