science fair! again?!

Since I'm in 12th grade, I'm not required to take part in the science fair anymore, but this year my teacher is giving us a huge incentive to be in it. He's giving us a raise of a whole letter grade. as in ten to 15 points on your class average. I need this extra credit so i wanted to do my project on something fish or aquarium related. do you guys have any cool ideas?

Those points are hard to pass up! Good luck with it!
Maybe a project on growing aquarium plants?

deff plants unless you have the money for a nano reef aquarium. for a planted tank you could do something with photosynthesis or the balancing of nutrients combined with light and co2

its a half a inch of water and you think your gunna drown

I searched a bit online and i thought that this would be a good topic.


Effects of different colors of light on the photosynthesis rate.
seems like it could be fun. does this mean i would get bulbs with different color temperatures and test them with plants? or does it mean actually using a blue light bulb and a red one and so on? hmm

it would mean getting the color bulbs. i would personaly get a bucket and a small sponge filter, get some lillys or sumthing then spend the money on the light and bulb. i would first add a few plants use 1 color buld, add some more with a color mark on them then watch them then next color more with diferent mark. that would be so much fun

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
