lostinderfall2020 project 1 Yoav, Toby, Benjamin

Project by group lostinderfall2020

Info

Explore Don't set them on fire, they need water, sunlight, and maybe fertilizer (manure) and they give us fresh oxygen.
Research Question Will the amount of water given to the plant each day affect its growth and health?
Predictions We think the one with more water will grow more.
Experimental Design We will fill 2 egg cartoon sized thing with backyard soil and put a pea seed in each egg cartoon sized thing. Each day at 2:50 we will water each plant. The first plant we will water 1 teaspoon of lukewarm water and another plant with 1 1/2 teaspoon of lukewarm water for about 2.5 - 3 weeks. We...
Conclusion Our conclusion is that we are still unsure of how much water the plant needs because Tobys seed 2 didn't grow at all and Yoavs seed 1 didn't grow at all and Benjamins seeds both grew but Seed 2 grew more.

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.

Wow, Team!

You all got really interesting results. And I totally agree that there is some conflicting information there. It's possible that there were other factors that affected the germination of your seeds separately, including that the seeds may not have been good ones to begin with. Very, very cool! Great job putting the presentation together, and congratulations on an awesome experiment.

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

Hi Team,

It has been brought to my attention that we cannot access or request access to Google docs in order to preserve your privacy. Please upload files you want to share with me or your mentor to the "Files" tab on the project page (can be found on the top-left, under your avatar).

Apologies for any confusion this has caused. Please ignore any requests for access to the document.

Thank you.

Hello, and welcome to a new session of PlantingScience! I am the liaison for this group, and my role is to facilitate the conversation between the teams and your mentors when needed.

A little about me: I am a PhD student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and I study how plants responsd to their environment across their different life stages. Because plants face so many different environmental factors throughout their life, it's important to know how the strategies they use to deal with their environment changes when they may be limited by size or resources, as they go from seedlings to juveniles to adults.

I love to do experiments, and working with plants is very fun, so I am excited about this new session!

Welcome to your PlantingScience project page!

Welcome to this community of plant researchers. As your team plans and conducts your own research project, you will be mentored by a scientist. The mentor's role is to encourage and guide you through the process of scientific discovery. The more you share your ideas and research information online, the more your mentor can help. You can also find out more about your mentor. What is their research about? Why did they go into science? What do they like to do when they are not working?

You may also hear from this classroom’s assigned scientist liaison. Liaisons work with several mentors and help make sure the conversations are going strong. They may also offer some extra advice or encouragement.

Two resources can help you get started:

Best wishes as you start this scientific journey. We are all pleased to share this experience with you. Have fun!

To set up your project page:

  • Choose your project team name. Need inspiration? Visit the project gallery to see other student teams.
  • Upload a photo or avatar for your team.
  • Introduce yourselves to your scientist mentor and get the conversation started!
  • PLEASE ONLY CLICK "Share with team" ONCE. Sometimes the page takes a little while to refresh, so please be patient!
  • In order to protect student privacy, please DO NOT share:
    • last names
    • social media handles
    • links to Google/Sharepoint documents, spreadsheets, or images
  • We will remove these items as we find them in posts.
