|The Theme You Picked: Proving Science|
|Project14 | Proving Science: The Truth is Out There, Question Everything!|
The theme this month is Proving Science and it comes from a suggestion from neuromodulator . The idea is to build a science apparatus, a measuring device or a project that demonstrates a principle of science. Examples could be: an amplifier that can detect action potentials of neurons, a project that shows different properties of waves such as reflection, refraction or wave interference, or an instrument to measure different physical quantities such as mass, temperature, time, etc. In real life, science and engineering are not easily distinguished. Scientists wind up doing some engineering work while engineers apply processes that mirror a scientific framework. This project competition is a good opportunity to demonstrate solid engineering work through objective experimentation. You can focus on a scientific discipline such as electromagnetism, phonetics, acoustics, rf, renewable energy, and whatever interests you. Engineers are focused on products that solve a need, so this is also a good opportunity to build your own test instrumentation, and do so in the name of science.
Some of the most paradigm shifting scientific discoveries began with the invention of products made by engineers. The impressive list of famous scientists who were engineers include heroes such as James Clerk Maxwell, Leonardo Di Vinci, Charles Babbage, Hedy Lamar, Michael Faraday, and so many more. Your projects can involve either building a scientific apparatus or involve demonstrating a principle of science such as in an experiment of your choosing!

Your Project, Your Ideas!
Every month you'll have a new poll where you'll get to decide an upcoming project competition, based on your interests, that will take place a couple of months in advance. Themes are broad in scope so that everyone can participate regardless of skill set.

Step 2: Post in the comments section below to begin a discussion on your idea. Videos, pictures and text are all welcomed forms of submission.
Step 3: Submit a blog post of your progress on your project by the end of the month. You are free to submit as many blog entries as you like until the beginning of the next theme.
Be sure to include video proof of your project!
Visit: Proving Science or tag your project blog ProvingScienceCH
You have until September 14th End of Day to submit your completed project!
A jury consisting of your peers will judge project submissions!
