2017 Agriscience – Nutrition of Chicks Lab

Agriscience students conduct an experiment determining the effect of different protein levels of feed on the growth and development of baby chicks over a two week period. The chick groups are identified and separated into two brooders. One group receives 18% crude protein and the other group receives 16% crude protein. The chicks are weighed daily and the data is graphed and analyzed.

2017 BSAA Plant Science – Effects of Temperature on the Germination of Seeds

img_2529

BSAA Plant Science students get to play “doctor” while checking seed samples for germination rates. Seeds are placed in cold, room, and warm temperature environments to compare the effects of temperature on the germination of wheat, oat, popcorn, and soybean seed samples. The moist seed samples tend to have a pungent odor.
