Choosing a Project Around Photosynthesis & Cyanobacteria

Postby hhr16 » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:38 pm

Hello,

I'm going to be a 10th grader this year and I've signed up for an accelerated biology class. The class requires every student to participate in a science fair and by earlier August all students must have sent in their ideas of a science project. I'm completely clueless as what to choose for a project and I have no idea where to begin! All I know is that from 9th grade's Science, I want to do a project based on Cyanobacteria and Photosynthesis. I want to be able to understand the project and the vocabulary that comes with it. I feel absolutely clueless as to what sorts of experiments would be compatible with Cyanobacteria and Photosynthesis.

Thank you!

There is a lot of information about this subject at http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/bacteria/cyanolh.html. It includes a glossary and other related resources. This subject is very timely as it relates to how these processes can be used to manufacture food. Good luck with your project.
