    Water Geology (Hydrogeology) Science Fair Projects & Experiments
    Elementary School - Grades 4-6
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Determine what types of sedimentary rock make the best storage rocks for petroleum oil. [E]
    Do North-Facing Beaches in Northern California Have Larger Sand Grains than South-Facing Beaches? [E]
    Test if the porosity of a rock matrix is affected by particle size. [E]

    Middle School - Grades 7-9
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Create a model of radioactive decay using dice and test its predictive power on dating the age of a hypothetical rock or artifact. [E]
    Stalactites and stalagmites: examine a variety of mineral solutions and see which would grow the longest, single formation. [E]
    Test different minerals to see where on the Mohs hardness scale they would fit. [P]
    Number of speleothems versus distance into a cave. [E]
    Perform a local calibration of lichen growth for lichenometry dating in your area and use this calibration to date a manmade or geological feature or disturbance in your area (for example, old stone walls, or a road cut, or a rock slide). [E]
    Investigate how layers of sand deform under lateral compression. [E]
    Find out if rocks are affected over time by varying levels of salinity as reflected in a freshwater environment. [E]
    Investigate what happens to the volume of wet sand under compression. [E]
    The Effect of Compression on Granular Media [E]
    Determine the profile of a desert wash from top to bottom - particle size and abundance. [E]
    Identify the texture, depth, color, structure, moisture, presence of rocks, roots and free carbonates in your neighborhood. [E]
