The ideas in this section provide suggestions to help you develop your own original science fair project. However, judges at such fairs do not reward projects or experiments that are simply copied from a book. For example, a model of a leaf or a flower, which is commonly found at these fairs, would probably not impress judges unless it was done in a novel way. On the other hand, a carefully performed experiment to find out how the removal of carbon dioxide from the air affects a plant growing under otherwise normal conditions would probably receive careful consideration.

In parallel venation the veins run lengthwise along the leaf and are parallel to one another (Figure 5d). Such venation is characteristic of corn, iris, wheat, and grasses. Netlike venation is commonly found in plants with seeds that have two cotyledons (dicots), while parallel venation is common among monocots (plants whose seeds have a single cotyledon). Look at the leaves you find on various plants. Draw the leaves and the vein patterns within the leaves. Which plants have leaves with parallel veins?

Which seeds germinate first? Which germinate last? Watch the seedlings after they have germinated. Do all the seedlings grow straight up? Can seeds that germinate in your “observatorium” be transplanted to soil and survive? FIGURE 2: With a setup like this you can watch seeds germinate as they would in soil. Does their orientation affect their germination? 2 What Factors Affect Germination? Materials: 4 wide, shallow trays paper towels water seeds (lima bean, navy bean, radish, corn, lentil, pea, and others) plastic wrap stick-on labels refrigerator warm room dark room or closet Germinating seeds reveal the emergence of life from something that was previously dormant and seemingly lifeless.
