Summer project, about 60 hrs????

Postby har0bed1813 » Sat Jun 11, 2005 3:11 pm

heey... anyone know of some project thingy I could do (alone) in a sort of nature thingy near a river that will take about 60 hours and you can do without a microscope? (with plants obviously, since it is posted in this section)

The only thing that comes to my mind is to analize different species of plant and compare their growth rates. Kinda give a new meaning to the expresion: "Stand around and watch plants grow" :D
There are not many experiments that you can do in nature. You generally need a lab

Lol... that would be a nice experiment but it would take many scientists to finish it

The scientist observes which people die after eating which plants? Makes sense...
