What makes this a star project?

This group really engaged this project. They put a great deal of time into designing their experiment and trying to control all variables but the one being tested. They were excited about the opportunity to design their own experiment and they were able to act as developing scientists to harvest meaningful data and enliven the content with rigor and relevance.
