    have a look at some relevant newspapers and magazines, watch some of the talks here:
    http://www.ted.com/

    look at the science section of a newspaper:
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/science

    you'll almost definitely find something which really captures your interest.

    hope that helps

    Well, it'll have to be something you are very passionate about, that's one thing. I'm doing one on the sinking of the Titanic and have so far spent hours and hours reading documents about it, before feeling anywhere near ready for the essay. So take a while to make sure your topic is one you're certain of.

    Anyway, you could do something about the link between science and art; about what could be classed as beautiful or right (Dolly the Sheep etc, are they morally right?) I have no idea. Not areas I am very good at, but good luck with your project!

    I know a few people who are researching a scientific topic, and creating a piece of art inspired by it - e.g. one did a practical dying pigs eye retinas, and they have researched artists who create artwork linked to science, and they are creating a slightly abstract sculpture of the eye. Another is doing a similar thing but looking at mri scans.

    I'm doing an EPQ with the WJEC exam board. Because i would like to become an interior designer i'm doing it on interior designing. My main idea is to change the social area in my sixth form (as in add interior designs), however im not sure if i could actually do things like painting on the walls and rearranging the area. My teacher said i could take pics and edit them on Photoshop and like draw plans of what i would like it to look like. Anyone got any other ideas i could add to my project... it would be helpful

    I was wondering ( I'm in year eleven )

    Woukd these be good topics to.show that I'm not just science and Maths orientated..

    Are emotions socially constructed?

    Or

    What are dreams, subconscious predictions of the future?

    :reel:
    I like your second question, it could be an interesting topic to do but you would have to confirm what exactly you want it to be e.g a Design, Dissertation, Artifact e.t.c.

    Dreams sounds like a much more.interesting topic and more scientific.

    Whereas the emotions is more sociological, but also, someone I know wrote a degree essay on it and so I.could use their assistance.

    How about doing a questionnaire/ survey of the students opinions of your designs, or an essay-y bit about the advantages and disadvantages of your design, and compare it to the current layout. Perhaps you could persuade someone to let you move the furniture around and stick posters on the wall of what would be there - e.g. a window/ picture - this could help with the survey bit.

    Both of these points are wrong. Freud invented dream analysis therapy. Psycho-analysis is considered to be un-scientific, unlike some other areas of psychology. As for emotions being 'more emotional'...... someone doesn't know whatthey are talking about....
