Students took part in the Tomatophere experiment where they attempted to grow two different types of tomato seeds, ones that had been on board the International Space Station (Group H) and ones that were grown on from earth (Group G). They submitted their results to the Canadian Space Agency. Their contribution helped the CSA in the field of space farming, a critical ingredient in the design of a life support system needed to send humans to other planets. Here is a link to the national results: http://tomatosphere.letstalkscience.ca/ViewResults
This term Div. 7 was learning about force and motion in science. Students learned about motion and the effects that friction has on motion as they designed, built and tested their balloon cars.
The students really enjoyed their time at the Seymour River Salmon Hatchery. They conducted stream surveys which involved them measuring the width of the stream, the water temperature and depth. The students also had an afternoon classroom session where they learned about invertebrates.
Division 7 will be going on a field trip to the Seymour River Fish Hatchery on Thursday, April 27th from 9:00am to 2:00pm. The field trip is free, but we will require parent drivers to help with transportation. Please let Mr. Belliveau know if you can help with driving students. Please also see below a link to the Seymour River Hatchery.
