The Science Workbook of Student Research Projects in Food - Agriculture - Natural Resources.
Darrow, Edward E., Ed.
This workbook provides descriptions of research projects for high school and middle school science teachers and students. The projects can be used as demonstrations in the laboratory or classroom to help teachers illustrate the practical application of basic science principles. They can also be used by students, under the guidance of the teachers, as starting points for independent projects to present at science fairs. The projects, which vary in level of difficulty to accommodate both the gifted and average students, are presented under these headings: animal nutrition; animal physiology and biochemistry; animal reproduction; aquatic sciences and fisheries; electricity; food science and food products; forest products; human nutrition; insects; plant breeding; plant diseases; plant nutrition; plant physiology and biochemistry; recycling; seed physiology; soil biology; soil chemistry and physics; soil classification and genesis; soil cultivation; and solar energy. Descriptions include background information, problem, materials, methods (procedures), references, and the name of the person who submitted the project. Also included are tips for obtaining reference materials, how to write for information (including samples of unacceptable/acceptable letters), guidelines for animal use, and a discussion on how to conduct a research project.
