Hi Nissan,

This is a great topic for a science project. There are several vitamin projects on the Science Buddies website, but I can't find one called "which multivitamin is best."

Here's one on measuring vitamin C:

Here's one on dissolution of pills that could be done with multivitamins:

And, here's one on measuring iron in breakfast cereal:

I would be happy to help with your request, but please do confirm which project you son is interested in.

Thank you for the reply. The dissolution of the pills is what he wants to do. Mainly he wants to try different childrens multivitamnins.Any resources on that?
The one of science buddies does not have much info.

Hi,

The bibliography in the background section of this project idea includes a detailed, material and methods section and a step-by-step protocol that you can use to adapt to your project. The photograph of the board suggests how to display the results, which will be unique to your project.

Let me know if you still need more help.
