- Research Projects
the suggestions below, design your own, or write an essay using
any of the questions throughout this unit as inspiration.
Previous: HandsOn 26 - Liesegang Experiment
Chamber Simulation. In SimuLab 15, we suggested
several topics for further explanation. Choose one and write an in-depth project
report. If you can, explain your results by making use of the derivations
offered throughout the unit. Be sure to compare your results from the simulation
with your experimental results.
Patterns. Try the experiment with the agar gel you prepared for the Bacterial
Growth experiments. You could also try the experiment in a petri dish instead
of a vial. Write a report which compares your results to those obtained from
the traditional experiment described in HandsOn 26.
Comparisons and Distinctions. (a) Write a report which summarizes
similarities and/or differences between the diffusion chamber
and Liesegang experiments. (b) Summarize similarities and differences
between the experiments in this unit with others in the previous
units, for example bacterial growth or termite foraging.
