Science Fair Connection:

Planting and growing plants isn't a science fair project, but if you add in a variable, you can definitely turn the activity into a project. If you isolate a component of the experiment and change it, you've found a variable. When you change a variable you might see drastic changes‚ but then again you might not. That's why they call it experimenting! Here are some examples of variables that you can change to turn Diggin' Dirty Science into an awesome science fair project:

  • Try different ratios of Water Jelly Crystals to soil and measure which is the best for growing.
  • Test what watering schedule works best.
  • Find out what temperature is best for growing your plant.

Those are just a few examples of the variables that you can use. Remember that you must keep all other factors the same. If you're testing different watering schedules, you need to use the same type of plant seed, growing temperature, and Water Jelly Crystal to soil ratio.

Customer Reviews

Dirt not Dirty Review by Shelby

I purely wanted to see if i could grow plants just on the water crystals. I was looking at the best price to do it at and this was the best price I was shocked it came with so many cristals. I believe I have enough to do my whole indoor garden this year. If this works good I can water once a day and it won't dry out as fast. I really like it a lot I wished it came with a few more test tubes so I bought some single experiments also. I really like all of the science toys I got. (Posted on 5/22/13)
