My Example Project for 6th std
Here is my example. Students should try to find their own ideas and are requested NOT to copy this.
1) Form a team (me, my parents, my brother, 3 friends from my society, secretary of our society)
2) Study of the possible area: measure and document the area available. Make a map of the soil area where we can grow trees

a. There is some area where there is shadow of the building most of the times. so trees do not grow.
b. Some area is covered with sand (reti) and hence not many trees grow

My Example Project for 9th std
Immunity booster: Morning tea with ginger
Study the use of ginger as immunity booster for throat infections.
My grandfather used to say “Rainy season is approaching, start putting ginger in the morning tea!” He told us that it is good, and gives us protection against cough and cold.
So I have decided to study this as an immunity booster.
1. I will find all information about morning tea with ginger as immunity booster.
2. I will try to study the science behind what chemicals it contains, why they might be useful
3. I will try to add things like licorice powder, lemon grass, coriander seed powder, cardamon and see if it tastes better. It it does, can it be consumed as immunity booster.
4. I will try to make a dry mixture / balls of all these ingredients which can be stored in refrigerator and one ball can be added while making tea every morning. This will make it easier to use.
5. I will give my mixture to my friends and family and ask them to use it for few weeks and get feedback from them
6. I also plan to study the use of turmeric-honey with warm milk as immunity booster.
