Form VI at the Primary Science Fair, RDS
RDS Primary Science Fair – on Saturday 10th January our Form VI pupils enjoyed their day at the RDS exhibiting at the Primary Science Fair.
Their project this year focussed on the growth patterns of stick insects. Several months of observation, looking at different growing conditions and habitats, culminated in the publication of graphs and diagrams illustrating “which food helped stick insects to grow the best?” Three different leaves had been used in the experiment – privet, rose and bramble. One major finding of the research was that privet is definitely not a good food for Indian walking stick insects!
The children really enjoyed welcoming visitors to their stand and answering the many questions that were addressed to them.
