We've talked a lot about topics and research, but perhaps your Genius Hour project is going to be to create something to solve a problem or learn more about something. You may also like to teach yourself how to do something like learning an instrument, magic tricks, cooking, sports, or other skills. If that is the case,... 1. Watch the video linked showing the process one child went through to create something really cool. Hint: It wasn't easy.
