  1. Hey Nate! I ended up getting a C on my EE. I'm not sure why I got a notification for this, but I can tell you what I did for mine. I had a bunch of basil seeds and bought some earthworm fertilizer. I also bought soil. I measured, in grams, different ratios of fertilizer, to see how it affected plant height. I had 10 trials.
  2. I know you wrote this in June, but hopefully you see this! I am in year 2 but I want to do something in the biotech field. In the US, a biotech job ranges at about $95k a year. Not bad. Your subjects look good to me, but I would recommend taking a biotech course next year if your school allows it. It helps tremendously. For IB, really all you can do is manage your stress.
  3. I am growing basil and my supervisor told me to have 10 trials each. I would add more trials to yours.
  4. Tomorrow I'm meeting with my supervisor to talk to her about my experiment. I am growing basil plants and only 3/50 have sprouted (from seed) and are growing. I planted them on August 27th. Will I be able to get my diploma and get a D or above even though I can't pull data from the experiment? I'm really stressing out and have worked my butt off for this to fail.
  5. I wanted to do the same thing, but my supervisor wouldn't let me. You might have better luck than I though.
  6. Hi all, I have sort of a situation here. I am doing a biology extended essay on the effects that isopropyl alcohol and soap and water have on bacteria in homes. I sent out a form two days ago so people could participate in my experiment, but no one has responded yet. May 30th, my rough draft for the EE is due (supervisor said without the experiment for the rough draft is fine), and the final draft is due sometime in September. I wanted to get the experiment done in the next 2 week but with the lack of responses i'm starting to worry. Outside of the people I sent out the forms to, I only have 6 people's houses I could swab for bacteria at (family members, neighbors) but I still have to ask them. I should have at least 10 people's houses to do. Over the summer, I will most likely not have access to my schools resources (where it would all be done) and there is a very slim chance I would be able to do it at home. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm really starting to worry and don't know what to do.
  7. https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-10-least-densely-populated-places-in-the-world-2015.html List of cities by population density - Wikipedia Hope these help!
  8. UPDATE: I've made a little progress and have sent out forms so I can start my experiment
  9. I've made attempts to but nothing new so far.
  10. So source cards are just note cards with a website or book source that we are using for our EE. It's just what we were told to find after we had our topic.
  11. I have an outline written, and have 8 source cards (there are 50 cards total including source cards), but I still feel lost on where to start. I know I need to branch off of my outline, but I don't understand how if that makes any sense
  12. Hi all! First post here. My EE question is "To what extent do household cleaners have an effect on bacteria". My EE rough draft is due on the 30th, and I only have one sentence down. I did not procrastinate on this I just feel very lost and don't know where to start. I've literally been staring at my one sentence for days. Does anyone have any guiding first sentences (will be changed later) I just need something that I can go off of. I am following the outline rubric that was given to us and trying to go by that but since I haven't done my experiment yet (which is ok with the head ib supervisor) I'm missing the majority of the rubric. My actual supervisor is of no help unfortunately. I know once I just get the first few sentences down I can knock it out of the park it's just a matter of starting.
