Love is more than just a feeling. It is actually a biochemical response. If you have to complete a science fair projects this year then develop one around love. To give you an idea about how love can be turned into a science fair project, below you will find two free sample love science fair projects.
Love and Blood Pressure – Up or Down?
In this love science fair project your goal will be to determine if being in love raises or lowers your blood pressure. While love can raise your heart rate, could it possibly help to improve your blood pressure? This is what you need to find out.
HYPOTHESIS: Being in love lowers your blood pressure.
EXPERIMENT: To test this hypothesis you will need to find ten volunteers who are in love and ten volunteers who are not in love. Their ages, weight to height ratios and general health should all be equivalent to one another. You will take each test subject’s blood pressure.
DATA: The data that you collect will be blood pressure measurements from each test subject. You may want to take their blood pressure once a day, at the same time of day for one week and create their average blood pressure. You will then interview each test subject to determine if they are in love or not in love. The analysis portion of your project will involve comparing the blood pressures to see if people in love have healthier blood pressures then people who are not in love.
Love and Sleep
In this love experiment you will be determining if love impacts sleep patterns. For this experiment you will need ten volunteers who are in love. They will be reporting to you about their sleep patterns over the duration of two weeks.
HYPOTHESIS: Love reduces the amount of sleep that you get.
EXPERIMENT: To start with you will interview each test subject to determine what their normal sleep pattern is, or what it was before they met the person that they are in love with now. Next you will have each test subject keep a sleep journal. This journal will include when they go to bed, when they wake up and how many times they wake up in the night. You may also want to have them record how rested they feel each morning when they wake up.
DATA: The data that you collect will be from interviews and the sleep journals. The analysis portion of this experiment will include comparing sleep patterns prior to their current relationship and sleep patterns during their love relationship. Be careful not to contaminate your results with other possible causes of changes in sleep patterns. If a change in the sleep pattern is observed you may need to re-interview the test subject to see if anything else has changed in their life such as added stress at home, illness or changes in responsibilities.
