Explore Hello, I’m Luke, I’m not very fond of planting. Some plants are tasty and some make me breathe so I'm ok with plants. Hello, I’m Jazzlyn, I have a good amount of experience with planting. My family and I don’t exactly have a farm but you could consider it. We have multiple vegetable...
Research Question Can corn grow if watered with water that has salt dissolved in it? We are interested to help agriculture in areas with less rainwater and more brackish water. We hope to figure out a solution for this problem by asking this question and testing it.
Predictions We think that the roots will shrivel up and rot in the 0.8g salt concentration, it will not grow as big or as fast as it would in the 0.4g salt concentration, and it will grow pretty well in the .1g salt concentration. We think that the control with no salt will grow the best. These...
Experimental Design Materials: Salt: .8 times three=2.4 .4 times three=1.2 .1times three=.3 12 pots ¾ cup of soil per pot (times twelve)=nine cups sixty corn seeds-five per pot 39 grams of salt Steps: Step 1: Put 3/4 of a cup of soil into a pot and plant 5 corn seeds 2 inches down, spread 2 centimeters...
Conclusion The data we collected partially supports our prediction. We thought that the roots would shrivel up and rot in the 0.8 g salt concentration, it would not grow as big or as fast as it would in the 0.4 g salt concentration, and it will grow pretty well in the .1 g salt concentration. We think that...
About this Project

The students was passionate about their experiment. The students and mentor discussed about their experiment everyday. The students asked questions and updated their progress daily to their mentor. This team made great communication with the mentor by updating their work process and data....

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.

Dear Dragon Blood Trees -

Please give yourselves a round of high fives for bringing your project to a successful conclusion.  You overcame some difficult initial problems and decisions and then really got busy figuring things out as you went through the experiment.  I was impressed with your postings to this website, which were among the most literate I have seen in years.  I greatly enjoyed meeting you by Zoom, and I wish there had been more time to have additional meetings towards the middle and end of the project. 

Best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving and a successful completion of this first half of the school year.

Yours sincerely,

Andrew Schnabel

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 Friday, November 19, 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
