How to Pick a Science/Engineering Project Topic

In preparations for the 68th Orange County Science and Engineering Fair in March 2023, our team has created a Powerpoint presentation designed to help you how to pick the topic for your next project.

The presentation, based on our preparation workshop, will walk you through from starting the process, personalizing your project, brainstorming, bouncing off ideas with friends and other methods. You’ll see examples from previous years and a rich list of sources that you can look at.

Whether you are drawn to working with plants, researching animals, building something, improving on a design or solving an existing problem – you’ll learn through this presentation what makes a good project topic question.
