Today our classes visited Kuyangani – a place where fish meet. This is part of the school’s STEAM program and our classes began a science experiment in groups.
Our classes were given the provocation of how to turn yabbies blue from Mr Mc Arthy.
We had some interesting hypothesies:
Keerat: Use blue stones and clear water in their environment
Zack: use blue food colouring in their water and food pellets
Jemma: use hard water and clean water. Hard water is water with lots of minerals in it.
Dyhana: to keep them in fresh water so they can go blue and keep the tank vibrant blue
Darcy’s group: change the temperature of the water they live in. Warm the water.
Paul and Steve: pump blue food colouring into the food pellets.
Paris: Use freezing cold water. (Although we found this just puts them to sleep)
