Science Fair Project Connections:
Caution: Diggin’ Science can lead to a love of plants and growing things! It’s a pretty fantastic demonstration that reveals sprouting seeds, growing plants, and how using superabsorbent polymers to water them can be a great idea. However, a successful science fair project must be an experiment, not a demo. How do you know if a project is an experiment? Answer “Yes” to these questions and you’re on the right track.
- Do you have a question that needs an answer?
- Do you have a prediction what the answer might be?
- Do you have real tests to run to find the real answer?
- Do you have something to change in the tests to make comparisons?
- Do you know how to organize the data so others can test your work?
To develop a science fair project, you need to identify and test variables. A variable is something you change that might alter the results of the experiment. A valid test keeps everything else the same except the single variable being tested. Here are some examples of variables you could test with Diggin’ Dirty Science:
- Test different ratios of Water Jelly Crystals to soil and determine which is the best for sprouting and growing a particular seed.
- Find out what temperature is best for sprouting a particular seed.
- Test different watering schedules using the same type of plant seed, temperature, water type, and Water Jelly Crystal to soil ratio.
Come up with your own variable to test and go claim that First Place prize!
