1. What is the weight of your school bag?

    Investigation

    Goal

    • To track the correlation between the weight of a school bag and each grade in the school.
    • Discover which grade carries the heaviest school bags.

    Research question

    • Does the use of digital textbooks in middle and high school correlate to schoolbags becoming lighter during those years?
    • Does using digital textbooks- instead of paper ones- really affect the weight of a schoolbag?

    Equipment

    School bag, electronic scale(s)

    Why use data from multiple participants?

    Gathering results from many different schools allows a comparison to be made.
