Default Well...

First, what grade are you in? We need alittle mor info before we can really help. Anyway, you could monitor the behavior of two mice. This next idea might be a little complex, but you could predict what color two mice baby's would be using genetics and Punnett Squares.

Talking Very Good!

Yes, Punnet Squares can be confusing, but onece you get the jist if them, they seem a lot simpler. DO you know what they are?

Hello!

My mice sounds great. I was thinking you could build maze, and see how quickly the mice can get through the maze with different genres of music.

Or you can see whether the mice can remember how to get through the maze better with a treat at the end or none.

I have always wanted to do projects like the above mentioned, but my teachers have never let us use live animals.

If you do use any of mine, PLEASE contact me and tell me about your results!! You can private message me, or email me at [email]allaisgod82@mugglenet.com[/email].

Cheers! Have fun!

-Alla

Lightbulb Mice !!!!!

What you can do is set up a maze and see which one is the fastest. I know is a little tacky but it might work!!

Default Yeah...but...

Yeah, but the maze thing seems alittle too simple, but that depends on what grade you are in and what you are willing to do.

Thumbs up mouse maze

hey! good idea! mice would be an excellent science fair project.

i agree with most of the others. a maze would be a great idea. try different things. use trap doors, dead ends, whatever you can think of. be creative! switch things up! are the mice better at completing the maze in light, or in darkness? does it matter what kind of cheese you use at the end?

remember, the sky's the limit. GOOD LUCK!

Mazes sound great but maybe you can observe the behavior between two mice as a team in a maze.?!

Lightbulb Maze

Maybe the maze could ave different foods at the end like one time it is cheese while at another time it is regular mice food. What motivates the mouse more which foods or objects do that.

Hope your project comes out well!!!
