Glad to see you want to conduct a research experiment.
First, I would take a look at Science Buddies' own page on
possible project ideas.http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... a=PlantBio
Second, what excites you in the field of Botany? Are there questions that you have specifically? Something
that you want answers to?
Third, start researching. The more you read about the research and development in Botany, you may find
a specific area that may interest you. This can be as simple as a Google search, reading science news
or just searching up articles at pubmed.gov.
Fourth, ask questions. Having an inquisitive mind is very important in the field of science. Ask your
high school teacher if he or she has any suggestions.
Because you are close to the University of Oklahoma. I would suggest perhaps asking the Botany department
Their website is: http://www.ou.edu/cas/botany-micro/
Look at different professors and their research:http://www.ou.edu/cas/botany-micro/botany.shtml
You are in high school but don't be afraid of asking universities. I would also recommend
contacting grad students whose contact info are on that site.
It could be a possible way to get mentorship and get some questions answered!
Of course, you are more than welcome to come here for questions and we will
do our best to help you!
