A science-fair invention is different from a normal science-fair project. With an invention, the student must develop a solution to a problem. To begin the project, think of a problem that needs to be solved and develop a solution that could solve the problem. The best science-fair invention would address a problem faced by many students at the school.

Quiet Down

Think of how loud it gets in the cafeteria when all students are talking. This is a problem that can be solved with a new invention. Look in the cafeteria to determine the cause of the problem. For example, student voices may echo off the walls or students may have to talk loudly because they sit far apart. To help with this problem, you can develop an invention that would stop the sound from echoing and allow students to talk quieter in the cafeteria. By covering the walls with something soft, the sound in the cafeteria won't echo.

Heavy Lifting

If you lift up a student's backpack, you would notice how heavy it is from the books and materials he or she must carry. It is difficult for young students to carry around these heavy backpacks. To solve this problem, look at many different students' backpacks and see how you can develop a solution. Your solution may be a way to transport the backpack without carrying all the weight or to make the backpack lighter.

A Friendly Reminder

Chores are a hard thing for children to remember. It's especially important for children to remember to feed their dog. You may want to develop a project to help chores be remembered. To investigate the problem, think about how you can solve the problem without hurting the dog. You may want to develop a system that would create a reminder for the chore or you may invent a way to feed the dog without anyone being there. You may be able to create a system that would dispense dog food when the bowl is running low.
