Effectiveness of ginger against motion sicknessFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that eating  ginger candy  helps to reduce the effect of motion sickness   is proven to be true.

Ginger has a very sweet aroma but a strong taste. Although ginger has traditionally been a popular seasoning used in Asian cooking, it  has also found its place in western dishes like bread, pudding and pies. Ginger is also used in traditional alternative medicine to cure colds, coughs and stomach ailments.

Also consider

This science project can also be repeated using ginger beer, ginger tea or ginger pickles.

Try to repeat the science experiment by comparing the effects of ginger on male and female participants.
