You guys were so good with helping with my daughter's killer math problem, that I'm going to tap you for her killer science experiment. She has to come up with an experiment using either Corn, Styrofoam or a Sham-Wow. For those of you who don't know what Sham-Wow is (like me), it is a chamois type cloth that is supposed to absorb 20 times it's weight in liquid. It's pitched on a cheesy informercial easily viewed on You Tube. She came up with 2 ideas so far and they were both "taken" by other students. There are 120 students, and they all have to come up with different ideas. It's supposed to be for a "patent". The 2 taken ideas were: 1) Determine how much weight it takes to sink various size pieces of styrofoam. 2) Determine how long it takes for ice to melt in a styrofoam cup undering varying conditions. She needs to be able to have quantifiable data--that is, be able to record information and make graphs and such. At this point, I'm stumped. I think it's going to have to be kind of an off-the-wall idea for it to be original. But it has to be do-able, too. No "How long does it take corn to grow on the moon?" Any ideas????? Help!!!
