Energy in Nuts Project

Inquiry: During this particular project, I wanted to figure out if nuts were as healthy as projected on packaging and on the article

Research: I looked up caloric content of the nuts. Also, I experimented by burning the nuts and adding kilocalorie for each degree.

Collaboration: I collaborated with a few students, as they helped me measure and also provided me with new nuts to try out.

Presentation: I created a trifold board. The effectiveness was the engagement of the board as well as the design.

Reflection: What I would do differently is try a different food and compare the findings to a different set of food.
