Investigatory Project

Scientific research conducted by high school students.
This mini website are made to promote science and technology consciousness among the general public. And help students find all possible online resources for their research projects in chemistry, physics, biology and other science school projects.

Science Investigatory Project

West Tennessee Science Fair: Recognizes Primary Students Invention

Jackie Prather students are required to write a research paper and keep a journal on the process.

In spite of being worried about the result of the judging process of her two-month project in the Science Fair, Claire Myers, a fifth-grader at Denmark Elementary, won the first place in the life science division for her soil experiment. Myer’s theory proved that the soil in her grandmother’s garden would harvest a bigger plant than one from her own.

Guyabano's Health Benefits

Most of us would love to make guyabano fruit juice, puree, tea and shake. This fruit is grown in Central America, sub-Saharan parts of Africa and Southeast Asia. Filipinos believe in the wonders of guyabano. It is known to relieve pain, inflammation, asthma, lowers fever, spasms, heart rate and blood pressure. It is also good for diabetic individuals and its extracts can prevent cancer cells from forming. Viruses, fungi and harmful bacteria can also be prevented when you eat guyabano because of its anti-microbial potential.

NASA approved science experiments of Grade Schools

A Science Symposium was held at Hardy Elementary School last October. The event was participated by students from Hardy, Parmley and Turner Elementary Schools in the Willis Independent School District. The participants performed science experiments. Symposium participants focus on real microgravity experiments for the International Space Station. About 100 students of Hardy Elementary listened to Dr. Lisa Brown, a former NASA employee, as she discussed the history of space exploration. She also pointed out that schools should give importance in making science projects. To follow the protocol set by NASA, students use salt solutions, grass seed, ants and fleas in their experiments.

Ohmic Heating Project

Bio-Processing Division of PhilMech and Department of Science and Technology have shared their resources to conduct further research in a process called Ohmic heating. Ohmic heating is an advanced thermal processing method wherein the food material is heated by passing electricity through it. Electrical energy is dissipated into heat which results in rapid and uniform heating to kill pathogens and microbes. Ohmic heating is also called electrical resistance heating, Joule heating, or electro-heating, and may be used for a variety of applications in the food industry.
