Thousands of pupils enjoyed getting their hands dirty on Wednesday 20th of October as part of the Spring Bulbs for Schools - climate change investigation.
Many were really excited to plant their 'baby' bulbs which they will nurture until next spring. Next week, the schools will begin to gather weather records and complete challenges set by Professor Plant to work towards their Super Scientist Certificates.
This project is not only an excellent opportunity for learning outside the classroom but also a great way for Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales to share scientific knowledge and resources with schools all across Wales.
5.4% of Welsh primary schools are taking part this year, that’s 2,681 pupils from 71 schools across Wales.
60% of the schools are more than 30 miles away from National Museum Cardiff, which is hosting the investigation.
42% of the schools are based in North Wales, 33.8% in South East Wales, 16.9% in West Wales and 8.4% from Mid Wales.
38% are in communities 1st areas and 40% are Welsh speaking or bilingual.
37% are in the 1st year of the project whilst 63% have been doing the project for two years or more.
