Fire Ants: Height to Nutrition

Determine the maximum height at which fire ants would come to get food. Set out different types of food and then measured the height that the fire ants came to get that food.

Imported Fire Ant Control Using Household Products

You can use several types of household products to determine which ones controlled fire ants the best. You can use products such as Epsom salt, PeptoBismol®, and oranges. You need to make a transect to determine the initial numbers of fire ants in a mound, then present the household product to the mound. Finally, count the remaining fire ants after exposure to the household product.

Glass Harmonica by Ben Franklin

Science fair Projects
The science behind it has to do with frequency and vibrations. You could make your own glass harmonica of sorts by pouring water into a set of glasses. Align them to make a row. Fill each of them with different amounts of water (fill each with a little more water ). And then use a spoon and tap each of them in order. They should make a Do Rei Mi sound.

      I am about to start with my class of 9 and 10 year olds on their science fair projects. I'd like them to be able to chat/blog online with other students involved with sceince fair projects. Is anyone keen?
