How Do Different Cations and pH Affect Bean Growth For grades 4 thru 8
Category: Botany
Hypothesis: The higher the pH, the poorer the beans would grow, therefore the beans would grow worst in the sodium solution and best in the calcium solution.
Primary Materials Used: Pinto and Great Northern Beans, 4-Quart Plastic Tubs, PVC Pipe, Plastic Needlepoint Cloth, Distilled Water, Sprayer, Sodium Hydroxide, Potassium Hydroxide, Calcium Hydroxide, pH Paper, Disposable Gloves, Aquarium Gravel, Scale

Musical Rat Mazes For grades 4 thru 8
Category: Zoology
Hypothesis: Rats will learn a maze the best with no music.
Primary Materials Used: Rats, Three Different Mazes, Three Types of Music, Stopwatch, CD Player, Jelly Bread

SPLAT! Forming Craters and Predicting Their Size For grades 3 thru 7
Category: Space and Astronomy
Hypothesis: The size of a crater formed by an object's impact will be greater when the object is bigger and faster. The size of the crater will be predictable after enough data is collected.
Primary Materials Used: Plaster of Paris, Cake Pans, Ladders, Clamps, Kite String, Triple Beam Balance, Wood, Tape Measure
