Bean Project

  • Problem-Which bean would grow the faster with Powerade or water    

  • Background Knowledge-Plants need oxygen and water to grow  

  • Hypothesis-I think the bean with Powerade will grow faster then water 

  • Measure beans, and make sure they have the same mass
    Take your beans and wrap it in the paper towel
    Get two,two oz cups and fill them with dirt t the rim of the cup
    Take the wrapped beans and put them both in the cup the tip of your pinky length
    Pour 10 mL of water and pour 10 mL of powerade  in the other cup

  • Method-

  • Step 1: Get safety equipment and materialsStep 2: Measure beans on a scale and make sure they are the same mass
    Step 3: Get two, two oz cups and fill them with dirt half  way
    Step 4: Put the beans in the cup a pinky length
    Step 5: Pour 15 mL of water in one cup and pour 15 mL of powerade
    Step 6: get a piece of paper with the day of the week on it and record the results
    Step 7: do step one, step seven, and step eight
