Writing a Proposal if Designing Your Own Project

Please write up your ideas for your physics project into a proposal and turn it in to Mr. Falk.  It might be helpful to bounce ideas off your teachers, parents, others, or even do some research to help you come up with ideas for your project before turning in your proposal.  For this reason, you can turn these in during the first week of the project if necessary.  Perhaps we'll have to do some fine tuning before having everything set in stone.

There should be six parts to your proposal:

  1. What background physics are you going to learn and how?
  2. How are you going to report periodic progress?
  3. How are you going to include mathematical modeling in your project?
  4. How are you going to include people outside the school walls in your project?
  5. What new question, at least to you if not the world, are you going to try and answer with your final product?  (You can hold off a bit on this one if you're not sure at this point.)
  6. What is the budget or equipment requirements of your project?
