Water Absorbent Polymers for Home Gardening

You'll conduct experiments to determine what commercially-available water absorbent polymers are useful and cost-effective for home gardeners and write a research paper summarizing your results. You'll dive into polymer and agriculture science while also learning research skills such as: 1) How to perform a literature search, 2) How to design a robust experimental plan, 3) How to collect and analyze data, 4) How to write academically.
