Goal

The goal of this grant is to give students the opportunity to pursue research they are passionate about while giving them the chance to engage in hands-on learning with higher-level research. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will carry out their research projects using the materials provided through this grant. Diverse research methods will be used by the students; for example, scientific research on the effects of crib-biting in horses, a correlational study on how walking/running affects asprosin levels, and how algae affects the oxygen levels in water. 

 

Benefits to my students

The 8 students will be given the opportunity to go beyond surface-level research to implement methods that will give them a greater understanding of conducting research and the wide variety of research methods available. The research that will be conducted by my students will be experimental research projects, correlational studies, and more. With this grant my students will be able to have equipment that will help conduct experiments and gather data that will allow them to fully understand the topics at hand. 

 

Budget Narrative

The tools and materials we are asking for are necessary for students to carry out their research projects. The grant will provide an Oxygen meter to test the dissolved oxygen levels of water samples with algae in them, a PH tester and manure tester to find the correlation between PH and ammonia in horses that experience crib-biting, and the pedometers to record steps along with the tests for the saliva collected to see the asprosin levels.
