Most of my family gardens so I spend time helping my mom, grammie, and papa with their gardens at home. Ben- I like plants...|
|Research Question||Does salt affect the the growth rate and height of a cress plant? Does salt affect seed germination of cress?|
|Predictions||We think that the plant will survive for some time with the salt. We think that some seeds will germinate but not all. With a ton of salt it might survive for a week but no longer.|
|Experimental Design||Materials -ten containers -200 cress seeds -5 cups of soil -5 Liters of water -50 grams of salt -5 Paper Towels -5 petri dishes -5 water container- Soda bottles? -5 graduated cylinders EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Put soil in containers mix water Put...|
|Conclusion||The data supported our prediction that the plants will survive for some time with some salt, maybe a week or so, and the plants with less salt would survive longer. It also supported our prediction that some seeds will germinate but not all. We can prove this with our healthy plants chart. One...|
Team - great PPT presentation! I especially liked the last slide Glad I could help a little! Also be sure to thank your teacher; you are lucky to have a great teacher like Ms. Buzzell - she's the best!
My introductory college biology students are doing similar research projects now. I hope that their work is as good as yours!
Great work and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Steve
Super job Team!!! I'm very impressed with the excellent work you've done. You should be proud. I'm happy to have been a part of your team. Steve
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.

Hi All! You've been busy again! Nice job. Your conclusions are coming along great. It looks like you are nearly finished. I like the way you basically have separate sections in the conclusions for the data including sections on: (a) how salt affects height of seedlings, (b) how salt affect whether the seeds are happy (i.e., growing upright and looking healthy), (c) how salt affects seed germination. So, what overall conclusion can you make? Can the seedlings tolerate any salt? how much is too much? Is this amount what you would expect in the ocean, or even on a roadside after winter salting? I'm impressed with your work. You should be proud. Steve
Thank you for being over mentor and helping us in this experiment and we will be adding a presentation next week.
