Abstract

This poster is part of the WATERS project funded by the NSF GK-12 program. Students were challenged to work in groups of two to independently investigate a question by following the scientific method. The first project investigated the impact of water temperature on the depletion of red marker ink. They found that higher water temperature tended to produce more ink. However, over long periods of time there was not much difference in ink production. The second project investigated the impact of different amounts of lipids on the quality of popcorn produced. They quantified the number of corn kernels and looked at burning.
