On Saturday, we went shopping for supplies for a plant experiment Marcus wants to conduct. He wants to test how two different plants will grow in a magnetic field.
In the garden center there were turtles so of course we had to check them out.
Our shopping cart included all of the necessary supplies: potting mix, 4 pots, 2 seed packets (one of marigolds and the other of radish), 4 long metal screws and neodymium magnets (8 altogether).
At home, Marcus set up his experiment. He laid all the supplies out and prepared each pot one-at-a-time.
For the magnet pots, he “planted” two magnets in the soil, and placed two more magnets on the screws, across from each other. This creates a magnetic field for the plants.
Thus the experiment has begun. Marcus will keep track of the amounts of water and sunlight as well as each plants growth in a record book. ♥ Stay tuned for updates and results in the weeks to come.
