We have recently started working with Advancing Science, a science outreach program from Gettysburg College. They brought in large containers of magnets for us to do many different science experiments. The kids tested which parts of the magnets are strongest, what magnets are attracted to, how to make magnets float in air, and how magnets work in a compass. It was a lot of fun!
When Advancing Science came in on Friday to pick up the magnets, they dropped off a composting bin that shows students how worms compost some garbage into fertilizer. This week we will be doing a lot of experiments using our composting red wiggler worms. Students may bring in egg shells, banana peels, apple cores, or used coffee grounds to feed the worms. (There are several posts below and above with pictures of the students doing science experiments with worms and magnets.)
