We started our last big project for science today. Growing plants in our compost, worm castings and plain dirt.

Earlier this school year I started a worm farm. The purpose was the show the kids how worms help in the decomposition process. As well, I wanted to use the worm soil (castings) for a science project in the Sprig. Well, we’re finally here. NASA does experiments with plant seeds to see how they’ll hold … Continue reading Finally finishing our experiment
It’s been a while since our school has had a science fair. Well we certainly made up for it this week. Continue reading Our first school wide STEAM fair

Later we’ll try to see if we can setup a terrarium with plants, living creatures and aime kind of filtration system. So we have two projects … Continue reading Trying our hand and composting and water testing

They did discolor and get all strange looking, but … Continue reading Being scientists
