Climate Change Collaboration 2019

dominicaThe 5th grade scientists will be beginning a project with a school in the Commonwealth of Dominica focusing on climate change. The class will be conducting experiments and connecting with a school in Dominica through Skype. Our fabulous family liaison, Daniel Skeritt, and Meghan Russell, FMA's Citysprouts Coordinator, are spearheading this great collaborative project. The focus will be to find out how plants grow through ecosystems and climate changes. Mango seeds are the choice for these experiments. Our 5th grade junior scientists will attempt to grow mango plants in our FMA raised outdoor garden beds while the students in tropical Dominica will be doing the same. Here’s how we think the experiment will work. First, students will eat the delicious mangoes. Next, they will remove as much flesh from the seeds as possible. We’ll then plant the seeds and wait for nature to take its course. The seeds will hopefully sprout and grow! Both classrooms will collect and compare data on the plants as they grow. We’re all super excited to see these junior scientists collaborate and are eagerly waiting the final results.
