What are good questions for a science fair?

What are good questions for a science fair?

20 Questions you should expect include:

  • Where did you get this idea?
  • How did you come up with this title?
  • What research did you do?
  • What was your hypothesis?
  • Why did you think that would happen?
  • What were your independent and dependent variables?
  • What was your control?
  • What did you measure and how?

What is the best plant to use for a science fair project?

Bulbs. Tulips, roses and other bulb-based plants can be used for science projects. If planted at the right time of year — a few months before the start of spring — then they will grow very fast for a late spring science fair.

What experiment can we do with plants?

With some natural light and a wet paper towel, you can germinate seeds in plastic bags so that students can see the gradual changes in the seeds as they opens up. Some simple experiments with seeds in small plastic cups or egg cartons can also teach students exactly what seeds need in order to grow.

Do plants have feelings?

Some plants even have specialised leaves to sense and respond to certain sensations. For example, sensitive plants (Mimosa pudica) have leaves that fold inwards when touched to prevent themselves from being damaged.

What do plants need the most experiment?

They obtain their food from plants or from other animals. Plants need water and light to live and grow. Patterns in the natural and human designed world can be observed and used as evidence.

What are some unanswered questions in biology?

Unsolved problems relating to the structure and function of non-human organs, processes and biomolecules include:

  • Alkaloids.
  • Korarchaeota (archaea).
  • Glycogen body.
  • Arthropod head problem.
  • Ovaries of basking sharks.
  • Brightly colored bird eggs.
  • Stegosaur osteoderms/scutes.

What are some unanswered questions?

The Meaning of Life—And 27 Other Major Unanswered Questions in Science

  • How exactly did life begin?
  • Why do we dream?
  • Is there a pattern behind prime numbers?
  • What is the cure for cancer?
  • Can we travel through time?
  • Is our universe the only one?
  • What exactly is consciousness?
  • Where is all the antimatter?

Do plants have eyes?

These rods and cones contain protein pigments which absorb certain wavelengths (colors) and eventually transmit this information to the brain. Obviously plants don’t have eyes. However, they are able to “sense” and physiologically respond specifically to the ratio of red light and far-red light, and blue light.

Why do we ask questions about plants?

I hope you’re starting to see there’s a whole art and science behind asking good questions about plants. The right question asked at the right moment can inspire an endless journey of discovery that nurtures our own love of nature, and helps to mentor the next generation of passionate naturalists.

How do you approach as plant science questions?

As plant science is a broad and diverse field, we provide brief explanations of the background, context and prospects for addressing each question with the aim of making the questions accessible to the broadest possible audience. There is no ideal way to divide the questions into topic areas.

What is wrong with school education in Plant Science?

School education does not include the most interesting or relevant aspects of plant science, and discourages young people from studying the subject at university. This is indefensible in a world with such a strong requirement for outstanding plant scientists, and steps should be taken to put it right.

Do we need a new era of collaboration in Plant Science?

There is general agreement that we need a new era of collaboration between all types of plant scientists, geographers, geologists, statisticians, mathematicians, engineers, computer scientists, and other biologists to evaluate complex data, find new relationships, develop and test hypotheses, and make discoveries.
