When you’re brainstorming ideas for a science project – think LEGO®! Incorporating LEGO® Bricks into your experiment will make it more colorful and certainly more fun! They can play a small role or be prominently featured, but either way they’ll be easily recognizable and make the project interesting – for you and for the audience.
When coming up with a science project idea, review the requirements first. Some science fairs allow models, but many require your project to feature a true experiment. A model displays a scientific item or principle, while an experiment is the test of a scientific question. It includes an independent variable that you are changing in order to test your question. Talk with your teacher or science fair coordinator if you need more information about the distinction.
LEGO® Bricks can be used in models or experiments. Here are just a few ideas. Take a look and then see if you can come up with some of your own!
Your science project can be credible and scientifically valid if you take the time to create a well-designed test and perform a controlled experiment. It can be engaging and bright if you use some LEGO® Bricks! We suggest you do both!
