IA experiment ideas inspired by Youtube
IB Biology students sometimes has difficulty finding a topic of interest for their IA.
This is meant to be an individual project and before embarking on a10 hours of work it would be best to find something that is really interesting rather than testing osmosis in carrots or germination of seeds.
I am always being drawn to interesting Youtube videos and I often see surprising, some might say "crazy" demonstrations of Biology which I think could make an interesting topic for an IA. This page attempts to collate these ideas for investigations in the hope that it will help teachers and students to try something original and innovative, rather than germination experiments.
To develop any one of these ideas into an IA students will have to research the topic, decide on their own focused research question and then plan their own method. This ideas might help to get everyone started.
