A great way to make science fun and interesting is to experiment and do projects on an informal basis. You don't need to have a science fair looming on the horizon in order to work through a science project.
The next time you and a friend are sitting around trying to think of something to do, suggest that you try one of the projects outlined in this section. You'll have a good time, and, who knows, you might even end up looking at the world a little differently.
