Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Avian Gymnastics: A Study of Successful Bird Feeding

Students could study biomechanics with nothing more than a bird feeder and a couple of cameras. By setting up 1-2 cameras at a fixed bird feeder, students could easily observe and analyze some basic motions, or kinematics, used by the organism to successfully land, feed, or take off. In gathering and analyzing these data, students would learn about the anatomy of comparative vertebrate systems, while simultaneously adding to the ongoing research efforts of real-life scientists.
