    Topic: Run & Jump
    Problem: Will running before the jump make you jump far?
    Hypothesis: if the subjects run before they jump, then they will jump a greater distance.
    Independent Variable: Running Distance
    Dependent Variable: Jumping Distance
    Constants: The Size of the pit
    Control Set-Up: The jumping distance without running.
    Connection with Society: In the Olympics people use momentum from running & get a farther distance than the competition so when you want to get a further distance than the competition you should run before you jump.
    Procedure (LISTED): 1 the experiment will need a jumping pit.
    2: Next measure out different running distances on the track & mark them off
    3: The subjects will jump without any momentum / running & mark it off & measure the distance
    4: Then subjects would run then jump the pit twice to see if they jump greater in one than the other
    5: We would see how did running affect distance my jumping distance?

    6: The subjects will both wearing shorts, and short sleeves but one running with jordans, and another wearing nikes boy or girl.

    7: The subjects would also evaluate if what they are wearing affects the jumping distance
    Vocabulary words: Momentum, speed, distance, trajectory, gravity

    Key Question 1: How does gravity impact the body while jumping?
    Key Question 2: How does weight jumping distance?
    Key Question 3: Why do track athletes run before they jump?
    Key Question 4: Does jumping higher cause the jump to be longer?

    Introduction: My project is about jumping and what will be affecting the jump.
    The most important things to think about in the long jump are your approach, your takeoff, your flight, and your landing. A strong approach will lead to a better takeoff you are going to need a good technique which will get you a better flight and a longer jump.

    Paragraph 1:
    Propelling your body into the air becomes more challenging as weight increases. It is more difficult for a person that weights more to jump the same distance as a lighter person because of your mass. A heavier person would be moving more mass against the force of gravity.

    Paragraph 2:
    Track athletes would run to get a good distance. They would also need a strong takeoff & landing. When they do run they gain the momentum for a better takeoff .

    Topic: Do male and females play the same video games?
    Problem: Do males and females enjoy the same video games?
    Independent Variable: Gender (male and female)
    Dependent Variable: Level of interest in activities!
    Hypothesis: If male and females are BOTH surveyed, then the results
    will show if males and females play the same video games.
    Control Set Up: None.
    Connection with society: New similarities between male and females!
    Procedure: Step1: Give survey idea to Mrs. Silverstien.
    Step2: If approved, survey 4th lunch period.
    Step3: With approval from my other teachers, I could survey students in my other class periods.
    Step4: Analyze and submit results.
    Key Question1: Do males and females have the same interests?
    Key Question2: Do males and females play the same video games?
    Key Question3: Which video games are geared specifically towards males? Females? Are there any that are geared towards both?
    Key Question4: Are different strategies used to market games or other media to males than females?
    1. Introduction Paragraph:
    “Do Males and Females play the same Video Games?” That’s the question. This topic has great relevance to society and gamers. Gamers from opposite genders could relate through video games. One fact is that Ivan Sutherland’s 1960 “Sketchpad” system gave video games its jump to the top of the charts!(One)
    This would be the start to many famous gaming franchises, such as “Call of Duty” or “Halo” which are both famous franchises for Xbox 360. “The “Sketchpad” also contributed to the evolution of gaming graphics.(The)
    This is the start of an in-depth look on “Do Males and Females Play the Same Video Games?”

    Key Question#1:
    The first question is “Do males and females have the same interests?” Over the years, the gaming industry has expanded to try and get more females to purchase more video games that are more for girls. “Video games such as Super Mario Bros or Sonic have found a stable place in children’s playrooms.”(Video) These types of video games appeal to boys because of their interests in fighting and adventure games. “Only recently has so called ‘pink software’ established a playground for girls promoting games such as Barbie’s Fashion Designer, or The Babysitter’s Club.” This may appeal more to girls due to the fact that it brings out their feminine side. This proves that males and females do NOT have the same interests.

    Key Question#2:
    This question is…”Do Males and Females Play the Same Video Games?”
    “As expected, women tend to avoid violent games. They prefer to solve puzzles, test their dexterity Nintendo’s Wii system is popular, help their comrades put dragons in their place, and heal their fallen friends.”(As) This could mean that females play intellectual and role-playing games.
    “Studies showed that boys liked aggressive games more than girls did, so game makers took that difference into consideration.”(Studies) Now, this could’ve been the start of major aggressive games, such as the ‘Call of Duty’ franchise and others. Males and females do not play the same video games.

    Topic: FOAM it up!!!
    Problem: Does the amount of Hydrogen Peroxide impact foam formation?
    Hypothesis: If more hydrogen Peroxide is added, then it will take less time for the reaction to occur.
    Independent Variable: How much Hydrogen Peroxide (measured in mL)
    Dependent Variable: “Explosion Time (seconds)”
    Constants: Same amount of soap, yeast, food coloring and the same room temperature.
    Control Set-Up: 3/4 mL of hydrogen and a more fluid tube.
    Connection with Society: Hydrogen (H2) combines explosively with oxygen (O2) to form water (H2O). The reaction is exothermic, in other words it releases energy. Hydrogen and oxygen have therefore been used as rocket fuel for decades, not because of a benefit to the environment but because the full weight of the fuel is ignited.
    Procedure (LISTED): Hydrogen (H2) combines explosively with oxygen (O2) to form water (H2O). The reaction is exothermic, in other words it releases energy.

    Vocabulary words: Hydrogen (H2), Peroxide, Yeast, Food Coloring, Oxygen (O2), Exothermic & Water (H2O).
    Key Question 1: What is hydrogen? What is the difference between hydrogen and hydrogen peroxide?
    Key Question 2: How does hydrogen fuel stars?
    Key Question 3: How is foam created from a reaction?
    Key Question 4: Does changing the amount of hydrogen change the reaction time?
    Introduction:
    This research essay is on hydrogen affects. The problem for this project is “Does the amount of hydrogen effect the time of explosion.” The first element in the periodic table is Hydrogen (H2). The element has no color or smell to it. Hydrogen is formed with electrons and neutrons. Sometimes, the hydrogen atom is basically used for its gas. This is pretty much the main stuff about the element. This basically is stating the element Hydrogen. It also states the power that this element has and its use of its power.

    Topic: Video and Computer Games
    Problem: Do different body postures affect your gaming score?
    Hypothesis: If you are in a calm body posture then you will get the highest gaming score
    Independent Variable: Posture
    Dependent Variable: Game Score
    Constants: Two people will be playing the same game which will be Pac Man, Both players will be starting at level 1 and keep working their way up, The lighting in the room will be what a regular room would be like with 3 light bulbs, Both players will be a male, Both players will be sitting in a computer chair
    Control Set-Up: One player will be in “Posture 1” which will be a normal body posture being relaxed not worried about anything else, Another player will be in “Posture 2” which will be in a rushed mode for example when your parents say we are leaving but you want to finish the game quickly so your rushing, Both players will be playing for 2 minutes starting a level 1, After 5 rounds of going back and forth I will add up both players score and compare them to see who wins and has the highest score
    Connection with Society: This will help society by knowing what “Body Posture” to use even if you have little time to play a game and get the highest gaming score
    Procedure (LISTED): 1: Set up the game (Tetris) with two computers and 2 computers chairs 2: Let player one play for 2 minutes and then let him off< Put player two onto the other computer for 2 minutes 3: After the 5 rounds record the score of both players by adding there scores up 4: Whoever has the highest gaming score will win
    Vocabulary words: Posture, attention, mindset, thinking, focused,
    Key Question 1: What kind of postures are there? Key Question 2: What parts of the body are impacted by posture? Key Question 3: How does posture alter focus? Key Question 4: What is the best posture for working at a computer?
    Introduction: The research topic is about Video and Computer Games. The problem is “Do different body postures affect your gaming score?”This will help society by knowing what “Body Posture” to use even if you have little time to play a game and get the highest gaming score. Facts about this subject are about a comfortable body posture. To have a comfortable body posture your hands, wrists and forearms must be parallel to the floor to have a comfortable body posture. To also have a comfortable body posture your shoulders and upper arms should be relaxed. Your head should be level with your torso. These steps will help you have a comfortable body posture the next time you’re playing on the computer.

    Number 1: What kind of postures are there?
    There are many different types of postures. Some different types of postures are upright sitting postures, declined sitting posture, and reclined sitting posture. The upright sitting posture is when the user’s torso and neck are vertical to each other. The thighs are horizontal and the lower legs are vertical. The declined sitting posture is when the torso is slightly reclined and the legs are vertical. The reclined sitting posture is when the user’s torso and neck are straight and reclined up to 120 degrees from the thighs (OSHA). These are the different type of postures that there are.

    Number 2: What parts of the body are affected by posture?
    Some postures can affect the body in negative ways. One way posture affects your body is when your neck is tilted back to far. This will cause weariness in the neck and shoulder muscles. Another way posture affects the body is when you are in an awkward posture you irritate bone tendon muscle conditions (OSHA). These ways can affect the body posture in negative ways.

    Topic: Do humans use their visual memory (eyesight)or auditory memory (hearing).

    Problem: Do the eyes have it?
    Hypothesis: It is though that humans use their eyesight more because humans use their eyesight even when they are not listening to something.
    Independent Variable: Sound and sight
    Dependent Variable: How much the testers remember
    Constants: The amount of numbers in each test that people will see in the seeing section and the hear the hearing section, the age of the participants, noise in the testing environment, and all the numbers will be from 10 through 99
    Connection with Society: the point of this is to see if humans use their visual or auditory memory more, so maybe this can connect to what kinds of memory should you think about using more
    Procedure (LISTED):
    1. First, make three lists of ten numbers between 10 and 99. Use the same amount of single digit numbers on each list. The first list will be used for trial 1, the second for trial 2, and the third for trial 3.

    -Problem: What surface material makes a ball bounce highest?
    -Hypothesis: If the ball is bounced on a wood floor then it will be the highest
    -Independent Variable: Surface Material
    -Dependent Variable: Height of Bounce
    -Constants are good, also include the air pressure in the ball (you’ll have to check it regularly), the temperature of the area, etc.
    -Control set up would be the gym floor as a surface since that’s where ball are usually bounced
    -Conncetion with society is not the type of ball, it’s the type of surface – you’re going to determine which surface is better for playing sports based on where the ball bounces best.

    1. Determine at least four locations with different surfaces (gym floor, etc)
    2. Go to location one and set up video camera on the floor to record and a meter stick against the wall.
    3. Drop the ball from 1 meter, and let the camera record the height of the bounce.
    4. Repeat step 3 four more times.
    5. Watch the video tape and pause it at the point where the ball bounces the highest. Record that level according to the meter stick.
    6. Repeat steps 2-5 in all four locations.

    Procedure:
    1. Purchase supplies including a thermometer and the following cups: __________, ____________, ____________
    2. Heat water until it reaches boiling point.
    3. Fill cups with boiling water.
    4. Cover cups with the included lids.
    5. Read and record the temperature of the water within the cups every five minutes.
    6. Repeat steps 2-5 four more times

    vocab: thermos, insulated,heat,device,vaccum flask,silicon, absorption, boiling point, insulation, specific heat

    Key Question1: How is insulation used in society?
    Key Question2: What materials are good insulators?
    Key Question3: Why do different materials take longer to cool down?
    Key Question4: How do thermos’ keep substances warm?

    Intro Paragraph

    This project is about different types of insulated containers and which ones keep liquid the hottest. One way this project relates to society is that it informs consumers what the best type of insulated cup to get is. A fact about this is that insulated cups keeps food hot in a vacuum container. In 1892 Sir James Dewar developed an idea to store liquid gases at low temperatures and prevent them from being affected by external temperatures. This proved to be so effective that it was used in scientific works. Later the Dewar Flask, the first thermal insulated vessel was developed.
    “Since the mid-19th century, miners, factory workers, dock hands, and other laborers have used sturdy dinner pails to hold hard-boiled eggs, vegetables, meat, coffee, pie, and other hardy fare. In 1904, “thermos” vacuum bottles began keeping workers’ drinks hot or cold until the noon whistle blew”.

    People still bring Thermos with them to work, on business trips, and even just a day outside. People still use thermos’ and varying types of insulated containers such as styrofoam to keep things hot or cold.
    For many years scientists have been studying temperature changes. For example “Newton’s Law of Cooling” is used to model the temperature change of an object of some temperature placed in an environment of a different temperature”.
    “Thermal Conductivity is when heat transfer by conduction involves transfer of energy within a material without any motion of the material as a whole. The rate of heat transfer depends upon the temperature gradient and the thermal conductivity of the material.” Temperature change depends upon what materials are being used and the change in the external temperature.

    Key Question 1:
    The first Key Question is how is insulation used in society? Insulation is used in society in many ways. One way is that insulation is used in homes to keep in the heat during winter and the cool air during summer. Another way insulation is used in society is that insulation properties are used to make blankets. that is how insulation is used in society.

    Key Question 2:
    The second key question is what materials are good insulators. There are many good materialsfor insulators. Some good materials that are used are fiberglass, rocks, and mineral wool. Other good materials are slag wool, plastic fiber, and straw. Those are good insulation materials.

    sorry here are my 2 paragraphs Key Question 2: How does air pressure impact human life?
    Feeling pressured? Don’t worry, so too is everyone else across the globe. It’s a fact. Each day, every day, all day, Earthlings wake up under pressure. What’s more, for most of us, it’s inescapable–even when we sleep. Of course, most of us wouldn’t want it any other way, because without this kind of pressure–air pressure, that is–life, as we now enjoy it, simply wouldn’t exist. So by what it seems is that air pressure is part of life and without it life would be totally different. Also there wouldn’t be a sun because that’s all a battle of pressure.
    O'Meara, Stephen James. “The powers of pressure.” Odyssey Nov. 2003: 6+. Gale Student Resources In Context. Web. 19 Oct. 2012.
    Key Question 1: What is air pressure? What are the units air pressure is measured in?
    well air pressure is what weighs us done besides gravity. Also its measured in normal weight so like everything else. Also it can be found at the bottom of the ocean deep done really deep no human can dive that deep (about200,000ft) there goggles would basically go through their head and would kill you.

    Independent Variable: The temperature
    Dependent Variable: The size of the crystals
    Constants: borax water container crystals are grown in
    Control Set-Up: How big the crystals will be
    Connection with Society: Some people like crystals so this will catch their attention
    Procedure (LISTED):in1Mix the water and borax in the cup for both the room temperature and fridge crystals
    2Put the pencil and the string in the room temperature crystal and the fridge crystal
    3Put the room temperature crystal in room temperature and the fridge crystals in the fridge
    4Record results

    Key Question 1: How does temperature affect crystal growth?
    Key Question 2: What is the difference between intrusive and extrusive rocks?
    Key Question 3: What textures are associated with intrusive igneous rocks? What textures are associated with extrusive igneous rocks?
    Key Question 4: How do the ingredients make crystals grow?

    Intro This project is about at which temperature crystals grow the largest. At various temperatures crystals grow differently. Crystals grow faster in cold temperatures but they are weaker and fragile. The crystals in cold temperatures grow faster are fragile and weaker because it cools of more fast. Crystals grown at room temperatures grow slower but are stronger. The crystals in room temperature grow slowly and are stronger because it has more time to grow while it is cooling. This information was given from
    Paragraph 1: Crystals are formed chemically when water mixes with borax. After they are mixed some solid molecules bump into each other and form a crystal. Then they get stuck on the string put in the water.
    Paragraph 2: The crystals slowly grow on the string. If a crystal cools to fast It will take impurities and get messed up. If the crystal cools at a good rate then it will not take the impurities.

    Hypothesis: If more hydrogen Peroxide is added, then it will take less time for the reaction to occur.
    Independent Variable: How much Hydrogen Peroxide (measured in mL)
    Dependent Variable: “Explosion Time (seconds)”
    Constants: Same amount of soap, yeast, food coloring and the same room temperature.
    Control Set-Up: 3/4 mL of hydrogen and a more fluid tube.
    Connection with Society: Hydrogen (H2) combines explosively with oxygen (O2) to form water (H2O). The reaction is exothermic, in other words it releases energy. Hydrogen and oxygen have therefore been used as rocket fuel for decades, not because of a benefit to the environment but because the full weight of the fuel is ignited.

    Vocabulary words: Hydrogen (H2), Peroxide, Yeast, Food Coloring, Oxygen (O2), Exothermic & Water (H2O).
    Key Question 1: What is hydrogen? What is the difference between hydrogen and hydrogen peroxide?
    Key Question 2: How does hydrogen fuel stars?
    Key Question 3: How does Hydrogen create an H-Bomb?
    Key Question 4: Does changing the amount of hydrogen change the reaction time?
    Introduction:
    This research essay is on hydrogen affects. The problem for this project is “Does the amount of hydrogen effect the time of explosion.” The first element in the periodic table is Hydrogen (H2). The element has no color or smell to it. Hydrogen is formed with electrons and neutrons. Sometimes, the hydrogen atom is basically used for its gas. This is pretty much the main stuff about the element. This basically is stating the element Hydrogen. It also states the power that this element has and its use of its power.
    “Hydrogen – H.” Hydrogen (H). N.p., n.d. Web. 18 Oct. 2012. .
    Paragraph 1:
    Hydrogen is an element in the periodic table. A periodic table is a table of elements. The element (H2) atomic number is “1” and has a mass of “1.01”. This element is a compound made up of atoms. If you mix Hydrogen (H2) & Oxygen (O), then you will get Water [H2O (2)]. Hydrogen is used for gas sometimes. Mixed with peroxide (Hydrogen Peroxide) it may be used for cuts and scratches to make the cut not get infected.
    Paragraph 2:iThere are two sections of a star. The core and an outer gaseous shell. The core is were most of the fusion starts. The core is the center of the star and the outer gaseous shell is the outer layer. It is very hot. The outer shell is made Hydrogen and helium gas. This cools down the core of the star to the surface of the star where the light and heat is released into space and then reaches the earth. on

    Introduction: For my project I will be testing which brand of potato chips is the greasiest. This relates to society because potato chips have been a family favorite for decades and so it’s good for them to know which brand is the healthiest!  The chips I will be using for my project will be Lays, Utz, Pop Chips, and Pringles. And all of them contain different amounts of grease and oils.
    To begin with, there are many ways to make potato chips. For instance, you can pop them, bake them, fry them, you can even microwave them! Unfortunately, some ways of making potato chips are not as healthy as the others. But no matter which way you make them; do they still require oil to be made?

    Topic:Electromagnets

    Problem:Does the thickness or length of the nail affect the electromagnets strength?

    Hypothesis:If the nail is bigger, it will have more of a magnetic attraction

    Independent Variable:: Nail Size (measured in inches)

    Dependent Variable:Strength (measure in paperclips picked up)

    Constants:The nail is made of iron

    Control Set-Up:3in. nail

    Connection with Society:It relates to society because in society they use strong magnetic forces in junkyards to pick up old cars so they can put it in the crushers.

    Procedure (LISTED):#1- Cut the wire leaving a few inches of wire at each end.
    #2- Tape down the end of the wire from the top of the nail to the negative pole of the battery. Make sure the wire is touching the battery end
    #3- Open the knife switch and connect the wire from the bottom end of the nail to the terminal on the knife switch.
    #4- Cut another short piece of wire and tape the wire to the positive pole of the battery.
    #5- Connect the wire from the battery to other terminals on the knife switch.
    #6- Close the circuit by closing the knife switch. With that, it create a circuit of electricity that passes through the wire round around the nail.
    #7- Touch the point of the nail to a couple of paper clips and watch what happens.

    Vocabulary words: ferromagnetic, magnetic field, permanent magnets, flux density, electric current, volt, magnetic force

    Key Question 1:What does a ferromagnetic do?

    Key Question 2:Is there a maximum amount of electricity that can be held in the nail?

    Key Question 3:How far can you put the electromagnet and still make it attract a metal object

    Key Question 4:Is there a formula to measure the magnetic strength of objects? Is there a connection between the size of the magnet and the strength?

    Introduction: Electromagnets have many interesting facts and is a fun project with it too.”An electromagnet is a device that converts the flow of an electric current into a magnetic field”.Another thing about electromagnets is that in this experiment it can be turned on or off .On refridgerators in a common home has something called a permanent magnet, which will always have a magnetic force around it and cannot be turned off or disabled. This project relates to society because in junkyards they use electromagnets to pick up old cars so they can put them into the crushers which works because the magnetic force attracts the cars metal which will make it stick onto the giant electromagnet or even at home .The refrigerator has an electromagnet to stay closed so that it doesn’t let the cold air out.

    Paragraph 1: A ferromagnet is a characteristic of substances such as iron, nickel, or cobalt and other alloys that have extremely high magnetic forces.2 materials that are found in nature are loadstone and iron which can attract things and some people call these 2 substances ferromagnets of nature. They were found about 2000 years ago and mostly all scientists studied on those 2 materials. It also works on gadolinium and more. If you heat the ferromagnet to a certain temperature which is called the curie temperature where it will not have the magnetic effect it had before. “One requirement of a ferromagnetic material is that its atoms or ions have permanent magnetic moments. The magnetic moment of an atom comes from its electrons, since the nuclear contribution is negligible.”

    Paragraph 2: If the nail on the electromagnet gets too hot or the battery that powers the nail gets too hot, then you have to take off the wire because the battery can blow out. The maximum amount of electricity that can be held in the nail depends on the size of the nail. The amount of volts that you put into the nail makes the magnetic force of the nail stronger for example if the amount of volts are 5 and the nail that is 3 inches had a magnetic force of 2 and you raised the voltage by 3 the magnetic force would go up by 3 to.

    1. Final Proposal – Revision
    Nicholas Chen
    Nicholaschen2012
    How Color Affects Our Moods & Choices
    How will different colors affect our moods and choices?
    Independent Variable: Color
    Dependent Variable: The mood/choices
    Constants: The survey questions, the student body.
    Hypothesis: Mine: If certain colors are presented to the student body, then they will respond with relevant reactions./ Mrs. Silverstein’s: If different colors are presented to the students, then the students will make the different decisions.
    Control: Unfortunately, there is no control, as this is a survey.
    How this project relates to society: There are some practical uses of color in business and psychology. Ex: Blue = Trust. Place blue on a business card and you may have more trusting customers.
    Proposal:
    Prep: Create and present two surveys to Mrs. Silvertein.
    Step One: Print X (25) copies of the first survey.
    Step Two: Recruit people to survey the other three lunch periods, as I am in the 5th lunch period.
    Step Three: Survey the lunch periods.
    Step Four: Analyze the data and make a conclusion.
    Step Five: Print out 25 copies of the second survey in each color.
    Step Eight: See if the color paper affected their reactions to it. Ex: Red= negative, Blue= no effect, Yellow= positive.
    Step Nine: Analyze the new data and make a conclusion.
    Step Ten: Create a Powerpoint Presentation.
    Vocabulary Words: Psychology, Emotion, Hue, Chromaticity, Saturation, Value, Complementary Colors, Primary Colors, Tints, Tones and Shades
    Key Question 1: What effects do colors have on our subconscious?
    Key Question 2: Why does color affect our subconscious?
    Key Question 3: Which color would be the best to use in various marketing schemes?
    Key Question 4: How have people used color psychology, even today?

    Imagine a snazzy red border on a webpage, with a bright orange background. How does this make you feel? Most people would likely say excited. Colors have an impact on our minds subconsciously, and oftentimes they can affect our moods and choices. This is shown in the color blue, which means trust in one’s subconscious. (Wright) Using this information, green (money) and blue might be a good combo when dealing with others money. However, the wrong color scheme can turn potential customers as fast as a good one can draw them. For example, what you would want to use are complementary colors or colors directly opposite to each other on the color wheel, for example, blue and orange. (Precision Intermedia) This can even be seen in the Mets’ logo. Another color scheme is the monochromatic color scheme. It is the use of a color in various shades, or colors that have black added to them making them a darker color. (Precision Intermedia) A forest painting might utilize a monochromatic color scheme, using different shades of green.
    The current paragraph lists the affects of the most common colors. BLUE represents serenity, intelligence, and trust. This would likely be good in an ad for an investing company. RED means strength, masculinity, and excitement. (Wright) This could be good for a gym. YELLOW represents emotion(al), confidence, creativity, friendliness, and fear. (Wright) This would be well used in a child’s daycare center. (Wright) BLACK means oppression. (Wright) In many games and media, the antagonist is dressed in black, or has a physical quality that is colored black. WHITE means sterility. It means purity, and is even used in the American flag. (Wright) GREEN means harmony. (Wright) Eco-friendly organizations, or even companies just trying to be eco-friendly to attract more business, can use this color. (Wright) VIOLET is a color representing spiritual aspects. (Wright) Many psychics use this color in their ads. ORANGE represents fun, abundance, food, security, and physical comfort. (Wright) Ironically, while orange means abundance and fun, it also means deprivation and frustration. PINK soothes, also representing the female portion of the species, and also the survival of the entire species. (Wright) GREY has the benefit of not having a (or, at least, very few) psychological effects. (Wright) This could be used as a wall color for a room containing control subjects within experiments. Last of all, BROWN can mean Nature, reliability, support, and seriousness. (Wright) This, with blue, could be a good color for a law firm. These common colors have a strong impact on our minds.
    Colors affect our minds for many different reasons. RED increases our attention by looking heavy. It also increases our heartbeat and breathing. (Infoplease) Peaceful BLUE causes the body to produce calming chemicals, which is why a scene of the ocean, unless it is an image of a stormy sea, often is very tranquil. (Infoplease) PINK also soothes the human mind. Sport teams paint their guest locker rooms pink to make them lose adrenaline. WHITE means sterility, as it is hard to keep white clean. Doctors wear white to express this trait. (Infoplease) GREEN is the easiest color to be seen by the eye, (as you see with your three cones, red, yellow, and green, which may explain the three traffic light colors,) as a result, green is a very calming color, yet it is also a “refreshing “ color. (Infoplease) YELLOW is a difficult color for your mind to process, and, as a result, it may induce negative emotions. Due to the color being of this nature to your eyes, it also draws attention. (Infoplease) PURPLE can be seen as artificial, as there are few things in nature that is this color. (Infoplease) BROWN represents genuineness, the opposite of purple, and is frequent in nature, therefore it is easy to see why it conveys the opposite message of purple. Color psychology may stretch back to primitive times, as when blue, black, or purple is seen on a edible item, it usually indicates mold, or another growth. However, green, brown and red are common/popular colors, as they are prominent in nature as edible foodstuffs. (Infoplease)*****

    *****-While the information is from Infoplease, the conclusion that color psychology comes from primitive times is my own inference and conclusion.

    INTRODUCTION

    This research topic is on how fast a specific search engine is. The topic is very good for society. This project relates to society in a very big way. Most people if not all (especially kids) know how to use the internet. People would benefit from this because if they need to get something up on the computer on the internet they would do it very quickly. Many students will benefit from this project because if they need to figure something out or just go on let’s say “Edmodo” for homework or something they would get on and off in a flash. Median download speed was 5 megabits per second in 2007 (Japan). Search engines consist of three things. The first is a computer program called a robot, or a spider. This program gathers information form websites and other sources on the search engine you are on. They get the hyperlinks that are attached to documents (Search). The search engines would not work without a spider or a robot.

    Questions.

    Question: 1 how does society use search engines?

    Society uses search engines in many different ways. One way in which society uses search engines is to do research on a certain something. People look for websites with the correct and in depth answer to there questions.
    Others use them to do online shopping. People might use specific search engines for shopping like “eBay”, “Amazon” and “Overstock”. The last reason is for entertainment purposes. Society looks up a plethora of entertainment base sites such as “Youtube”, “Facebook”, and gaming-websites (why)

    “Why People Use Search Engines: Research, Shopping, and Entertainment.” – For Dummies. N.p., n.d. Web. 17 Oct. 2012. .

    Question: 2 which search engine is the fastest?

    There are so many search engines in our world today. Here are a few “Google”, “Bing”, and “Yahoo”. The fastest search engine according to
    voices.yahoo.com/the-top-8-fastest-search-engines-8977911.html?cat=15 is “DuckDuckGo”. This search engine is very unique. If you scroll down the page it keeps on going eliminating the need to click on a new page and waiting for it to buffer. The top 30 results shown after a search are relevant to your question. They are also from reliable sites. I would give this search engine five out of five stars, it also has very little to no ads.(crowder)

    Title: How Do Clouds Form?
    Problem: How does atmospheric conditions impact cloud formation?
    Independent Variable: Temperature (Part 1) and Humidity (Part 2)
    Dependent Variable: Cloud formation
    Constants: The cloud chamber will stay the same.
    Hypothesis: If temperature is increased, then the size of the cloud will decrease and eventually disappear. However, if humidity is increased the cloud will increase in size.
    Control Set-Up: place the cloud chamber in room temperature and see what happens.
    How this problem relates to society: This project relates to society because it helps us predict the weather and is helpful for meteorologists to tell if it going to be a sunny, cloudy, or rainy day.
    Procedures:
    1st Step: Collect supplies: big pickle jar, gloves, a pot of hot water, a jar of ice, and a camera.
    2nd Step: Cover bottom of jar with water. Put on pair of gloves with fingers pointing to the water. Insert hand inside the jar with the open end of the glove on the seal. Pull hand out without disturbing the seal. Take out glove from the jar and put a lit match inside and replace the glove. Take out the glove and fog will start to form and then you have a cloud.
    3rd Step: When the cloud is formed, increase and decrease the temperature of the cloud chamber. To increase the temperature, place the cloud chamber in a hot pot of water and to decrease the temperature place the cloud chamber in a jar of ice.
    4th Step: To increase the humidity of the cloud chamber, add more water to the jar and to decrease the humidity add less water to the jar.
    5th: Take pictures during each trial to back up observation.
    Vocabulary words: Temperature, humidity, moisture, cloud formation, atmosphere, condensation, and condensation nuclei
    Key Question 1: How do clouds form?
    Key Question 2: Why are there different types of clouds?
    Key Question 3: How does temperature effect cloud formation?
    Key Question 4: How does humidity effect cloud formation?
    Introduction:
    This science project is about cloud formation. In this project you will learn how clouds are formed. This experiment will explain the process very well. This project relates to society because it explains how clouds affect our climate. It also discusses how the shapes of different clouds are formed. It will be easy to predict the weather after understanding this project. Especially meteorologists find this information very helpful. It is a fact that to make clouds you will need water (Jessa). Another fact is that clouds are noticeable in the sky because the atmosphere is cold (Jessa).
    http://www.universetoday.com/73198/what-are-clouds-made-of/#ixzz29381JVmd

    Paragraph 1:
    Clouds are formed when there is a lot of water vapor in the air. Water vapor is the form of water in its gas position. The gas particles are floating around in the atmosphere until it reaches a certain point. Water vapor is made when the water inside lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans are evaporated. This process forms a cloud because a cloud is just a large amount of gas particles grouped together.
    scienceprojectideasforkids.com/2010/cloud-formation/
    Paragraph2:
    There are types of clouds in quite a few ways. There could be differences in air pressure, and temperature. Air pressure takes a big effect on the type of cloud. These factors will affect the size and shape of the cloud. In addition the amount of water vapor in each cloud will also affect the shape and size of the cloud.

    Title of Project or Topic: Wi-Fi Enhancer
    
Problem: What is the effect of an aluminum parabola on Wi-Fi signal
    
Independent Variable: the different sized aluminum (measured in cm)
    
Dependent Variable: Wi-Fi signal strength (mbps)
    
Constants: the same router, the distance from the router and the pc
    
Hypothesis: 
If the parabola is larger; the signal strength will be greater.
    Control Set-Up: the router without the aluminum parabola

    How this project relates to society: the aluminum parabola can help people make their Wi-Fi signal stronger in the dead corners where there is no Wi-Fi
    
Procedure: 

    Step 1:Make one 10 cm, one 25cm, one 40, and one 55 sized aluminum parabola

    • First cut a piece of the aluminum sheet (depending on which sample)
    • Then fold the aluminum sheet in half
    
• Next, fold each of the sides inward
    
• Make a curve out of the aluminum to resemble the general shape of a parabola

    Step 2: Put the sample 1 aluminum parabola behind the router

    Step 3: 
do the speed test five times before moving onto the next parabola.
    Step 4: Repeat with the other samples

    Step 5: Repeat the speed test several times for accurate results

    Step 6: Graph your data
    
Vocabulary words: parabola, radio waves, megabytes, Wi-Fi, router, signal, and reflector

    Key question 1: How does signal strength of a router impact Internet browsing? 

    Key question 2: How does aluminum make a signal stronger? 

    Key question 3: how does the computer connect with the router wirelessly? 

    Key question 4: What is a parabola? How should it be attached to the router?

    Introduction: The research topic is aluminum Wi-Fi parabolas. The question is “What is the effect of different sized parabolas on Wi-Fi signal strength?” This relates to society because it will enhance people Wi-Fi strength.one fact about this project is that a German chemist by the name of Humphry Davy was the one who discovered aluminum by first decomposing alumina in an electric arc to make a metal. That wasn’t pure aluminum but a combination of iron and aluminum. (Dr.Doug Stewart). Another fact about this project is Wi-Fi signal strength is the number of strength you have between your computer and router. (Doug)

    Paragraph 1:Signal strength impacts browsing because if your current signal strength is low your browsing will be slow as well. This is because Wi-Fi signal strength is the number of strength you have between your computer and your router. If the signal is higher the better. This will impact your Internet browsing because if are just browsing the web and your signal is low meaning there are less bars, your internet will be slowed down because you have no strength. Just like when you are tired you don’t have that much strength to get “full bars”. (Amit Agarwal)

    Paragraph 2: Aluminum makes signal stronger because of reflection. As the radio waves in the Wi-Fi signal hit any material, some of the power is transmitted into and possibly through the material. But since aluminum is a metal, almost all the power is absorbed within the first few atoms of the aluminum. Aluminum is not a dielectric material that means that all of the power is reflected not only some power is absorbed and comes out from the other side. Since aluminum is not dielectric almost all the power is absorbed and so travels through the router. (Adrian Popa)

    . Name: Ibrahim Mozawalla
    Topic: Ball bouncing dynamics
    Problem: Does air pressure affect the dynamics of ball bouncing?
    Hypothesis: If the ball has more air then it will bounce higher
    Independent Variable: The air pressure
    Dependent Variable: Height of the Ball Bounce.
    Constants: Same weather, same type of ball, and the same type of surface
    Control Set-Up: The balls that are filled up normally. Normal means to use the typical or usual.
    Connection with Society: If athletes want a ball to be bouncier they would have to know how much air to give it.
    Procedure: step 1: 1. Collect the supplies(ball air pump, ball pressure gauge, video camera, tape measure,balls,and volunteers.
    step 2: Take all air pressure out of the balls.
    step 3: Fill the ball with the right amount of air pressure.
    step 4: Set up a meter stick against a wall, and a camera filming the set up.
    step 5: set up the control
    step 6: Drop the ball (without throwing it downwards).
    step 7: repeat this process 4 times to ensure results.
    step 8: Review the tape to take measurements of the bounce height
    step 9: form everything into conclusion.
    Vocabulary words: pressure gauge, pressure, friction, kinetic energy, and gravity
    Key Question 1: How does air pressure impact people? Does does air pressure impact weather?
    Key Question 2: What is the air pressure of the atmosphere? What is the air pressure at the surface of the earth? What is the pressure within the earth?
    Key Question 3: Why do balls bounce? How does air pressure impact the bounce? Why do referees check how much air is in the ball before a game?
    Key Question 4: What is the air pressure in a tire? What is the air pressure in a basketball? What is the air pressure in a football?
    Introduction: This project is about ball bouncing dynamics. It relates to the society because if athletes want a ball to be bouncier they would have to know how much air to give it. Athletes all around the world would want to know if the balls bounce is affected by its air pressure. Air pressure is the push that air has against all surfaces that it touches. Air pressure basically refers to the volume of air in a particular environment, with greater volumes creating higher pressures.

    Paragraph 1: Air pressure affects the weather. Air pressure is the force on you, by the weight of tiny particles of air (air molecules). Weather forecasters measure air pressure with a barometer. Barometers are used to measure the current air pressure at a particular location in “inches of mercury. Pressure is the force exerted on a unit area, and atmospheric pressure is equivalent to the weight of air above a given area on Earth’s surface.

    “Atmospheric Pressure: The Force Exerted by the Weight of Air.” Atmospheric Pressure: The Force Exerted by the Weight of Air. N.p., n.d. Web. 19 Oct. 2012. .

    Paragraph 2: There is air all around us. The amount of air pressure in the surface of the earth varies. At sea level this is about 1 kg/cm2. The pressure gradually decreases from the surface of the Earth at a rate of about 1 cm Hg/123 m (1 in/1,000 ft) in the first few kilometers. About half of the weight of air is found in the first 5.5 km of the atmosphere. The air gets very thin above that point. The layer of air continues until about the middle of the mesosphere. At this point, air is too thin to be measured.

    Question 1: What are the components of a motor?
    The answer to that are many things. There are different components for different types of motors. For a rocket motor the components would be the nozzle assembly, factory joints, field joints, steel case, and a propellant. However a motor for an automobile such as a car, the components would be a permanent magnet, the current source, and iron core, the resistor, rotating conductor, a shaft and an iron yoke.

    Question 2: How does a motor work?
    A motor works by that during a full cycle of the rotor, the current that runs through each winding change direction once. So, each electromagnet will change its magnetic polarity. However, the windings of the two magnets are winded in reversed direction. Thus, when one electromagnet is north, the other is South and vice versa. This is a cycle that keeps going until the motor dies or the engine is turned off.

    Question 3: How long has society been using motors?
    The first motor was created in 1834. However, In 1885, Karl Benz had introduced the first gasoline powered automobile. This was invention because this use of transportation is still used till this day. Automobiles are used worldwide. From America,to Japan to India. The Automobile has made a great impact in today’s modern world. All thanks to the motor itself.

    Question 4: What are the most common objects that contain motors?
    1. Some common objects that contain motors are cars, trains, and airplanes. Motors are used in many forms of transportation. Without motors that aren’t manual we would have to make the motor move ourselves and not electrically.
    2. Introduction
    This project is about how windings may cause a motor to work faster. Windings are the coils in the motor (Simon). They are essential in the motor because they affect how efficiently the motor works. This topic relates to society because it will show how to fix the motor of a car, or CD player. Inventors all around the world have come up with new and innovative mechanical devices used by millions of people. A blacksmith from Vermont named Thomas Davenport invented the first motor engine, in 1833. It was DC powered, meaning it came from a direct current (Thomas).Davenport’s motor engine was used to build a more powerful printing press. This topic relates to society, because without motors, we would not have the many forms of transportation that we have today (The).Society Without the invention of the motor today wouldn’t be able to have transportation such as trains, cars, motorcycle ,buses, motor boats and all things of that nature.

    Title: How Do Clouds Form?
    Problem: How does atmospheric conditions impact cloud formation?
    Independent Variable: Temperature (Part 1) and Humidity (Part 2)
    Dependent Variable: Cloud formation
    Constants: The cloud chamber will stay the same.
    Hypothesis: If temperature is increased, then the size of the cloud will decrease and eventually disappear. However, if humidity is increased the cloud will increase in size.
    Control Set-Up: place the cloud chamber in room temperature and see what happens.
    How this problem relates to society: This project relates to society because it helps us predict the weather and is helpful for meteorologists to tell if it going to be a sunny, cloudy, or rainy day.
    Procedures:
    1st Step: Collect supplies: big pickle jar, gloves, a pot of hot water, a jar of ice, and a camera.
    2nd Step: Cover bottom of jar with water. Put on pair of gloves with fingers pointing to the water. Insert hand inside the jar with the open end of the glove on the seal. Pull hand out without disturbing the seal. Take out glove from the jar and put a lit match inside and replace the glove. Take out the glove and fog will start to form and then you have a cloud.
    3rd Step: When the cloud is formed, increase and decrease the temperature of the cloud chamber. To increase the temperature, place the cloud chamber in a hot pot of water and to decrease the temperature place the cloud chamber in a jar of ice.
    4th Step: To increase the humidity of the cloud chamber, add more water to the jar and to decrease the humidity add less water to the jar.
    5th: Take pictures during each trial to back up observation.
    Vocabulary words: Temperature, humidity, moisture, cloud formation, atmosphere, condensation, and condensation nuclei
    Key Question 1: How do clouds form?
    Key Question 2: Why are there different types of clouds?
    Key Question 3: How does temperature effect cloud formation?
    Key Question 4: How does humidity effect cloud formation?
    Introduction:
    This science project is about cloud formation. In this project you will learn how clouds are formed. This experiment will explain the process very well. This project relates to society because it explains how clouds affect our climate. It also discusses how the shapes of different clouds are formed. It will be easy to predict the weather after understanding this project. Especially meteorologists find this information very helpful. It is a fact that to make clouds you will need water (Jessa). Another fact is that clouds are noticeable in the sky because the atmosphere is cold (Jessa).
    http://www.universetoday.com/73198/what-are-clouds-made-of/#ixzz29381JVmd

    Paragraph 1:
    Clouds are formed when there is a lot of water vapor in the air. Water vapor is the form of water in its gas position. The gas particles are floating around in the atmosphere until it reaches a certain point. Water vapor is made when the water inside lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans are evaporated. This process forms a cloud because a cloud is just a large amount of gas particles grouped together.
    scienceprojectideasforkids.com/2010/cloud-formation/
    Paragraph 2:
    There are types of clouds in quite a few ways. There could be differences in air pressure, and temperature. Air pressure takes a big effect on the type of cloud. These factors will affect the size and shape of the cloud. In addition the amount of water vapor in each cloud will also affect the shape and size of the cloud.

    Topic: Distractions with gaming

    Problem: Does distractions effect gaming score

    Hypothesis: If a person is distracted then there gaming score will decrease. The person who is not distracted will have a higher gaming score.

    Independent Variable:Distraction

    Dependent Variable: Game Score

    Constants: I would do all test in the evening, the volume of the game will be 20, all of the testing will be done at my house, and the age of the gamer will be 11,12, and 13.

    Control set up: One player will be will be playing a game with no distraction. While the other player will playing with a distraction such as a cell phone, music, or a really loud noise.

    Connection with society: This project has a connection to society because, in the world now people have been dying from texting and driving at the same time. This experiment will show that you cant do 2 things at the same time.

    Procedure: Step 1: Let each person play the game three times without distractions and record their score

    Step 2: Let each person play the game three times with distractions and record their score

    Step 3: Graph all of the gaming scores of the people who played with distractions and who did not play with distractions.

    Vocabulary words: Distraction, gaming, effect, Graph, texting, driving

    Key Question 1 : Should the game be played on a console or computer?

    Key Question 2 : Will older people be less distracted?

    Key Question 3: Should the game be played with no sound?

    Key Question 4: Which distraction will distract the average person the most?

    Introduction: My project is about whether a distraction effects a gamer score. Some people are distracted very easy and some people are not distracted as easy as others.This project will determine whether or not that is true.

    Paragraph 1: In the experiment the game should be played on a PC, because the games you need to play now in this time period requires a lot of “juice” to run on. A console can brake down at any time.

    “Consoles vs PC Gaming.” Techi.com. N.p., n.d. Web. 19 Oct. 2012..
    Paragraph 2: Older people will be distracted more because two parts of the brains frontal lobes shift no a “seesaw imbalance” which causes older people to become less efficient to dealing with distractions than younger people.

    TITLE OF PROJECT: Would you like GREASE with that?
    PROBLEM: Which brand of potato chips is the
    greasiest?
    INDEPENDENT VARIABLE: The chip brands used (lays, Utz, pop chips, dirty chips, and pringles)
    DEPENDENT VARIABLE: the amount of grease
    CONSTANTS: amount of chips being used
    HYPOTHESIS: If Lays potato chips is tested for its grease it will have the worst results meaning it will have the most grease
    CONTROL SET-UP: Utz (chip brand)
    How this project relates to society: It tells us which brand of chips is healthier for us
    PROCEDURE:
    1) Buy several brands of chips (Lays, Utz, Pop Chips, etc.)
    2) Take one ounce of potato chips from each brand and place onto a sheet of graph paper (make sure you crush the chips into fine pieces)
    3) Cover chips with wax paper and let sit for 1 minute
    4) Remove wax paper and record the size of the grease stains using the graph paper by seeing the amount of boxes each stain takes up.
    5) Compare the size of the grease stains to see which one has the most grease.
    6) Repeat several more times for accurate results.
     Vocabulary words: Grease, wax paper, kitchen scale
    Key question 1: what brand of chips has less fat in it?
    Key question 2: Do you NEED grease/oil to make potato chips?
    Key question 3: which brand of chips tastes the best? (opinion)
    Key question 4: is the grease used for adding more flavor?

    Vocabulary words:Grease,oil
    Key question 1: what brand of chips is the healthiest?
    Key question 2: why does each chip brand require oil to be made? Key question 3: why are some brands cooked different ways?
    Key question 4: which brand of chips is the best tasting? (opinion)

    Introduction:
    For my project I will be testing which brand of potato chips is the greasiest. This relates to society because potato chips have been a family favorite for decades and so it’s good for them to know which brand is the healthiest! The chips I will be using for my project will be Lays, Utz, Pop Chips, and Pringles. And all of them contain different amounts of grease and oils perhaps even none! To begin with, there are many ways to make potato chips. For instance, you can pop them, bake them, fry them, you can even microwave them! Unfortunately, some ways of making potato chips are not as healthy as the others. But no matter which way you make them; do they still require oil to be made? The answer is no! There are other ways of making these yummy bite size chips. Such as popping them and toasting them!
    To continue, each brand of potato chips has their own amount of fat in it. For instance, Pringles has 7 grams of fat in it (Cal). Utz has 9 (UTZ). Lays has 10 grams of fat (Lay). Pop chips have 4 grams of fat. And last but definitely not least dirty chips have 12 grams of fat. This is all measured per ounce! Imagine eating a whole bag of potato chips! You would be consuming a whole lot of fat than you expected.

    Topic: Mold and the effects of light on it growth

    Problem: Does mold grow more in the dark or in the light?

    Hypothesis: I think mold grow better in darkness.

    Independent Variable: Mold

    Dependent Variable: Darkness and light

    Constants: the amount of light

    Control Set-Up: Mold in a light between the two lights

    Connection with Society: People many times have mold in their house and this can affect their health.

    Procedure (LISTED):
    Buy bread
    Take two pieces of bread and measure them to make sure they are as close as can be to the same
    Let mold form
    Put one piece of bread in a dark setting at room temperature and the other under light bright at room temperature
    Measure the molds’ growth
    Come to a conclusion
    Repeat
    Vocabulary words:Temperature,Bread,mold,light,darkness,

    Key Question 1: What type of mold typically grows on bread?
    Key Question 2: What are the best habitats and/or conditions for mold to grow in?
    Key Question 3: Does mold usually grow in warm or cold conditions?
    Key Question 4: What are the affects of mold on humans?

    Introduction: This project is about mold and the affects of light on its growth. Molds are organisms that are microscopic and can spread by releasing spores. Spores can travel in many way by animals, such as insects, water such as pipe, and air. A spore is like a seed from a tree when its leaves fall so do seeds and pollen they spread and form new trees just as mold forms new mold with it spores. When mold forms in peoples’ houses it is not good for them because mold may give you many upper respiratory problems. If people are sick with a form of lung disease they should probably stay away from mold because it may cause them some discomfort.

    Paragraph 1: The best habitats for mold are in very high humidity or some form of water or condensation such as a pipe. Mold also likes to grow on natural things. Mold can spread more easily in wet conditions. Although mold grows best in wet or humid conditions it can grow in many other places as well.

    Paragraph 2:”Five types of mold that grow on bread are penicillium, rhizopus nigricans, aspergillus, mucon, and Rhizopis stolnifener” according to wiki answers. If mold grows on bread it is said that you should not eat it because mold can grow under the surface.

    Title of Project or Topic: How will caffeine impact the growth of plants?
    Problem: If you give plants caffeine will they grow differentially.
    Independent Variable: The amount of caffeine given to the plant. Dependent Variable: The height of the plant vertically.
    Constants: They will all be the same type of plant (mustard plants), they will get the same amount of sunlight, and they will be kept in the same temperature. Twice a week on Tuesday and Friday I’m going to water the plants. I will water them at 7:05. I’m going to record my word every day at 7:30. The caffeine pills have 200 ml of caffeine.
    Hypothesis: If the plants are given caffeine, then they will grow faster but die earlier.
    Control Set-Up: Plant A (the control) will receive no caffeine at all. Just regular water.
    How this project relates to society: It will show people if giving plants caffeine will it make the grow faster.
    Procedure:
    Step 1: First I will buy four plants.
    Step 2: Next buy caffeine pills at a local drug store.
    Step 3: Plant A will get no caffeine when its watered. Plant B will get a half of a crushed pill mixed in its water. Plant C will get 1 crushed caffeine pill when its watered and plant D will get 1 and a half crushed pill when its watered.
    Step 4: I will water the plants 2 times a week.
    Step 5: finally I’m going to watch a record what happens every day.
    Vocabulary words: Caffeine, Mustard plants, dosage, drowsiness, high per, acetyl cholinesterase, drug overdose, root of plant, and pills
    Key Question 1: How does caffeine affect animals?
    In this project it will tell you how caffeine affects animals. Animals can be affected by caffeine because caffeine messes up the nerve tissue in your brain. If the animal takes 10g or more of the drug in a short period of time they will die. 10g is about (70-100 cups of coffee). Caffeine is an also bitter tasting alkaloid. I don’t know how an animal could consume that much.

    Key question 2: How many people every year die of caffeine overdose?
    In this project it will state how many people every year die of caffeine over dose. It’s really unlikely to die of caffeine overdose because you will need to drink about 85 cups of coffee in a little bit of time to die of it (10g of caffeine). That is why you will probably not die of caffeine overdose. Some symptoms of caffeine over dose are excitement, restlessness, nervousness, muscle twitches, seizures, and then death. So that’s why people hardly ever die of caffeine overdose.

    Title of Project or Topic; Male vs. Female
    Problem (in question form): Who can remember more numbers males or females?
    Independent Variable (what you are changing): Gender
    Dependent Variable (what you are measuring change of): Amount of numbers recalled.
    Constants (aspects that stay the same throughout testing): noise in room, all gender is from seventh grade.
    Hypothesis (answers question in an “if”/”then” statement): If male and female students are giving a test based on memory, male students will remember more numbers.
    Control Set-Up (the object that will show “normal” results – what we can compare results to): seventh grade female students compared to seventh grade males students.
    How this project relates to society: Numbers are used in different jobs and certain genders remember numbers better.
    Procedure (steps in your experiment):
    1) I’d make three lists of ten numbers between 1 and 100. Use the same amount of single digit numbers on each list. The first list will be used for trial 1, the second for trial 2, and the third for trial 3.
    2) Give Subject 1 (the first person you’re testing) 1 minute to study the numbers on List 1.
    3) Ask them to write down the numbers they can remember.
    4) Repeat for each list, and you’ll have three trials for that first person.
    5) Find at least 5 boys and 5 girls to do the tests on (all three trials). Record their name, gender, and scores on each trial.
    6) Average their scores together in another column on my table.
    Vocabulary words: short term memory, long term memory, cerebral cortex, hippocampus, prefrontal cortex and temporal lobe.
    Key Question 1:Who remembers more numbers males or females?
    Key Question 2: Are the cerebral cortex in males and females the same?
    Key Question 3: Does an average junior high school female have more attention span than a junior high school male?
    Key Question 4: Who has a better short term memory male or female?

    This project is about who remembers more numbers males or females. People use their memory everyday. They might forget where they put their keys, the remote or take a test and forget an answer. Memory is our ability to store, encode and retrieve information in the human brain (Mastin).
    Memory is how you remember things from the past. Male and female brains are not the same. Scientists discovered that there are differences in the structure of male and female brains (Hensley). There are certain areas in which females have the advantage and certain areas where men have the advantage. Men have a greater ability to process mathematical information (Cherry). Therefore most men will remember more numbers then women.
    The cerebral cortex plays a critical role in memory. This is where most of our complex thinking takes place. The cerebral cortex is thicker in women then in men (Tortura) . Men have a larger parietal cortex , which explains why they are better with space perception, balance and recognition of memory (Tortura). Women have a better memory for learning languages, recalling words, objects, scents and faces. This is because women have a larger hippocampus region ((Tortura) The part of the brain called the inferior –parietal lobe is bigger in males (Hensley). This is why males do better with numbers and math.

    Here is my Introduction Paragraph! I am hurrrying myway to catch up with the others

    Name: Nefissa Kemech
    The topic being tested is “Can a male or female remembering the most numbers?” This project relates to society because the point is to see if males or females remember more numbers so this can connect to what kind of careers are best for male and females. One fact about this is project is that females are better with remembering numbers like birthdays, anniversaries, phone numbers, etc. This is based on their long- term memory. Long- term memories are thoughts stuck to your brain almost permanently. One last fact is that males have short- term memory and only remember things that were just heard or spoken. These are two facts based on the topic being tested.

    Topic: Look Out!
    Problem: Do people who play video games have a quicker reaction time?
    Hypothesis: If people play video games for more hours per week, then they will have a quicker reaction time
    Independent Variable: Time Playing Video Games in hours or minutes per week
    Dependent Variable: Time in seconds
    Constants: The people, the website and the observations
    Control Set-Up: People who play no video games
    Connection with Society: This project relates to society because it shows that playing video games and sports may impact reaction time.
    Procedure (LISTED):

    1 I will be going to be testing video games play per week

    2 finding at least 20 participants who play video games per week
    3 I would use this website to record their reaction time http://www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime/index.php
    4 I’d record each person’s name and hours of play per week, and then have them do five trials of reaction time on the computer by using the website.
    5 Once i have all of my results, I’ll be able to graph the playing hours vs. the reaction time and see if there is a correlation

    Vocabulary words: genre, correlation, reaction, reflexes reaction rate, video games, Types of video games

    Key Question 1: What are reflexes? How do they impact our bodies?
    Key Question 2: Why do doctors test reflexes during visits?
    Key Question 3: What causes quick reflexes?
    Key Question 4: Do playing games cause quick reflexes? Does playing games cause short reaction time?

    Introduction: Does playing video games affect reaction time. Did you know that 217 million people play video games? Every year the number increases by 17 percent. Did you also know that video games increases one’s hand-eye coordination, so playing video games is not bad. This project relates to society because it shows that playing video games and sports may impact reaction time.

    Paragraph 1: What is reflex? Reflex is someone’s automatic action that your body does in response to something without you even having to think about it. An example is blinking and sneezing. Shivering is also another reflex. Reflexes are controlled by your nervous system, which is made up of your brain.

    http://kidshealth.org/kid/talk/qa/reflexes.html

    Paragraph 2: The doctors test your reflex because, the doctors try to determine if there is something wrong with your nerves or if you have a back or spinal cord injury. The doctors use an instrument called a reflex hammer.

    http://www.positscience.com/brain-resources/brain-facts-myths/how-vision-works

    The question being asked in this question is how does he brain observe vision? Your’e brain starts to develop vision right when you begin to observe light in he retina which is a part of your eye. Then cells see colors and transport back and forth to the brain. After this you can clearly see all that you must. It is actually amazing to notice how many times your brain works everyday! In conclusion, this is how the brain observes sound.

    The question that is now being asked is which is more important? Hearing or seeing? If you were in danger of risking one of these many would say that they rather lose their hearing. This is said because without hearing you can still see and even earn to lip read because of the prior knowledge you had before. In conclusion, it is said that if you had the choice, you would rather keep yourvision than hearing because of its importance.

    The question being asked here is can you live without seeing or hearing? The answer to this question is yes it is possible but it is very hard to. A perfect example, of Helen Keller is acceptable. She overcame many obstacles but she still survived. You can even survive without all of you sense but it is very hard. In conclusion, it is possible to live without seeing and hearing.

    Vocabulary Paragraph
    “Http://dictionary.reference.com/.” N.p., n.d. Web.

    Some of the vocabulary words used in this project are Hearing, Vision, Auditory, Memory, and Hearing aid. Hearing is the faculty or sense by which sound is perceived. Vision is the act or power of sensing with the eyes; sight. Auditory is pertaining to hearing, to the sense of hearing, or to the organs of hearing. Memory is the mental capacity or faculty of retaining and reviving facts, events, impressions, etc., or of recalling or recognizing previous experiences. Lastly, a hearing aid is a compact electronic amplifier worn to improve one’s hearing, usually placed in or behind the ear. These are all of my vocabulary words.

    Procedure (LISTED):
    1) Make the solution by mixing the ingredients and buy the store bubbles
    2) Test the entire thing with three solutions – the bubbles from the store and then three different times with different amounts of glycerin
    3) Record the results
    4)Do test over again to ensure accurate results
    5) Make an average flight time for the three solutions
    Vocabulary words: Glycerin, Karo syrup , Watch glass, Flight time,
    Key Question 1: What types of products contain glycerine?
    Key Question 2: Why do bubbles form from certain solutions?
    Key Question 3: What makes bubbles pop in the air?
    Key Question 4: How much air time can a bubble potentially get?
    Introduction: Introduction
    My project is what solution is the best. This relates to society because when the test is over I can tell if what the companies that make bubbles are economically effective. One fact about bubbles is that they turn into a shape that has the least amount of surface area, which is a sphere. Also, “bubbles are made up of air surrounded by a thin film of water. The film, or skin, wraps around moving air, trapping it within. A soapy solution allows the skin of the water to stretch.”(http://learningexpressblog.typepad.com/blog/2011/03/blog-bubbles-facts-and-fun-from-learning-express-toys.html)
    Paragraph one: The types of products that contain glycerine are drinks like beer and wine. According to Kansas University, the glycerine makes the marshmallows gooey. Candy bars, gum, and taffy, even sugar free labeled candy has glycerine because it makes it taste sweet. It also appears in soups, broths, and cereal etc.
    Paragraph two: Bubbles form certain solutions because a bubble is a thin layer of water is sandwiched in between two layers of soap molecules. Also, bubbles form spheres because that is the shape with the smallest surface area. When bubbles meet they will merge into a larger
