During lab, the class was given an example of a possible experiment in our lab manual, and also given the option to make our own experiment. We chose to develop our own experiment. In our lab group we decided to examine the effects of various treatments on the growth of seeds. For this particular experiment, we chose Black-Eyed peas. Our hypothesis stated: We predict that the peas grown solely in water would grow the fastest out of the group. In our experiment there was five tested groups of peas. We counted ten peas out for each group. Then, we placed each grouping of peas on a paper towel.
