Day 39 – Ecodome #3

Posted on Dec 14 by

Observations: No water left in the cup Soil is very wet The plant was very green Not much water droplets on the container.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_m20HwWIQgGWER2UXFOaUNLSDg/view?usp=sharing Research: Grasshoppers are not picky eaters, but they are more commonly seen eating grass than leaves from a tree, so in our final ecodome, we are planning to put a square piece of grass in our ecodome. Something that we are planning to figure out is how to keep water, so that the atmosphere isn’t too humid, and so that the water doesn’t all...

Day 21 – Ecodome #2

Posted on Dec 13 by

Observations: Grasshopper had turned brown and mushy. Smell did not smell very bad like mold. Most parts of the plants looked green except some leaves. Green algae¬†were in the plastic bag. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_m20HwWIQgGUnpodkJVY0lCUk0/view?usp=sharing Changes we are planning to make: Use a cup instead of the plastic bag because it holds too much water. We are putting less water (100 ml). using a different type of plant because the plants’ leaves turned brown both times. Research: Because the grasshopper was very wet and mushy, we thought that the grasshopper had died because of humidity. We researched this, and our assumption was correct. We found out that grasshoppers can die if the weather and atmosphere is too humid. The next time we build an ecodome, we are planning to take the plastic bag out because it seems to hold too much water. By putting less water, we are hoping that the air will be less moist. Seeing that the grasshopper was very wet inside, we are assuming that the grasshopper died of too much moisture. We researched that our assumption was true,...

Day 7 – Ecodome #1

Posted on Dec 13 by

Observations: The plant was still alive, but parts of leaves were brown. The smell of the inside was very fresh, there was no bad smell. There was no mold. The inside was very warm, and water droplets were on the container sides.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_m20HwWIQgGdGtTVlNjNEZOckE/view For the grasshopper to survive, it needs oxygen, food (glucose), and water to survive. For there to be enough oxygen, plants are needed to convert some carbon dioxide to oxygen. Also the waste from the grasshopper will also help the plant grow, being used as fertilizer. For the sugar, we can try putting in a different type of plant, as food. In our next ecodome, we will put about 100 ml of water, since we figured the grasshopper wouldn’t need too much water. Also, in our last ecodome, too much water lead to too much moisture in the atmosphere. We found that grasshoppers are vegetarian. They are not picky eaters that eat almost most plants. They prefer wheat, barley, and corn. Because grasshoppers are not picky, we are planning to use the same type of...
