Subject: Botany
Grade level: Middle School - Grades 7-9
Academic Level: Ordinary
Project Type: Experimental
Cost: Low
Awards: None
Affiliation: Selah Intermediate School
Year: 2000
Description: The purpose of this experiment was to measure the amount of color in five different groups of algae plants (spirogyra) each growing at a different temperature.
