    For something different I would suggest "The role of computational fluid dynamics in the modern world".

    I say this because it's a subject I'm increasingly discovering for myself, and it's set to grow quite hugely as time goes on.

    It's basically all this kind of stuff: - https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=CF...MHCw8Q_AUICSgC

    Fluid dynamics is everywhere in society. It's something you don't cover at high school or college level but, given that your thoughts so far are about special relativity and the likes, I take it you want to do something a bit more advanced.

    If I were you I'd go for something with experimental evidence that hasn't been entirely proven or with a topic up to debate, i.e. Dark Energy or something with plenty of data you can analyse and shove in to your EPQ.

    If you went for the LHC, you'd certainly have loads of data to analyse. You could discuss techniques in how they found the Higgs Boson, and what it implies for the Higgs Field Theory/etc, and even go in to the specifics on it and state how these techniques are transferable to discovering other particles, and all that sweet stuff, and it seems to be the finest of your suggestions, at least to me :P

    Either ways, for a good Physics EPQ I'd say that something with plenty of data, plenty of uncertainty and debate/controversy, and above all plenty of material, that's the sort of thing that you should look for!

    Feel free to message me if you ever need insight or anything, and I'd love it if you were to send me a copy (if you could) when you finish it or while you're doing it! I'd love to know what it's like to do an EPQ (I never had the chance xD)
