Year 7S Investigate!

Year 7 investigate Osmosis and potatoes!
The science investigation used the harvested potatoes from the school growing area that had been planted the previous Spring.
The sliced potatoes were either submerged in salted water or in fresh water and left for 48 hours. The children had to observe the potatoes qualities, such as smell, flexibility and colour and record their findings before the experiment began. Next the children had to predict what the submerged potatoes would be like after the 48 hours were up!
Results to follow!
