Science Fair Connection
Think about some variables like these that you might test:
- Try altering the type of liquid you use. Make sure you keep all other variables the same, including the quantity of water gel. Then compare the gel forms that are created. Are they the same? Different?
- Try using different temperatures of water. Time the reactions or compare the gel forms that are created.
These are just a couple of ideas, but you aren’t limited to them! Come up with different ideas of variables to test and give them a try. Remember, you can only change one variable at a time for each test. For example, if you are testing different water temperatures, make sure that all other factors in the test remain the same!
