Hi!

My name is Jennifer.  I was reading on one of your subjects, "why do humans breath cold and hot air?"  I was wondering if there was an experiment I could do for a science fair on that topic???

Thanks!!

Jennifer H.

What do you think?

Temperature probes (thermistors) are used to measure respiration rate

It would be possible to make a respiration rate monitor as a science project,
 although this would largely be an electronics project rather than a biological one.
