bhsdobsonfall2019 project 4

Project by group bhsdobsonfall2019


Info

Explore We know that plants need soil, water, and light to grow from our experiences outside of school. In class we discovered that plants photosynthesize and preform cellular respiration. Where do plants get their mass from?
Research Question Do different plants photosynthesize at different rates?
Predictions We think that plants do photosynthesize at different rates because of their size. The bigger the plant the more light it can absorb, then is photosynthesizes at a faster rate than smaller plants.
Experimental Design We put 3 grams of three different kinds of plants (Submerged, terrestrial, and floating) in Phenol Red and put them under a light for 24 hours to see which would photosynthesize at the highest rate.
Conclusion We found that the Elodea (the submerged plant) performed photosynthesis at the highest rate. The Phenol Red with the spinach (the terrestrial plant) stayed the same and surprisingly, the the Phenol Red with the Duckweed (the floating plant) turned yellow. We believe the reason for this is because...
About this Project

This team did a great job designing an investigation around the different types of aquatic plants. They applied what we were learning about to what they see in their lives. Its great when what kids are doing in school melds with their experiences outside of school! Their mentor did a great job...

Updates

Get to know your team’s scientist mentor, who will encourage and guide you through the scientific process of discovery. The more you share your ideas and research info, the more your mentor can help. You may also hear from a scientist mentor liaison who will be helping all the teams in your class.

Farewell and Best Wishes
As this research project is now in the final stages of wrapping-up, we wish to thank everyone who participated in this inquiry; the students, mentors, teachers and others behind the scenes. We appreciate all of your efforts and contributions to this online learning community.

Scientific exploration is a process of discovery that can be fun! There are many unanswered questions about plants just waiting for new scientists to consider, investigate, and share.

After the end of the session, we will be updating the platform and archiving groups and projects, after which time new updates/posts will not be able to be added to projects or groups. Please come back and visit the PlantingScience Project Gallery anytime to view this project in the future. You can search the Gallery by keyword, team name, topic, or school name.

Good bye for now.
Warm regards,
The PlantingScience team

Looks like you are in the final stages of your projects.
It’s great to see that teams from your school are wrapping up and posting conclusions. Enjoy the final stages of your project, and feel free to post any final comments or questions you have for your mentors.

Dear Jeremy, Zachary, and Mercedeez

You are very welcome.  In the 10 yr or so I’ve been doing this, you folks were probably the most involved and responsive group I’ve worked with.  The pleasure was mine.  I wish you well in your future studies.

Cheers, Dr. Dan

Dear Dr. Dan,

I would like to thank you for all the questions you have answered. We have learned so much about  photosynthesis. Without you we wouldn't have been able to have the success that we did.

Goodbye,

Jeremy

Hola, Dr. Dan, how are you? 

So after our experiment we found that the control (Which was just phenol red in a cup) became slightly darker. Do you know why this happened? We can't figure it out. 

Gracias, 

Zachary
