Introduction:

INVESTINGATING QUESTION: HOW DOES INCREASED EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS AFFECT RADISHES?

HYPOTHESIS: IF EXTREME WEATHER IS PRESENT, THE RADISH POPULATION WILL DECREASE BECAUSE THE RADISH CAN'T HANDLE THE EXTREMITIES

GLOBAL WARMING


Methods: Duration: 10 days Control: Treatment: 4 seeds  1tbsp H2O   heat sunlight

4 seeds  1/2 tsp H2O   heat sunlight

Methods: Our research study lasted the duration of ten days. We had two groups where one was our control group and the other was the treatment/experimental group. Both experimental and control group had four radish seeds each, which we planted separately. Everyday for ten days my teammates and I measured all eight seeds to see the progress if any. We used a ruler to help with the measurements when checking for growth One of the groups we had was the experimental group. This was the group that we tested in increased weather events. We chose to mimic a drought. In a drought there is little to no water for the plants and high amounts of sunlight and heat. In class we put our four planted radish seeds next to a heat lamp to create the “heat of the sun� to show the drought part we only provided each seed with half a teaspoon of water everyday once a day. It including the weekend.

Results: My group and I collected the pre treatment data for our experimental group and all four plants were at zero. The reason why is because we started with seeds and there were no sprouts when we planted them. The same measurements were collected for our control group as the experimental group because in order for it to be a fair experiment we had to start at the same place. Which in this case would be zero. For our post data we collected that all four treatment plants had no measurement change. For the control group we had an increase of three and a half millimeters for plant one. The percent difference between the control and the treatment group was one hundred percent. The control group increased by one hundred percent, and the treatment group had no weight change.

Discussion: The investigating question that we asked was ‘How does increased extreme weather events affect radishes?’. We hypothesized that if extreme weather is present then the radish population will decrease because the radish plant will not be able to handle the extremities of the weather. All plants from the control group except for one had an increase of one hundred percent. As for the treatment group all four plants had no weight change.
