We wanted to observe insect behavior. We decided to observe aggressive/territorial behavior by matching 3 sets of 2 Polynesian fighting crickets to determine which cricket was dominant, and also observe what behaviors they exhibited to become dominant.
Off to the Races: Hissing Cockroach Racing!
Bryant C, Chris C, Luis A, Kentrell A
We wanted to determine if size affected how fast cockroaches could move, and possibly escape predation or adverse environmental conditions. We conducted 3 separate trials of races with 6 different cockroaches and measured how long it took each cockroach to move across a race track we made. Our smallest cockroach was the fastest, but overall size did not affect how fast a cockroach could run.
