Properties of Albedo Science fair Project Abstract question asks: “Do the Properties of Albedo Affect the Surrounding Air?
The Albedo Affect on Surrounding Air was presented at the Illinois Junior Academy of Science (IJAS).
GRADE LEVEL: 12th
CITY/STATE: Benton, IL, USA
AWARD: Minority Award – Region 8 Fair, Illinois
The purpose of this project is to determine if the properties of albedo affect the temperature of surrounding air.
I created two boxes and painted them to have colors of high differentiable albedo measure. I then tested the air surrounding the boxes with temperature probes and my TI-83 Plus calculator. I compared data.
In conclusion, the board with a high albedo measure had temperatures lower than the board with a lower albedo measure.
The IJAS only requires three sections in an abstract, but the ISEF, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (grand daddy of all science fairs) requires six sections. So, be sure to check to see what the guidelines are for your particular science fair.
