Understanding the greenhouse effect
This science fair project was conducted to find out how different surface conditions affect atmospheric temperatures caused by the greenhouse effect. The testing was done using a surface of water, sand, black soil and carpet grass.
The insulating properties of fabric
This experiment was conducted to compare the ability of different types of fabrics to keep us warm on cold days. The tests were done using air, Thinsulate and cotton fleece.
Building materials for earthquake-prone areas
This experiment was conducted to evaluate what building material is suitable for use in earthquake prone areas. The testing was done using timber, bricks and concrete.
Demonstrate how erosion happens in different ways
No matter where you look, the land you see is a battleground. On one side of the battle are the forces beneath the surface. These forces cause the crust to be faulted, folded, tilted, and lifted. On the other side of the battle are the natural processes of weathering and erosion. Once rock has been broken up by weathering the small pieces can be moved by water, ice, wind, or gravity. Ev
What is the effect of light on a Crayfish?
The purpose of this experiment was to determine if Crayfish are attracted to light or repelled by light. I became interested in this idea when I had Crayfish for a class pet in fourth grade, and didnít know weather to leave the lights on around them or to leave them in a dark area.
What does a barometer do? Make your own barometer to demonstrate how it can be used
What is air pressure? Did you know you can make something that will measure air pressure? You can actually do a bit of weather predicting from a simple made-at-home piece of equipment.
Understanding the El Nino effect
This lesson is a good one for students to have a better understanding for their environment. It is important for students to have an understanding for the things around them. El Nino effects us every 3-5 years and that will definitely be in the students life time. It is important for students to know about the weather patterns and how they are effected by the El Nino effect. Through doing this le
What is the water cycle?
Precipitation, evaporation, and transpiration are all terms that sound familiar, yet may not mean much to you. They are all part of the water cycle, a complex process that not only gives us water to drink, fish to eat, but also weather patterns that help grow our crops.
Does classical music help plants grow?
My hypothesis is that classical music will help the plants to grow. I also believe that the plants that listen to country will have their growth stunted.
What is the effect of acid rain on Lichens?
The purpose for this experiment is to investigate the effect of acidic solution on fruticose, foliose, and crustose lichens. This experiment is being done to model the effect of acid rain on lichens in the natural environment and to use this information to determine if these lichens can be used as bioindicators.
