Angry science fair help...............?!

i'm wanting to do a science fair based on this:
http://travel.howstuffworks.com/turbine.htm/printable
i have no idea what to do though! i have to have a purpose, hypothesis, materials list, procedure, data, stuff like that, but i have no idea how i would get that.

what exactly are you planning to do? Build a scale model of a gas turbine? That seems rather hard, IMO. Especially when you throw in all that fine print there. Ever try a volcano?

But really, sems like there's a lot of technical stuff involved. That would be a challenge for me to come up with all that stuff, and I've had a little over a year in physics. I KNOW I'm incapable of building something like that over a small time frame, but if you think you can do it, go for it. It would be awesome.

Yeah, that sounds like a weird assignment. I probably couldn't help you more unless I know EXACTLY what's going on. Sorry.

There was a history channel show on turbine engines (yeah, I watched it). ^.^

Seriously, if you can dig that up, it might help.

what i would do to show how they work is build only half of a scale model and get very detailed inside. show where everything thing is and next to that show how a prop engine works.

from there you can show how jet turbines are faster for they focus the moving air and use fuel to egnite the air/fuel mixture to produce a massive force that pushes the plane.
