Biodegradable Materials

Postby gflynn » Sat Feb 24, 2018 12:52 am

Hi i was thinking of doing something about how biodegradable different materials are. Although i don't really have any questions to relate the experiment to specifically, any ideas?
Also do you have any websites available for research into a logbook about biodegradable materials, landfill, composting or recycling to help with my assessment.

Hello Gflynn,
"Biodegradable" is certainly a "hot" topic. Part of the value of doing a science project is learning to use resources to research your ideas.

The Science Buddies "Science Fair Project Ideas" is a good place to start your research:

https://www.sciencebuddies.org/science- ... ject-ideas

https://www.sciencebuddies.org/search?v=pi

Type in terms like biodegradable or recycling or compost. Then look at the project write-ups which will have many references which you can read on the web.

Another good Science Buddies resources is the project guide. This will help you organize your ideas and come up with hypotheses and ideas for your experiments.

Let us know what you come up with and let us know if you have more questions.
