Default Popcorn

Great Project, I know someone who did this project. Yes, the brand of popcorn does have an effect. Also, the amount f time popped and the said teperature of the microwave also counters in to it.

This is a good idea for a porject, however, you cnnot truly test it. YOu would have to pop millions of bags to get a good average.

I'd suggest something measurable, like temperature over brands, unless you identify the property in the different brands of popcorn that make them pop this way.

Yesm I agree, it would be better to take on something a little more measureable.

Yes, I think that it is different popping because most popcorn companies buy from different corn growers. Have a nice time with your science project.
