I always thought that for this section, you're supposed to think of a new experiment with the same hypothesis. So another way to test the same variables, basically.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, birds, and fossils, yay for the third time!

That was similar to what I thought, but sometimes it seems difficult to come up with another experiment without it overlapping too much with the applications. Would you come up with experiments that are more simple like the one performed during the event or ones that have more realistic impacts?

That actually makes more sense than what I said; changing IV levels makes a whole new experiment.

I'd say the former. Simpler experiments are easier to think of, and ones with more realistic impacts are likely too complicated and could overlap with the real world applications part.
