I plan to do my EE on biology HL but after I formulated a few plausible research questions, they were all shot down by my teacher for either being too easy or too overdone :( does anyone have any ideas they could share? I really wanna do something related to bacteria because I wish to take medicine in uni...

Please help meeee ><

Side note: My school has a strict no animal policy & no human experiments...

Just finished my Bio EE, it was about bacterial resistance to essential oils. I got A predicted, however I’m planning to do biomedicine not med. mentioning my EE in my personal statement got me into all of my choices accept one that didn’t yet respond.. So I would say investigating the impact of any natural antibacterials or artificials: like soaps or sanitizers of different brand or variable bacteria is a good idea. U can google what is the Kirby-Bauer procedure and decide from then which particular substances and bacteria u want to investigate. And of course experiment is better than research data... I must also say that this EE took me way more than 40 hours, stress and anxiety. So do it only if u are really determined and confident!

Thank you! @Basalay_s I was going to do the effect of different antibacterial solutions (ethanol, bleach etc) on the growth and reproduction of bacteria but my teacher wouldn’t let me do it because it’s too overdone :( Idek what she means by that... & yeah definitely I will be doing experiments because that’s actually the aspect of science I’m interested in ahaha.

She meant that this experiment has been done too many times, so u will have to thing of some other substances... the idea with essential oils was quite original but idk if u can repeat it now
