Hi I am 13 and this is a project I had to make for school. The point of this project was to find a problem ans solve it. So I created "Newspaper on Fire." There is a PDF attached to this. It will help understanding the project, and show you the results of the experiment. When I was origianally making this project I was thinking "How can I get newspaper to not burn?" I also thought "How can I get this to be used in cheap house making?"So I thought of the idea of compression. When I was making this project I was actually really surprised how much couuld fit in the wooden frame of my project. In the picture above is how newspaper would burn alone.
What did I make: I mad a newspaper block that didnt continue burning.
How did I make it: It first came from the idea of making cheap housing material that can keep you somewhat worry free. Then I built a prototype of a block out of wood and i used compression.
Where did I make it: I mad this project at home it was for a school science project.
What did I learn: During this I learned many things. One of those is than the more time for the compression the better. I also learned that without the oxygen the newspaper doesnt burn.These are just two of many of the things I learned from this project.
