Did you know that elephants drink up to 50 gallons of water per day? If they don't their body has biochemical and chemical reactions. Elephants live in very hot and dry climate so they need to take in more water than what they excrete through their urine and what they evaporate through their skin and…

  Use LaMotte test kits and extra BOD bottles instead of lab protocol. Once samples are fixed, they can be stored in refrigerator for titration later. Expand study to include natural water bodies (lakes, ponds, etc.). Have students conduct a seasonal study of these water bodies. Remember that science lab kits can be used to…

Insist on silence during lab so accurate measurements can be made. Borrow equipment from hospitals or doctors offices. Ask for donations of old equipment. Set up several different temperature baths (ahead of time) and have students rotate Daphina to each water bath. Always remember to set up a control experiment when working on biology science…

Use house plant if bush beans are not available. Cut plant stems and insert stem into tubing while stem is submerged in a pan of water. This prevents air gaps from forming in xylem vessels. Buy disposable glass pipettes (and reuse). Preparing stem cross section can be optional. Before introducing experiments for biology science fair…

  Borrow electrophoresis equipment. Do demo of electrophoresis. Do simulation of electrophoresis. Use predigested DNA for electrophoresis. Practice your demonstration techniques before helping your students develop their own biology science fair projects.

Use fresh pea seeds.   Placing wet, non-germinated peas in vials seems to cause problems with data. To avoid wetting dry peas, determine the mass, volume and hence density of 100 dry seeds (D=M/V). Throw these peas away and then use 25 new, truly dry peas for vial (V=M/D).     Use Teflon plumbing tape…
