What is the Effect of Different Carbohydrates on Yeast Fermentation?
The purpose of this experiment is to determine the effect of different carbohydrates on the amount of C02 produced in yeast fermentation. If yeast can break down table sugar, a disaccharide, into two molecules of monosaccharides (D-glucose and D-fructose), and ferment those monosaccharides, then it can ferment other disaccharides and monosaccharides.
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.
How much does a typical student know about endangered species?
We would like to do a survey research project on student knowledge about endangered and extinct animals. Our hypothesis states that the majority of the responses to the factual questions on the questionnaire will be correct.
Is it possible to collect micrometeorites from the outdoors?
Collect micrometeorites from indoor and outdoor sources.
How does a bar magnet's field interact with the earth's magnetic field?
The magnetic field around a permanent magnet, like the gravitational field around a massive object, is not only invisible, but hard for students to comprehend. With no concrete experience to draw from, they tend to ignore this basic concept, or at best, memorize facts about it. This activity shows how to map a magnetic field, and to find how a bar magnet's field combines with the Earth's magnetic
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.
What sort of fabric would best keep an astronaut warm?
My hypothesis is that spacesuit prototype #3 will be the prototype that will conserve more heat than prototypes #1 and #2. Prototype #3 has 6 layers. It has foam, fleece, and camouflage for warmth. #2 has 5 layers. It has foam and camouflage for warmth. #1 has 7 layers. It has fleece, Aluminized Mylar, and camouflage for warmth.
Explain the process of protein synthesis
Explain the process of protein synthesis through the use of a fairy tale analogy. Prior to this lesson, students should already have knowledge about DNA structure, RNA structure, and complementary base pairs
Understanding the health effects of the ozone
This paper tests whether individuals engage in avoidance behavior in response to information about pollution, and whether this behavior explains the lack of epidemiological evidence of an association between ozone and health. To ascertain whether ozone affects health, I first test whether “smog alerts” lower the incidence of asthma hospitalizations in Southern California from 1989 through 1997.
