FC: My Science Experiment | By Shannon

1: Last weekend my friend and I sat down to watch a movie. We popped some popcorn to eat. After eating it all we noticed, at the bottom of the bag, that many of the kernels did not pop.

2: We began to wonder... | We decided to find out what type of popcorn would have the most kernels left that did not pop. | What type of popcorn would have the most kernels that did not pop.

3: The materials we will need to answer this question are different brands of popcorn, a microwave and a chart to keep track of the kernels. | It was kind of old but it worked!

4: In order to make our answer more accurate we decided to pop three bags of each brand of popcorn and then find the average amount of kernels left over for each brand. | Orville Redenbacher

5: We choose four different types of popular microwavable popcorn to test. | ACT II | Pop-Secret | Jolly Time

6: So we popped three bags of each brand of popcorn. | After the first bag we realized how much work this is going to be so we asked our friends for help.

7: We offered them popcorn...

8: So we popped popcorn... | Counted popcorn kernels...

9: And ate lots of popcorn. | We filled in the chart as we counted.

10: We ran into some problems along the way. | Do we count kernels that were somewhat popped? | We decided to count these in because we did not like to eat them.

11: These are the results of our experiment.

12: The average amount of kernels for each brand of popcorn Pop-Secret: 56 Orville: 82 Act II: 36 Jolly Time: 72 (rounded up) The results of our experiment were that Act II left the least amount of kernels while Orville left the most.
