Congratulations to all of the schools that returned the record sheets and samples (if required). Your data is incredibly important!
I hope you all had fun with the 2017 project! Wilson Primary School appeared to!
This year we had 53 samples sent in, of which only 6 were successfully tested. Unfortunately, this is much lower than previous years however plenty of discussion can occur in the classroom.
First lets consider why not all of the samples were viable… many samples simply did not survive the transportation as they were sampled then a couple days later sent to the university, or delayed over the weekend at the post office, or simply got too hot during the transportation. Can you think of some other reasons?
The data also provides us with many discussion point, if you want to read more please check our results page.
