Physics
P=Project   E=Experiment
Find out if the diameter of a PVC pipe would affect the speed of a small metal ball travelling inside the pipe - explore the relationship of friction and gravity inside the pipe. [E]
Bending space-time, matter and gravity [E]
Build an accelerometer and use it to measure acceleration and gravity-induced reaction forces on a roller-coaster ride. [E]
Prove Isaac Newton's laws of gravity and Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. [E]
Proving Isaac Newton's Universal Gravitation by Warping Space-Time [E]
Repeat Eötvös experiment (the correlation between inertial mass and gravitational mass, demonstrating that the two were one and the same) [E] [E]
Relativity and Black Holes
Engineering
Determine the effects of aft weight and nose weight (center of gravity) on paper airplanes. [E]
Using Simple Models to Predict the Effects of Gravity on Projectiles [E]
How Does Center of Gravity Affect a Crane Design? [E]
Will the increasing of the distance between the center of gravity (CG) and the center of wind pressure (CP) increase the rocket's stability and performance of flight [E]
Astronomy
Using Magnetic Levitation to determine whether it is possible to measure Gravity using the moon's gravitational pull. [P]
Measuring the Speed of Gravity using Ocean Tide Models in Conjunction with Solar and Lunar Position Tracks [E]
Botany
Tropism
Earth Sciences
Finding Your Location Using Gravity, the Earth's Magnetic Field, and a Sundial [E]
Medicine and Human Anatomy
Explore how changing your center of gravity affects how well you can balance. [E]
Solar & Renewable Energy
Determine whether it is possible to harness wasted gravitational potential energy and convert it into easily accessed kinetic energy. Application of this principle is a garbage can that can bring itself out to the curb when full and back to the house when empty. [E]
