Dear Science Space Friends,
Sustainability At Home | Virtual Science Space
This week, we are looking at BACKYARD SCIENCE. At Science Space, when we talk about backyard science, it is not only in our own physical backyard but in general the living world around us.
Flower Pressing for Beginners – Virtual Science Space
Botanists have used flower pressing for hundreds of years. Create your own mini flower press to preserve flowers, leaves and buds from around your playground or backyard. Did you know a botanist is a scientist who studies flowers and plants? As a budding botanist yourself, it is important to collect as much information (or ‘data’) about your samples. This will help with accurate identification in the future and assist scientists with research into where particular plants are found over time.
