|Explore||They need CO2, water, sunlight, energy, also known as ATP to help plants grow. Plants go through photosynthesis. Different types of plants need different things or more amounts of one thing than others to live.|
|Research Question||How much water do plants need to have a better growth speed?|
|Predictions||Seed size will affect the speed growth of a plant because if the seed is smaller they don't need as much water till they start growing and getting bigger.|
|Experimental Design||3 petri dishes with different amounts of water. One with 1 tsp of water, one with 1 1/2 tsp of water, and one with 1 tbs of water.|
|Conclusion||Claim: If you put more water in a petri dish then the one with the most water will grow faster than the one with not a lot of water. Evidence: This is because we put one petri dish full with 1 tsp of water and one with 1 ½ tsp of water and one with 1 tbsp of water, the one with 1 ½ tsp of...|
|About this Project||
The whole process was (exciting for all involved), the mentor is responsive and encouraging, the students love to ask questions and show their initiatives on looking for answers.
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. You have until Tuesday, April 25, 2021, to post ALL of your updates, comments, and goodbyes. 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.
The PlantingScience Team
Thank you, pink flamingos! It was great working with you, and seeing how much care you put into your plants. I wish you the best on your studies!
Thank you, Simon, for helping us along the way with our pea seed investigation! I hope you enjoyed our information we collected because I certainly did!
Thank you for helping us with our project! It went very well and we wish we could keep doing it! But I hope you have a nice day.

Hello, team — Very exciting work! Please let me know if you have any questions for me.
Hello, pink flamingos — It sounds like a lot may be happening!
I just wanted to confirm that you are measuring the roots to see how fast the plants are growing. Have you been measuring the roots daily, like you mentioned in a previous post?
And if you've moved your seeds out of the petri dishes and into pots, does this mean you are done with the experiment?
Thanks for the photos, team! Looks like you are documenting the experiment well. How are the plants (the roots and shoots) doing?
