Current Major Science Project


Many of you may remember signing a letter with information regarding our major growing project.  The students have chosen their own experimental design and have planted both a control and experimental pot with four green bean seeds in each. 

Some of the experimental variables students have chosen include:

Watering with: Dr. Pepper, Vitamin water, KoolAid, Propel, Gatorade

Planting in: regular dirt (instead of potting soil), sand, bone meal, mulch, gravel, a glass bowl

Growing: in a closet, under a blacklight, under artifical light

The students are really excited right now because the plants are beginning to emerge.  I've told them we won't be harvesting bushels of green beans, but they still discuss their plans for their plant's output as though we are!

Ask about your child's experiment!
