New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge

Chili Root System

Team: 123

School: School of Dreams Academy

Area of Science: Biology

Proposal: We plan to model chili plant root growth. Our project is important because it can aid chile growers in their crops. Knowledge of the root system can help in the estimation of space, water, and time needed for growth. We plan to grow chili plants in small water tanks in order to see their roots. We will then digitalize them, illustrate them, and use a formula to model future growth of their root system and growth of roots in seedlings.
