Science Week - Food Scraps Anyone?

March 2022

#ScienceWeek took place between 11th-20th March and we held a food scrap event for the Root Cause project at Giffnock library, led by the wonderful Briony!

This event showed the children (and parents) how some veggies could be regrown easily from veg scraps, simply on the windowsill at home. Spring onions and leeks were on the menu that day!

To start off, Briony explained greenhouse gases with a cool science experiment using eco balloons before tackling the food scraps.

The children each created a graph which would be used to track the growth progress of the new veggies before carefully putting the ends of their spring onions and leeks into a glass jar. we all had a giggle coming up with the names for our new vegetables! Favourite was definitely…Mr.

Thanks everyone for coming, we look forward to hearing how your veggies get on!
