Aloe Vera Strawberry project

Postby Sciencegirl7112 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 8:56 pm

Do we need to use 12 groups of 6 strawberries or 12 groups of 4 strawberries?

Hi Sciencegirl-

If you're working on http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p033.shtml, that procedure calls for each trial to use one group of 12 washed in water and a second group of 12 washed in aloe vera juice. You need 24 then for a trial. You want to do three trials (at least), so you'd need 24*3 or 72 strawberries, divided into 6 groups of 12.
