You'll also find dozens of suggestions for developing your own science fair projects.

Make an insect model out of clay, paper, and toothpicks. Discover what straws can tell you about a grasshopper's eyes. Use a jar of baby food to learn how flies eat. All these experiments use inexpensive household materials and involve a minimum of preparation and cleanup.
