Transformers are a toy, a cartoon series and now even a movie franchise. If you are fan of Transformers then you can have fun with this year’s science fair project by focusing on the science behind the Transformers. To help get you started there are two free sample Transformers themed science fair projects for you to work on.
Transformers Living Machines Science Fair Projects
This science fair project will examine the science behind the Transformers. It will take a look at the possibility of having a living machine. To complete this project you will need to research biomechanical technology. You will also need to interview experts in this field.
HYPOTHESIS: Organic materials can be used to create a computer chip.
EXPERIMENT: To complete this experiment you will need to first understand the components of a computer chip. Then you will need to find organic materials, on a cellular level, that can complete each task. You will be relying a lot on pre-existing research and data, but you can conduct your own research which tests the memory of various cells.
DATA: The data that you collect will be primarily from existing databases and research projects. However, you can also conduct your own research on cell memory. The analysis of your data will involve determining if organic cells can replicate the same functions as an electronic cell.
Transformers Computer Intelligence Science Fair Projects
This is another complex science fair project. It will be looking at the potential for computer intelligence. If you are a wiz on the computer then this is a good topic for you. The goal will be to see if computer intelligence can replicate human intelligence. For this project you will need computer components, programming skills and a lot of time.
HYPOTHESIS: Computer intelligence cannot replicate human intelligence.
EXPERIMENT: To test this hypothesis you will need to develop a computer program that improves computer intelligence. This will take computer programming skills and a lot of trial and error. A good place to start is to interview an expert in computer intelligence to see what has been developed so far and what limitations exist.
DATA: The data that you collect will related to the level of intelligence that you can program into a computer. For example, can a computer draw conclusions based on facts, can they infer, and can they reason. Your conclusions will be based on your findings and on the findings of other scientists.
