Difficulties in my project

Postby timo09058 » Fri Sep 07, 2012 8:20 pm

My project is about The potential of musa sp( Banana Peels) as an extractor of heavy metal in waste water treatment. This project will be present in Young Scientist Competition. The problem is that the project is mainly on biochemistry but I am taking part in biology field. The experiment I am carried out on the project were using chemistry method. How am I going to separate this project to biology field?

Congratulations on your bright idea for the science project. As far as my understanding you can enter any project video for young scientist competition as long as your idea is new and is going to be beneficial to the community. Both Biology and Chemistry are interdependent in Science experiment and if you use Chemistry for your analysis of your project you should still be able to enter the contest under Biology. You can also check out this website for Young Scientist Challenge student rules for 2012. The key is to show and explain the scientific process of your experiment.

Good Luck,
