  1. Your research methods, data, and conclusions were very clear and well laid out. There was so much variance between the trials, I’d be curious to see this recreated with larger test groups. Great job!

  2. This was a great research question and project. I think that it also has the potential for a lot of other applications. Would all seeds germinate best at 66 degrees? It would be interesting to observe other bean germination rates to see if they are similar, and compare those to other crops that may be planted in warmer weather, like tomato, peppers, etc. Keep thinking of good questions!
