Question: quick science question for a simple science experiment!?
For science class, i have to perform my own experiment (it has to be simple though) so i chose which melts faster–Chocolate, ice, or butter.
If i were to go about doing this, would i leave the chocolate, ice, and butter out in the sun and just time how long it takes to melt or should i try microwaving each one individually?
Answer: No! leave the chocolate, ice, butter out in the sun and record in ur lab notebook or whatever u will use to write down the data how long it had taken each of the substances to melt. Your teacher would probably prefer it more that microwaving each one individually.

Question: I need a website with science fair samples?
Can someone give me a website with science fair project samples? Like the entire project from beginning to finish.
I am not looking to plagiarize, I know that the teacher will easily find out if I did. I already did my own experiment, I just want to look at some lab report formats and board layouts.

Question: Beautiful universe we have…?
I’ve always been interested in science. I’m fairly confident with my math/science skills and wish everyone else was as interested as I am (people who live in my area). I recently realized that the thin long cloud I see every night after coming home from work is actually the Milky Way, and found some amazing videos that people posted of it from their house with high light sensitivity. Amazing.
Everything just seems to makes sense and really makes you think about everything. Do you think that if schools had taken students outside, do fun experiments that actually SHOW how people discovered these things, we might have more people understand how the world works?
I couldn’t believe that I was so interested in things that you ‘learn’ in school until I actually figured out how it worked through experiment, instead of a book telling me.
What do you guys think? Have a similar experience?
Answer: Theory improves knowledge.
Practice makes one perfect.
Experiments help put theory into practice.
I learnt theory of engineering in the college.
I learnt how steam jet vacuum systems work while working in the factory. Theory helped me to grasp it better and I became an authority in the application of steam jet vacuum systems in the company I was working.
