Every Science Fair project starts with an idea! Here are some tips for finding an idea that will make you want to push yourself to the limit:
You can also consult the document Trouver une idée pour un projet en expérimentation (in French), which provides a few exercises you can do individually or in class to help with the search for your idea. The method also works for Design or Study projects.
You can also consult our ideas bank, based on the document 1001 ideas, thousands of projects, developed by the CDLS with support from Merck, Esso, and the Québec Ministry of Economic Development, Innovation and Export Trade. The documents refer to older Science Fair categories, but the ideas are still current. New versions of these documents will be made available soon.
