Sunlight and bacteria growth in aquatic environments
This science fair project was done to ascertain the relationship between the exposure of water to sunlight, and the amount of bacteria in the water. The science fair project experiment was performed on tap water, drain water and water from a lake.
Decomposition of bio-degradable plastic spoons
This science fair project was done to evaluate the rate of decomposition of bio-degradable plastic in the natural environment. Biodegradable spoons are supposed to decompose with time, but exactly how soon does this process take place? The experiment involved using disposable spoons made from corn starch, wheat and plastic. These spoons were planted in soil.
Concentration of disinfectant and survivability of bacteria
The purpose of this experiment is to determine the relationship between the concentration of disinfectant and its effectiveness in destroying bacteria.
The effect of pollutants on light bioluminescent bacteria
This year for our science fair project we decided to work with bioluminescent bacteria. We heard of bioluminescent bacteria through our science teacher. From there we decided to investigate. Bioluminescence is the giving off of light by an organism without heat. We read that bioluminescent bacteria are being used to diagnose the amount of pollution in water. We believe that the pollutants
How much do students know about pollution?
We would like to do a survey research project to find out what students know and feel about air pollution. Our hypothesis states that the majority of the responses to the factual questions about air pollution on the questionnaire will be answered correctly.
Is the burning of trash a viable alternative to land-fills?
In this experiment I plan to prove that burning trash is a good alternative to landfills. Burning trash takes up less space and creates less pollution. The danger of the overfilling of landfills prompted my research. Burning trash creates less pollution and takes up less space.
How soil management affect soil quality?
Soil is one of our most precious natural resources, as it integrates all parts of the ecosystem. It provides a medium for plant growth so that we can have food, clothing, and other materials. Soil filters water, decomposes waste, stores heat, and exchanges gases. Soil is alive- it is the home to billions of micro- and macroscopic organisms. It is a material used for construction, medicine, and art
How does acid rain affect seed germination?
The purpose of this experiment was to determine the effect of acid on seed germination. I became interested in this idea because I know that acid rain is becoming a factor in pollution around the world. I know this from books I've studied and news articles Iíve read
How do different Types of Soil Affect the Growth of a Pinto Bean?
The purpose of this experiment was to see how different soils affect the growth of a pinto bean. The information gained from this experiment will help produce more trees and plants faster, so they can clean the polluted air around the plant's area. Also knowing this information will help farmers produce more vegetable
What effects would changes in the ozone layer have on Antarctica's penguin population?
The penguin population in Antarctica is diminishing. Scientific teams have already investigated predator-prey relationships, disease, and environmental pollution as possible causes. Data has been collected and analyzed. No correlation has been found between these factors and the penguins' decline. The International Symposium on Environmental Issues is meeting late next year in Sydney, Australia. E
