Today The Buds embarked on a research project at Newcastle University. The children met with Dr Maarten where he explained what his job entails as a professor at the University. The Buds were able to become students of their very own research project. Dr Maarten had been out very early preparing for our arrival and brought back some earth for the children to analyse. The children used pippets, petri dishes, tweezers and microscopes to carry out their research. They found some amazing species under the microscope, recording their results as they went. The children were taken around the university and into a real life laboratory. They even went on their own expedition to find natural items of interest.
A special thank you to Paula Turner, Dr Maarten and all involved at Newcastle University for making a truly unforgettable experience for our children.
