Music Science Fair Project

Music and Plant Growth

Music and Plant Growth | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Ever wondered if music can make plants grow faster? This science project will explore the effects of classical music on the growth of radish plants.


The hypothesis is that playing classical music beside the plant everyday will make it grow faster.

Method & Materials

You will need two plastic pots, soil, a CD player, a classical music CD, tap water, and a ruler. You will place ten radish seeds in each pot, place one pot beside the CD player for three hours a day with classical music playing, and measure the height of the plants every day.
You will need a packet of radish seeds, two plastic pots, soil, a CD player, a classical music CD, tap water, and a ruler.


The results of the experiment showed that the average height and growth rate of the radish plants in pot A (the plants provided with music stimuli) were greater than that of the plants in pot B. The seeds in pot A were also able to germinate a day earlier.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it explores the effects of music on plant growth, which is still a debatable subject among scientists and experts.

Also Consider

Consider repeating the science fair project using different types of music like jazz, pop, rock or country. You can also modify the project by talking to the plants everyday.
