Info

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...

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.

Warm regards,

The PlantingScience Team

    Hi, team! That is a nice graph. It’s missing something on the left side (the “Y-axis”). 3, 4, or 5.. whats? :-)

Here is the link to the graph of our data.

    You can't add links, if you email me the graph I can upload it to files.

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?

 

    Julia G
    said

    Yes, we've finished most of the experiment. Now we're just typing out our final lab report.

Thanks for the photos, team! Looks like you are documenting the experiment well. How are the plants (the roots and shoots) doing?

    Julia G
    said

    Yesterday I took the seeds home and put them in pots with dirt, they are looking way better (I also put some light on them and watered them when I planted them)

Most of the pea seeds are brown, I think it's because they don't have enough room to grow.

All of the seeds in all of the containers have started growing roots! Yesterday I gave the 1 tsp less than half of a tsp of water since they looked dried out.

    said

    Very exciting observations! I'm not sure if you had planned to give water to the dried out seeds, but if you had not planned to water them then you do not need to. It is often important to follow the experimental design like a baking recipe; however, sometimes there are good reasons to change an experiment during it. I'm looking forward to seeing your data!

    I agree with Simon, if you added water to one of them... Did you add water to all of them? Your investigation is based on the amount of water... so it is important be very consistent with your guidelines for water!
