Science Fair Projects for Kids always start with a question. A question about something they are wondering, want to figure out, or prove. It is important for your child’s Science fair project to be something they are curious about and although it is tempting as a parent to lead the way, let your child navigate the investigation and presentation. That being said, if you need some inspiration, check out these Science Fair Projects for Kids.
Can you walk on eggs without cracking them?

I like this board from Biology at Shaw High School simple to organize and easy to read, but anything that makes sense to your child will also work.
