Can Ice Preserve Once-living Things? Cryogenic Roses-Chemistry
Background Research • Cryogenic means the science of producing and studying low-temperature environments. • Greek word “kryos” mean cold. • Freezing roses which is once-living. • Can ice preserve once-living things? • Observing the characteristics of the frozen and not frozen rose. • It will have a control group and a experimental group.

Introduction and Background • Paragraph giving: • The importance of this experiment is because back during ice age, mammoths were able to be preserved. What about plants? • The purpose of this experiment is to determine whether once living things can be perfectly preserved • I predict that the roses can be preserved because animals were able to be preserved as in what scientists had discovered.
Materials and Equipment five rose buds beginning to bloom Four plastic bowls Measuring cup Water Paper and pen/pencil Camera • Procedures: • Fill the four plastic bowls with the amount of water given. • Observe the five rose buds and record any differences in the fragrance, texture, appearance, and color. • Place one rose bud in each bowl of water and then put them in the freezer, keeping one rose bud at room temperature for a control. Observe the control daily and record all observations. • After one week, allow one rose bud to thaw and observe, comparing it to the control and to the observations made before freezing. Place the thawed rose bud with the control. • Repeat this procedure the next week with another frozen rose. Do this weekly until all roses have been thawed and observed.
Data Analysis • The graph shows that the experimental group has not changed its characteristics in any way. • In the control group, the changes showed rapidly in appearance, texture, fragrance and color. • Both graphs show many differences with experimenting with the roses.
Conclusion • My purpose on this experiment is to answer my question about preserving living things. • I found that you can preserve once living things with ice in a below 32 degrees area. • Can ice preserve once living things? Yes, yes it can. • The charts and the information that was provided helped me have a positive outcome toward my hypothesis. • You can go into more investigating if it can preserve more than just a plant with this type of experiment.
