I noticed (it's hard not to!) that your profile picture seems to indicate an interest in (and perhaps some knowledge about) volleyball.  You might want to adapt the earlier suggestion about baseball and produce a paper about the physics of volleyball.  To my great surprise, much already seems to have been written on this topic, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding sources:

If by Physical Science you are referring to the physical things of our world, it might be interesting to research as aspect of global warming, pollution control, animals who are near extinction and why, modern commercial farming techniques, or some other topic that you see could have a direct relationship to your life now or in the future. Certainly if you are interested in the topic or find it to be personally relevant, it will be easier to write such a long report.

How about the physics of baseball?  How much theoretic physics should a baseball player have to know? What physical choices does a batter have to make?  Bat weight? Stance? The force behind hitting a low pitch vs. a high pitch? etc. etc.  You could expand to the pitcher's physics -- the curve, the slider, etc.  And finally you could discuss the ground ball bounce.  The physical sciences deal with the laws of physics on the kinetic level, rather than the molecular or astronomical level.  If time and space permit, you could deal with the air temperature at game time, or Summer game conditions vs. chilly October days.
