  Maybe you have left it too late and now you need science Fair Projects you can do quickly. Well,
you're in luck, here is a fun and easy one you can do in less than 24 hours! This is one of our many
easy science fair projects to do on short notice

 This experiment is about heat absorption. You are going to try and find out which colors absorb more
heat than other.

 Here are the questions you should be able to answer after you have completed this science fair

1. Which ice cube melted the most?
2. How did the colors effect the melting of the ice cubes?
3. What does this fact tell you about the heat absorption of colors?
4. Do dark colors absorb more heat than light colors?

Now we have to start our experiment:

 Do you know what the first thing is you need to do? Yes, you have to formulate your hypothesis! In
doing this experiment to see which ice cube, covered in different colors, melts the most, what do you
think your hypothesis should be? Okay it is: Do dark colors absorb more heat than light colors.

What you need for this easy science fair project (it is called the materials):

 * Several different colors of fabric about 6 or 7 inches square, as many as you can but at least 5
different colors
 * A pair of scissors
 * An ice cube for each color of fabric, the ice cubes must be more or less the same size
 * A good food scale that can weigh very small differences
 * A large cookie sheet or a tray
 * A pen
 * A note book
 * A camera

                                                 Presented by Daniel Toriola

How you have to do this experiment (it is called the procedure):

 1. Cut the pieces of fabric to a size a little larger than the tops of the ice cubes
 2. Now you have to weigh each ice cube and make a note of the weight
 3. Place the ice cubes on the cookie tray
 4. Take a photo for your display
 5. Cover each ice cube with a piece of fabric
 6. Make sure you write down which color you placed over which ice cube as you have to work out the
percentage of weight each cube lost late on.
 7. Once again take a photo for your display
 8. Place the cookie tray in direct sunlight
 9. Leave it for 15 minutes, if it is not too hot. If it is very hot and the cubes are going to melt very fast
you have to check on them sooner. This you will have to work out for yourself
 10. Take a photo for your display
 11. Bring the ice cubes back in and take a photo for your display
 12. Weigh each ice cube as fast as possible to prevent further melting
 13. Write down each one's weight
 14. Now you have to determine the percentage of weight each cube has lost. This is how you do it:
you take the beginning weight of the ice cube and you subtract the end weigh of the ice cube from it.
This amount you divide by the beginning weight multiplied by a hundred to get the percentage. A
formula to show you this will be easier:

(Beginning weight) - (final weight)/ Beginning weight X 100 = percentage melted

 Can you think of what else you can do for your display now? Yes, you have to make a graph to show
the differences in percentage each ice cube melted.

Now you can come to your conclusion about the difference in heat different colors absorbs.

 If you have more time for science fair projects to do, you can take this experiment further by doing the
same, but placing the tray in the fridge or by covering it with a cardboard box to see if it makes any
difference to the results and to formulate why you think it makes a difference. For instance, does the
heat absorption of the cardboard box play any role in it?

                                     The Benefits Of Unique Science Fair Projects
                                                         By Robert Watson

 Everyone has seen the tired old science fair project, such as the volcano or the styrofoam solar
system, which have been favorites of many parents for what feels like generations. These projects are
relatively simple and easy from the parent's point of view, but they are incredibly bad choices for the
children involved. Why?

These are the kind of projects that are so well-known that even the students know what is going to
happen. And when that happens, the students are not learning anything, and their performance suffers
during the presentation portion of science fairs because of it. Science fair judges have gotten bored
with these types of projects, and that's a big problem for students who endeavor to win prizes in their
science fair. In the end, this kind of project is only really good for the parents, and surprisingly, these
kinds of projects are not even particularly cheap!

What you need to find is a unique science fair project, or at least something that beats those tired old
projects. Not only will this help your child learn more, it can give them a much better chance of winning
the science fair. Often, these competitions can include a scholarship or a nice cash prize, and even
those that do not can often lead to a science scholarship later on down the line. That's a nice benefit,
and aside from the grades, the knowledge, and the experience your child is getting with their
participation, it gives you a great reason to try and do something unique.

So what kind of unique science fair projects are there? The internet seems like a decent first option,
but given the prevalence of use, you can guarantee that large science fairs include a duplicate project,
especially if you took your idea from a popular science fair blog or website. Even in a small science
fair, or an in-class science fair, you have to guess that there are more than a few people who are
visiting the same websites that you are, including the judges and the teachers who are grading your
students. Duplicate projects mean trouble for the judges and the teachers, as it negates the true
benefit of science fairs: having an exploratory experience. They want you to come up with something
unique, on your own. In addition, you have to think about what kind of experience your child is having.
A science fair is a chance for them to express their own creativity and interests, and plucking an easy
or cheap project off of a website isn't helping them out any.

You can try visiting the library for books, or looking at news sites as well, but these sources often
provide out-of-date, boring, or incredibly difficult projects.

Have the child come up with something of their own, or if that doesn't work, then have them add their
own input into some aspect of an interesting and more unique science fair project. You can take some
help from the internet, especially from the "members only" sites on the internet that have really solid
projects, and books or suggestions with more unique ideas, but make sure to add something to them!

If your child needs help with their science fair project and you lack computer skills or scientific
knowledge, don't be afraid to look for help. Many of those members only sites will offer helpful
downloads like ready-made charts and spreadsheets for your child's use. You can also get help from
online tutors, who are usually science majors in college who can help you out with some simple advice.
