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

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

ollecram 10-24-2009 11:45 PM
