    Tiff for the homework ultraviolet (light my way) i have the questions but not the readings so my answers might be the same as someone else in block one so i am going to share a packet with someone else

    Tiff, if our project is only slightly explosive, (like say water boiling violently in an instant) has extreme parental supervision, I don’t bring the experiment in and we are a distance away when it boils, can we do the experiment?

      bring in the exp. plan/ procedure…i’m assuming you found this online. attach it to your topics. but come up with other ideas just in case.

      • spencer says:

        I gave up on it, it sounded cool but I couldn’t think of what to test with it. I like the tropism test much better.

    • tifftai says:

      on what? the science fair topics? Yes, BUT it will be due on Wed. which means you will have both hw#11 and the science fair topics due then. just plan ahead!

    hey tiff, im doing my project with plant seedlings. what type of plant do you think i should use, and do know where i would be able to get them?

    • tifftai says:

      anything will work! beans grow quickly but they’ll need a little stick to support them. look for something healthy looking and affordable. you can go to any nursery or home depot.
