HEy!! i need help on ideas for a science project also known as SRP (student research project). you just pretty much think of what experiments you're gonna do and achieve it through the holiday returning a full report (aim, hypothesis, variables, equipment, diagram, observation, table etc.) i can't think of any experiment that i can do. i only know one which is to test the speed of ice at different slope angles. if you know any please share THANKS ALL!!

...Using cabbage as a natural indicator - google it. Lots of pretty colours :)

Experiments with calculations also tend to be better as it shows far more involvement. Though to add to that, there's nothing wrong with your idea.

Yes, I remember my experiment to determine refractive index of ice didn't quite go to plan

Ask your teachers for ideas and ways to approach the assignment. I'm 100% sure that they'll be glad to assist you if they are good teachers.

Testing of pH of soil on the growth of plants. I did that for my SRP and came second in the grade.

Also, quantity makes quality!
I was never a bright science student, especially in Years 8 and 9, and I still managed to get a 61/63 for it (lost 2 marks for not having enough accuracy) but I worked really hard for that mark. I think I did a 4000 word report and a 3500 word logbook from memory :/ (went heaps overboard) like 7000+ words in total :/

Depends on the teacher :p
My teacher allowed me to write as much as I liked...
I should say Quantity CAN make Quality!
To be on the safe side, check if there's a word limit with your teacher or the marker! If not, go hard out! (Your SRP is like 40% to 60% of your half yearly report!)

Testing the effectiveness of different stain removers. Get Coles brand, Preen, Sard, Eco-friendly brand, test them on some random stains. Easy. Results were interesting..

To investigate what condition other than the refrigerator [Indoor, Outdoor, Indoor in water, Outdoor in water] best suits the storage of citric and non-citric fruits in the summer season. I got full marks for mine, but it was a long process...

i think im gonna do how surface tension of water can be effected by temperature
or maybe salinity
i thought of doing salinity first but there is little research that i can find :(
might aswell do temperature

Hi Asdfqwerty,
Would you consider sending me your SRP so i can review it to see the structure etc. I have recently been unwell, and i am confused about the whole task. It would be greatly appreciated :)

Kind regards, HOTBABE101
