Transcript of Investigatory Project in Biology

a. Background of the study Recommendations We used different methods in cooking these chips. We cooked some in the microwave while some in the oven. We only spent 30 seconds – 1 minute cooking the nori sheets in the microwave while 10-15 minutes in the oven. After we took out the chips from the different cooking methods that we did, we noticed that the chips which are from the microwave are still in a straight position while in the chips that are from the oven curled up which is the result that we want and need to see. Both are successful but we recommend cooking it in the oven because we have observed that the nori chips are crispier and tastier because of the people’s comments and their reactions. We also recommend you to brush the nori chips with sesame oil before you eat because it adds to the flavor and to the taste. Lastly we also recommend that before you use other kind of seaweeds, make sure that it does have a liquid inside it or it is not watery because it will not allow you to make successful chips. Group 5
