Summary:SciJinks's Weather Science Fair web page offers middle level students project ideas in several categories; those that test a hypothesis (e.g., How does the temperature change during the day? One possible hypothesis: The temperature is lowest at midnight and highest at high noon.); those that review what we already know (e.g., How are tornadoes formed and what causes them?); those that find relationships in data (e.g., Is weather related to illnesses?); and those involving engineering design (e.g., Design, build, and test an automatic recording weather device). The page also includes steps for how to do a science fair project.
