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.

Reptile Health Monitoring

It is notoriously difficult to determine the health a reptile. Because most are prey species, they tend to hide their illness. Routine monitoring of animal weight, skin shedding, as well as enclosure temperature and humidity can help identify a problem before it gets severe. The student will take these measurements over several weeks from their personal or friends' pets and record them in an excel file. That file can then be used in python to plot the information in graphs to see if we notice any problems/abnormalities.
