    Hi Selena. For a science journal, you need to record the date, the information you get from a source and the bibliographical information. Generally, I suggest that students write a short summary of the information they get from a source and then their response to that information, which can include what they learned, what questions the information made you think about, and what you thought was useful or important.

    This real helped me I was looking for topics for my research paper for days. Great thanks alot.

    Any advice on how to write a science journal ?

  • Virginia Kearney 2 weeks agofrom United States

    Hi Gloria, there are some life science samples in the topics above. Here are a couple more:

    How is DNA analysis of ancient bones changing our concept of the evolutionary tree?

    How is Biopharma changing healthcare?

    Hi Bella--You need to look at my science fair article about growing flowers.

  • bella 2 months ago

    hi love the articles but Im doing a lab that the title is: will a flower grow faster and more efficiently in cold or hot water but I don't know that purpose is? or the hypothesis.

  • katie eldeen 2 months ago

    ok thankyou so much you have been very helpful I think I have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do

  • Virginia Kearney 3 months agofrom United States

    Hi Katie--I'd start with an example of when the physics of motion is helpful, or used, or happens in daily life. To decide which sort of motion to research, I'd go to some physics websites (or even Wikipedia) and look up the different kinds and see which one you find most interesting, or which one you think you could find the most information about. Sometimes, I suggest that before choosing a topic that students do some preliminary research, looking for information. If you can't find anything useful in 30 minutes or so, you should probably choose another topic.

  • katie eldeen 3 months ago

    hi Virginia, I love your articles. I'm doing a 10-15 page research paper on physics of motion. this is a huge topic and I really need a good attention grabber. I have no idea what section of motion I'm going to be discussing, I also need some advice there. if you could help I would really appreciate it

  • lilibethlopez0123@gmail.com 3 months ago

  • Virginia Kearney 3 months agofrom United States

    Hi Katie--You might want to look at my article on Technology topics because that has information about physical science topics. If you are working on Creationism, you might want to see my article about "Can Christians believe in Evolution?

  • katie eldeen 3 months ago

    Marley, you have a good idea about endangered animals. Here are some samples: How do we best save endangered animals? Or you can pick a specific one to talk about. How do we balance the interests of people and animals on our planet? Does buying up land and setting it aside as a nature refuge work to save endangered animals? Does Ecotourism help save endangered animals?

  • Marley 5 months ago

    Maybe topics about endangered animals? Those are very interesting to me and other people.

  • Dameon 5 months ago

    infectious diseases like the flesh eating disease is interesting to read about.

    Sure Samantha, although I don't know what information is available on that topic. You can search for "dog communication" in Google Scholar to get some idea of any studies that have already been done.

  • Samantha 5 months ago

    we are doing a project for science and i want to do a project on how dogs communicate, would that be related to science?

  • Riley Bozarth 6 months ago

    Plenty of cool topics in the Astronomy and Physics category

  • Celeste 6 months ago

    I am at school and I wanna ask. What would be a good project for science research class? Were having difficulty picking a project for our 'science fair'. It isn't really a science fair though more like a presentation. What good ideas can I use with like space stuff?

  • Virginia Kearney 6 months agofrom United States

    EunJae, you might want to look at my science experiment about the salinity of water in agriculture.

  • EunJae 6 months ago

    How about in agricultural aspects? Are there any common problems that arising nowadays? I really need help. Thank you.

  • Virginia Kearney 7 months agofrom United States

    Hi Lily, I have a lot of different science fair projects I have designed. The one that seems to suit your idea best is "How does salt water affect seed germination." It is on owlcation, and you can find it by searching my profile page or googling it, or this link: https://owlcation.com/stem/Science-Project-How-Doe...

  • Lily 7 months ago

    Hi Virginia. I have a science fair coming up and I need help for a topic. So I've already put down environmental management as my topic and "destruction" as my heading because I was going to conduct an experiment on something else. But now that won't work and I'm planning on doing a research project. So do you have any ideas of what I could say that has anything to do with the destruction of the earth? It would help if you would reply ASAP. Thanks xxx

    hi! ..I would like to have a research on teaching science through multimedia,, any suggestions what would be a good topic? Thank you..

  • Virginia Kearney 8 months agofrom United States

    Jessica--Good topic idea! Something like: What is the value of space exploration of other planets for humans?

  • Jessica Jones 8 months ago

    I think something on how looking at other planets in the universe helps us learn more about our own would be a good topic

  • Virginia Kearney 8 months agofrom United States

    Hi Suzie! You've come to the right place. I have over 100 articles on writing and other articles on doing science projects. You can see my articles under my profile or just search for a topic. You can also see other articles written by me linked on the side.

  • Suzie Sheep 8 months ago

    Hello Mrs. I would like some more tips for my students in my class. They all need a project on something. Cheers.

  • Mini 8 months ago

    Thank you so much ma'am

  • Virginia Kearney 8 months agofrom United States

    Hi Mini--I will add some microbiology topics. Thanks for the suggestion. Here are a couple of ideas taken from currently important research: What is the recent update on the Corynebacterium species and their clinical significance? What are the best ways for medical personnel to handle the growing problem of antibacterial resistance? Can older techniques like anti-microbial peptides be used effectively to treat bacteria?
