Fun Science Facts - Great Science Projects!
You may not believe it, but every one of these facts is true. With a little imagination, you should find some award winning science fair project ideas here.
If you are a little kid, do you know that you have 94 more bones in your body than your parents. Just go up to your mother or father and ask them, “What do I have 94 more of than you have?”You have 300 bones in your body. Your parents each have only 206 bones. As children grow older, some of their bones fuse together. How about this idea for a science fair project? How many bones do other animals have? Do young animals have more bones than adult animals of the same species?
You will never guess which animal is the most dangerous in the world. It's the common housefly. Because of their habit of dropping waste, they transmit more disease than any other animal. What other sources of disease transmission can you think of for a winning science fair project idea?
If you are a six foot adult and you could jump as high as a flea, you would jump over a 90 story building. Fleas can jump 130 times their own height. An adult with the same athletic prowess could jump 780 feet. You could do a science experiment about other bugs and animals and how high they can jump, and then submit it as your next science fair project.
What do you have in your body that measures 60,000 miles? The blood vessels in the average body measure about 60,000 miles. This could be a winning science fair project idea. Do some research and find out how many miles of blood vessels there are in several different animals.
My what big eyes you have. Do you know who or what has the biggest eyes on the planet? Finding out just who or what could make an exciting science fair project. It's the giant squid with eyes that measure 15 inches wide.
Just how far can the sound of an animal be heard. One hundred yards? One mile? How about 500 miles? That's how far the low frequency sound of a humpback whale can be heard. Find out how far other animal sounds can be heard and see if you can come up with an award winning science fair project.
Here are several other incredible science facts, any one of which would make a great project for your science class:
Wounds infested with maggots heal more quickly than other treatments.
The universe contains over 100 billion galaxies.
More germs are transferred shaking hands than kissing.
Giraffes never lie down.
