Simple science fair projects are great if you have a limited amount of time to complete them, or if you just want to do a quick project for fun. Science fair projects don't have to be long, involved and complex to be good. Simple science fair projects do great in science fairs as long as you can show that you learned something from the project, and are able to present it in an eye catching way and explain your project to the judges.
One example of simple science fair projects is to see what sort of effect music will have on the growth of plants. All you need for this project is three plants of the same variety, preferably as similar in shape and size as you can get, and 2 CD players, a rock and roll CD, and a classical CD. Place one plant in a room with the rock and roll music playing, another plant in a room with the classical music playing, and the third in a quiet room. Water them daily and record how each plant is doing after one and two weeks.
Another simple project to try might be to see if plants grow towards light. To do this, you need two plants and two boxes that the plants will fit in. Cut a hole in the top of one box and place the plant inside, and cut a hole in the side of the other box and place the second plant inside. Water them daily and check after a week or so to see if each of them is growing towards the hole in the box or not.
