For a science project you could talk about the different types of jet engines. For example you could talk about how commercial jetliners started with the turbo-jets, then they went on to turbo-fans. Then you could build onto the turbo-fan and explain how the high bypass ratio turbo-fan works. I won't get too technical here, just a rough idea. Good luck, hope this helps!  Big thumbs up

Or how about a project centered around the future of commercial aviation powerplants....the ramjet engine? Should make an interesting project and there are tons of sources freely available...from the JPL to NASA!

The Mile High Club etc,
the thing about pilots in their uniforms and the stigma associated with flight attendants.

just an idea.
