2. Find the project “How To Get Iron Out of Breakfast Cereal”. (Cut/paste and search). Give a brief summary as to how to do that project. (Just a few sentences)
3. Go to the website depicting college level science projects http://chemistry.about.com/od/sciencefairprojects/a/sciprocollege.htm
Pick one of the projects that you find interesting and explain why.
4. Take the interest survey to find out what type of project might interest you http://www.sciencebuddies.org/?gclid=CJ_H4_LswrICFXSSPAodt34ANA (put that you have one month to complete this...YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO A SCIENCE FAIR PROJECT...unless your in Honors Science.
List the first 4 projects that are listed.
5. Browse through the list (from the survey) and find four projects that interest you the most. Write the title of each project. Go to the tab “Learn More” and list all of the careers that are listed for each of "your" four projects.
6. Go to the ”Careers” tab. Find the average salary for the following careers in science (or click the links below):

Make up work. If you missed class on 9/11 or 9/12 then you need to do the following. Make up an experiment that would be suitable for a science fair. Write the hypothesis, write out the experiment then draw an illustration of what the experiment would look like. This is only an exercise; you will not actually do the experiment. Make sure you have a clear Independent variable (responding variable) and a hypothesis. You also need a “control” and show how everything is “constant”.
9/18/12 Chemistry (make up work) take Practice Test on pages 28 and 29. Turn in within 2 days
9/19/12 Chemistry and Physical Science Chapter 1 test (must arrange to take a makeup test within 2 days when you return) Before school, after school or during lunch.
