Insight

This clip is about Cape Town in South Africa and the drought they are experiencing.  This drought has left Cape Town with very little water.

 

Facts

  2. On the 4th June the Government was going to turn off the water supply and the people are calling this ‘day zero’.
  3. After ‘day zero’ the Government are going to decrease the water supply to 25 litres per day per person.

Pink Daffodil Report

Written by Doctor Yeat from Goodies Labs

Aim

To reproduce a pink daffodil flower

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle hundreds and thousands on dirt
  2. Put the bulb into the ground
  3. Water with sparkling water regularly

Results

Attempt one – This experiment was a successful but the daffodil turned black after a few days using normal water

Attempt two – Sparkling water was used for the second attempt.  This was successful and the flower stayed pink the autumn season.  It grew huge and it drooped down over Doctor Yeats house just like a bridge.

This pink daffodil flower is a once in life time occurrence
