This is Jason, Peyton, and Stella we are learning about ecosystems in class. In our science group, we are starting a new experiment. The question we are asking is, “Does the amount of CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) affect plant growth?” First, we got 2 plant containers and filled them with an inch of soil. Last, we added 4 seeds to each container along with 120 milliliters of Patoka water. The reason we have 2 containers is because we are going to give one extra CO2 by talking to it daily. We know that humans breathe in Oxygen and let out CO2 to so by talking to it, it will get CO2. Each of us get 20 seconds to talk every day. The other container will have room air. We will compare the plants and see what the result of the experiment is whenever it is completed.
Hi, this is Abby, Savannah, and Liliann. In our lab, we are testing how different types of seeds grow better in the same environment. We have researched and found some useful information about the types of seeds we are studying. Our hypothesis is “If we water all of the seeds the same, the Black-Eyed susan will grow great along with the purple coneflowers”. Each environment includes the same amount of soil, same kind of water [Patoka Water], sunlight, same depth of the seed, and the same size of the container. We set the experiment up first, by getting a round, plastic container. Then, we put in a half a cup of soil. Next, we planted the seeds we planted at the Pete Dye golf Course including the Black Eyed Susan seeds and the Purple Coneflower seeds. Then, we planted the seeds one centimeter in the soil, and gently watered them with fifty milliliter, for three days. Then, we will not water them for two days. We set up our control by first, putting a half a cup of soil in the same size container that we used for the other environments. Then, we planted four seeds of both kinds of plant species in the same container. Finally, we watered it with fifty milliliters of water. We are excited to find out what the results are going to be!
Our group, Gracie, Maci, and Olivia, are starting a new science lab. We are testing if different types of water affect plant growth. We are having one person testing distilled water as the control, one with Patoka water, and one with bottled water. Our group has a graduated cylinder, 3 cups, a plastic container, and 5 seeds for each cup. We will water our plants every other day with 15 milliliters of water in each cup of soil. At the end of our project, we will compare the plants with the control and see how they are different.
Our group is Cambry, Carley, and Hunter. In this experiment, we are testing different sized containers, and how they affect plant growth. We are doing this experiment because at your house, you may have plants in different sized pots. This experiment is different from our last experiment because last time we all added 4 seeds every day, and we only watered it once. Last time we had an invasive water plant called Duckweed. In this experiment we have our plants outside, and we only added 4 seeds. We are watering it every Monday. In this experiment, each group has their own question, and each group has their own control. Our question is “How will a container with a diameter of 9cm compare to one with 11 4/10 c. and how will a container with a diameter of 9cm differ from one with a 13cm diameter?” Something that our group is doing the same is we are using the same seeds and the same type of water. One thing that we aren’t doing the same is that we aren’t using the same amount of water, and we are putting it a different place. We are using 60 ml., and we are putting it outside this time.
After setting up the experiment, we have been recording what the plants look like. At the end of this experiment, we will compare and contrast this experiment and our last experiment.
Our names are Taisha, Braydon, and Cameron, and we are doing an experiment on plants related to our ecosystem in our class. In the last experiment we did in our class, the plants’ roots were not spreading because there was not enough room. That put weight on the top of the plants which made them fall over. The lack of big roots also made the plants less healthy. The plants then began to turn white from the lack of nutrients. That made us decide to use two different plants with higher and lower amounts of soil. We did that to see if the plants would be healthier in more soil. So, we set up a new experiment. One container has 6 centimeters of soil, and the other has 3 centimeters of soil. We want to see the growth difference in the plants when one has more soil. We will then compare the different results for our plants and those of other students.
Greetings, come learn about science with us; Willson, Lorraine, and Anton. We are informing others on what we are doing in our new experiment. In it, we are testing what happens if the seeds from the Pete Dye Golf Course grow better in different types of soil. When we know what type of soil it grows in best, we can share the information on our blog so others can grow more plants in that type of soil. In our experiment, we will find out if the seeds grow better in clay (natural) soil or potting soil. We believe that the seeds will grow best in potting soil. We added 6 seeds to each container of soil, before adding 100 milliliters of water. So far, no seeds have grown. But we are still waiting for results.
This is Trey, McKinley, and Zach’s science project. In the last experiment, we found out that we need sunlight, and we need to keep watering it. We also found out that planting in deep soil is better for the plants because there is more room for roots to expand, and the more soil there is, there are more nutrients for the plants. From all of that information we gathered, we have decided to see if the plants grow better in shallow soil or deep soil. Our hypothesis is that we think that the plants will grow better in deep soil because there is enough room for roots, and there are more nutrients which makes plants healthier. We also think that the control will not grow because the seeds aren’t sinking in the soil and are not soaking up the water quickly. We think that with more soil, it can soak up water easier than with less soil, therefore the plants in the deep soil will grow stronger and healthier. We are sticking the seeds in the deep soil down towards the bottom of the cup, and on the shallow, we almost put them on the surface getting enough nutrients to grow strong. So far, we have watered the plants three times and the deep is soaking up the water for the plants and not getting over-flooded since it is soaking in the soil. Now, we have to see which plant will grow the tallest, the deepest, or the shallowest in all containers. We hope our experiment will be a success.
