Does highlighting what you read help you remember more easily?
This science fair project was performed to find out if students using a highlighter while studying would be able to recall facts better. The experiment was done by comparing the test scores of participants who were given an essay to study without the use of a highlighter, with those who were given an essay that was already highlighted, as well as those who were allowed to make their own highlights
How does breakfast help improve a studentsĺ performance?
This science fair project was performed to find out if having breakfast every morning will help to improve the performance of students in school. The studentsĺ performance was tested by giving them memory tests and comparing the performance of those who had breakfast with those who had skipped breakfast.
Examine the interactions of class A and C ▀-lactamases as they interact with ▀-lactam antibiotics.
▀-lactamases are the principal agents of bacterial resistance to many penicillins, cephalosporins, and other ▀-lactam antibiotics. The main objective is to understand the interactions of class A and C ▀-lactamases as they interact with ▀-lactam antibiotics in order to model a non-▀-lactam inhibitor into the active site. This would stop the hydrolytic power of ▀-lactamases and rejuvenate ▀-lactam a
Determine if translation and transcription of RNA in cells affects the levels of Ribonuclease H (RNase H)
Ribonuclease H is an enzyme that may be useful as a treatment for breast cancer because it can stop the production of estrogen in tumor cells. To find more about this enzyme, the purpose of this experiment was to determine if translation and transcription of RNA in cells affects the levels of Ribonuclease H (RNase H).
Generational effects of acid rain on Drosophila melanogaster
The purpose of this experiment was to test the effects of acid rain on several generations of living organisms. This researcher was interested in exploring whether mutations, found in an acid environment would also be observed if the offspring were removed from the acid environment into a neutral environment. Drosophila melanogaster were selected as subjects, due to their short life span, ease of
Which Parent Affects Fingerprint Pattern Types More?
The purpose of my project is to find out if the male parent or the female parent affects the offspring's fingerprints more.
Does Mass Affect the Emergence of a Soybean Seed?
The purpose of this project is to determine if mass affects the emergence of a soybean seed. This experiment was set up to verify if the size of a soybean affects how it grows.
Pavlovian conditioning in plants
This science fair project was performed to ascertain if Pavlovian conditioning works in plants. The The science project experiment involved the Mimosa Pudica plant.
How good is a person's sense of smell?
Many of the experiments detailed below require that a blindfold be used. Keep in mind that some people do not like to be blindfolded...you could ask them to keep their eyes closed, but don't count on them having their eyes closed for a very long time. Also, some people are very sensitive to smells, so be careful.
Observing blood cells
What are blood cells? What do they look like? What functions do they perform? How can I recognize the different categories? This is a short description of the blood cells and includes a simple experiment which allows you to become familiar with the cells of this precious liquid. The blood consists of a suspension of special cells in a liquid called plasma. In an adult man, the blood is about 1/
