Mrs. Taisha March

The purpose of this project is to identify the best color for reading letters from a distance. Humans can see a range of colors and often have to be able to clearly identify letters to read from a distance. I am trying to identify the easiest color to see. This will help to make sure everyone can read clearly in situations such as a student reading a white board.

How does growing space affect the height of a Helinathus annuus plant?

Plant Sciences
Miles Ball David Bruce Oakley

Grade:
10
Teacher:
Dr. Michael Frank

"Our project was to see and evaluate the factors that could affect the height of plants. In our experiment, it is for the Helianthus annuus plant which is a much bigger plant that requires a bigger growing space. The results of the project gave us answers and showed us that growing space does play a role in a plant's height. The reason this is an important experiment is that it can lead others to learn from it possibly and have them develop other questions for plants. However for us personally we wanted to see if growing space was really an important factor in a plant's height/development."
