Brain-Machine Interfaces and You!
I would help the student identify a simple but extremely effective application for a brain-machine interface, and we would work through the steps that would go into designing it. This could be for humans for even as creative as a song prosthesis for a bird. This could possibly result in a science fair project.
What shapes how animals make decisions as adults? Watching naturalistic animal behavior, we can observe how young animals behave shapes the roles they have later in life. This could be done through watching animals in your life or through zoo cams. This could result in a picture book, podcast, article, or report.
