INVESTIGATORY PROJECT

Final Project in Science II Biology

What is an IP?

DEFINITION
The study of finding out new things and discovering answers to questions that uses a step by step process called scientific method.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF MAKING AN IP?

OBJECTIVES
Stimulate

interest in Science Provide educational opportunities Share what you have learned to discuss a certain topic. Application of concepts learned Uses scientific method

TOPIC
Choose a topic in Biology wherein you find most interesting with you. Start with a broad general topic to making it more specific. Example:
Genetics Mutation Products of Mutation GMO products sold in the market Mangopol Hardest topic in Biology as viewed by the students - comparison between two hard topics

Allot time reading articles from previous studies and different sources. You can make one research as a template for your research. Kalabasa cookies vs. ordinary cookies Ampalaya cookies vs. ordinary cookies

Your research may either be: Scientific (with products or comparison in scientific side) Educational (something to do with Biology, teachers and students)

Make your life easy, choose a topic which you can finish working in, you find interest, and you can finish on time. You can work individually or by group. You must be dedicated, determined, diligent and zealous to be able to finish your investigatory project.
