I would like to investigate the use of biogas plants as an alternative source for home heating/cooking. I would look at their current use in India and how they are designed. Also what is the best type of “fuel” to put into these plants that basically produce methane gas that is piped into the home.
A second project Idea would be to investigate the plant and animal species that are present in North America to see if there are any native species remaining or if our current biota is all introduced from other places, in a sense all of the species would be invasive. Most of our crops that we plant in the U.S. are not native to this land and were developed some where else and then introduced into this continent. Also see how species ranges/distributionshave changed over time given the interactions between humans.
