The Discovery Center at Water’s Edge, a forthcoming interactive world-class science center where visitors of all ages can experience hands-on science and technology, see tomorrow’s technology today, and learn the history of scientific discovery in our area, welcomed over 2,000 attendees at its first annual Magic of Science Fair and Family Festival on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at the TUNE Building at Harford Community College.
An assignment in eighth grade to create a science fair project inspired Ethan Manuell to conduct experiments with hearing aid batteries to see how to make them last longer. He has worn hearing aids since he was four, so he knew how much getting more life out of a battery improves the lives of hearing aid users. Now he’s a junior at the University of Iowa pursuing a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering.
This illustrates that a good way to come up with your own science fair project is to write down questions from your own life that have a single variable you can measure to see how different tests change it. If you don’t know how to do the measurement, talk to your advisor.
