IB1 Biology Students Conduct a Plant Population Exercise


On Monday 8 April the IB1 Biology students conducted a plant population exercise at Thermi Dam in order to consolidate classwork including the study of ecosystems and factors affecting population size.  Students collected and manipulated data in situ in order to ensure that a reliable amount of data was collected.  They then went on to process their data using statistical analysis in order to make their conclusions.  Students also investigated a stream habitat and brought water samples back to school for further study.  Everyone worked enthusiastically and demonstrated excellent team work skills throughout the morning.  We now look forward to the Group 4 science project trip this weekend to the Evros delta and Dadia forest!
