What conditions are favorable for: algae growth?
Introduction:
Algae are any of various chiefly aquatic organisms, ranging in size from single-celled forms to the giant kelp. Algae were once considered to be plants but are now classified separately because they lack true roots, stems, leaves, and embryos. Some species of algae are edible and are used as a gelling agents in some foods. 
Some other types of algae contain harmful toxins and are hazardous. If the water is going to be used as drinking water, presence of algae can make the process of filtration more complex and costly. Algae is needed in aquariums and lakes to create a balanced ecosystem. With all these, it seems important for us to be able to control the growth of algae. This knowledge will help us to promote algae growth where we need it and stop algae growth where it can be harmful.
 
 Project description:
In this project you will study the conditions favorable for the growth of algae. You will design and perform experiments to investigate the effect of light, temperature and nutrients on the growth of algae. You may also investigate on methods of controlling or stopping algae growth. You will need about 30 days for your experiments. Most experiments can be performed in test tubes or in clear plastic or glass cups.
