I've got my last science fair at my school coming up and I always scored kind of average. So this year I want to make a really good one for everyone to remember. I was thinking that I would use my instruments in this years project but I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me?

Why not explain the workings of the instrument and it's history, and perform a peice as a demonstration. You can also include pictures of famous performers.

Don't you play guitar, as well? If so, you could use the fretboard to explain nodes and harmonics. Modes and arabic-indian-asian scales and the math behind them are good examples of music and science connecting, as well...also percussion patterns in western and non western music and the use of syncopation.
I would Google for ""Gamalan Orcestra"" for this one, or ""Indonesian Music""
