Category: Botany
Awards Won:
Hypothesis: Hydrogen peroxide will loosen the seed coat more efficiently than the hydrochloric acid and the isopropyl alcohol, and that it will cause the least amount of damage to the seed.
Primary Materials Used: Petri Dishes Kentucky Bluegrass Seeds, Hydrogen Peroxide, Hydrochloric Acid, Isopropyl Alcohol, Triphenyl Tetrazlium, Microscope, Blotter Paper, Seed Strainer, Seed Piercer, White Labels, Warm Oven
Details: Click Here to see the complete free science fair project "Alternate Methods of Testing Seed Viability" The student performed tests on Kentucky Bluegrass seeds to find out if hydrogen peroxide would be the most effective means of loosening the seed coat. This is a complete project, with graphs, sources and a step by step procedure. Because of this student's experiments, she was forced to reject her original hypothesis.
