Info

Explore The two main parts of a chloroplast are the grana and stroma The green color of leaves is due to chlorophyll , what interest me about plant is are Plants the only organisms that use photosynthesis.
Research Question Does photosynthesis occur differently when the plant is a color other than green? We came up with this question by observing the color plant and thinking where do they get their colorful color from? This question fit with the topic in class the topic we were talking about is chlorophyll which is...
Predictions Our prediction is that photosynthesis won't change when the plant is a color other than green. It would depend on the amount of sunlight the plant gets.
Experimental Design We are going to observe the growth of the plants. The variables that will be tested are penta plants. The variables that will be measured will be the color of light. The variable that will be kept constant will be the water. We will record our data in our lab notebooks.
Conclusion To wrap it up white (natural) light height got bigger by 5 more centimeters, width got bigger by 2 cm, depth grow 2 more centimeters also. Blue light for height grow 2 cm, the width grows just 1 centimeter, the depth grows 2 centimeters. red light height row 3 centimeters, the width got smaller...
About this Project

In brainstorming their research question these students utilized phenomena they observed in class to design their experiment. Their data collection is reflected in their conclusion. They utilized the suggestions made by their mentor. Most importantly, they were amazed by the results of their...

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 Thursday, December 09, 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

No, I'm not surprised by the results. I think they grew the biggest in white light because they were used to it already. And thank you for being there for us when we needed you and with our project.

Yes, I thought the natural red or blue light would have a big difference due to the color but the white/natural light grew the biggest in my opinion I think because it doesn't have a strong color.

I see that you've wrapped up your experiment! Are you surprised by the results? Why do you think the plants in white/natural light grew the biggest?
