Genius Hour ~ Week of May 15 - May 21

I plan on starting trials next week, I would have started earlier but who knew how long it would take pig skin to defrost?
I spent most of this week researching. The pig skin should break down just like human skin/muscle. I really hope that this produces interesting results, so I can wrap up my weird trifecta of science projects (decomp, bone dissolving, acid/bases baths).

Genius Hour ~ Week of May 8 - May 14

This week was spent trying to figure out what to do for genius hour. The best idea that I have, since all my others didn't pan out (organ decellularization was too expensive and different ways of cleaning blood through crime scene cleaning ways didn't exist [they just remove the affected area all together]), is to do something similar to what I did for my freshman year science project: do different situations effect the decomposition pig skin?
I have the idea of doing water this time, different treatments (pond water vs ocean water vs control [distilled tap water]).
