Hey guys, I'm doing a grade 12 science fair soon and I'm wondering if I can make a science fair out of coffee somehow?

Maybe espresso extraction or something like that. Any ideas?

I have about 2 weeks to present the idea, about a month to actually do it.

Any help or ideas would be great!

hmmm

I remeber in HS we did a burn test on various nuts to determine caloric content. Weight nuts, burn em and the re-weigh(cashews are highest btw) and you could do the same thing for coffee showing how length of roast lowers caffine content. Unfortunatly i have no idea how one goes about detemining caffine quantity in a seed pit. Somebody on this forum is sure to know.

You can make layered lattes to show thermal differences and how liquids of differing temp/densities mix.

Not sure how the parents feel but you can test memory/retention for caffinated v. non caffinated students by playng a game of concentration.

You could give varying amounts of espresso shots to fifth graders over a two hour period and see how it affects their behavior. Be sure to have lots of vanilla syrup (they won't drink it otherwise).

Good luck and be sure to post your results (video) on MySpace!
