Y6 Growing Microbes on Agar jelly

At WBA we understand that Science experiments promote the development of scientific thinking in pupils. Rather than making them learn the facts, they are encouraged to think and understand the world around them. Science experiments allow pupils to ask questions, probe for answers, conduct investigations, and collect data. They are engaged in the investigative nature of scientific learning.









More fantastic Science lessons with Ms Yin.  Year 6 have been learning about culturing bacteria.  In this experiment, pupils are growing their own microbes on agar jelly.
