Comparing the learning abilities of hamsters and mice
This experiment was performed to find out if hamsters and mice are able to learn and recall what is learnt. The experiment also compares the speed of learning of hamsters and mice.
A comparison of the thermal insulation properties of different clothing materials
This science fair project was conducted to compare the thermal insulation properties of clothes that are made of different materials (wool, cotton, polyester, flannel and Gore-Tex).
What colors are birds attracted to?
This experiment asks a simple question: what colors are birds attracted to? The birds in this experiment were shown feeders that had different colors (red, orange, blue, green and white).
Comparing the competitive nature of roosters and hens

The relationship between the size of a bird and its perching behavior
This experiment was conducted to investigate the relationship between the size of a bird and its perching behavior. Specifically, does the size of a bird affect the distance that it puts between itself and another bird, when both are perching on a wire? Crows and house sparrows were used as subjects for this experiment.
Territorial behavior of hamsters
This science fair project was done to find out if hamsters are territorial animals. The tests were done by placing several pairs of hamsters in cages and observing their behavior.
Effect of milk on plant growth

This experiment was conducted to find out whether the fauna inhabiting the soil will help with soil fertility and plant growth. The experiment was done using ants together with radish plants.
The effectiveness of household cleaning agents for killing bacteria
This science fair project was done to find out how effective common household cleaning agents are against bacteria. The science project experiment involved using water, dishwashing liquid, Dettol and Clorox.
How far can a squirrel jump?
We know that squirrels are able to hop and jump a great distance - but exactly how far can a squirrel really jump? Some say its more than 10 times the length of their bodies! This science fair project was conducted to answer this question. Our experiment involves making squirrels jump from one table to another and increasing the distance between the tables gradually, to ascertain the limits.
