Science Fair Projects Gone Horribly Wrong

A common question posed on the Internet these days asks, “Has science gone too far?” A fair question, especially considering these funny science fair projects and memes that suggest, yes, it has. Though a child’s imagination and curiosity should always be encouraged and fostered, teachers also need to understand where to draw the line between useful and useless information.
The funny science fair pictures and bizarre science projects in this gallery will make you question everything you know about things you never really cared to know about in the first place. Clearly, many of these students decided to add some humor to their studies, and in doing so demonstrated how boredom can lead to brilliance. They say the beauty of science is that it does not claim to know the answers before it asks the questions, but these science fair fails propose questions with answers no one ever needed to know.
