  • Taking science to school kids: the Slimy Science Creature Challenge! — ALTER-Net: Europe's ecosystem research network
    of the stand was a prize based competition which involved participants rolling up their sleeves and getting stuck into an ecology related scientific challenge Fifty fridge magnets with images of organisms from different trophic levels lay hidden in a large container of green goo made from gellibaff a harmless powder which holds 400 times its own weight in water Contestants had 60 seconds to delve into the slime to save as many creatures from the goo as possible In extra time competitors had to correctly transfer the creatures to the right trophic level i e decomposers primary producers secondary producers secondary consumers and top predators Frantic decision making often led the young scientists to build fantastical food chains involving top predator pandas Accompanying the game was a poster presenting some of the varied work undertaken by CEH staff and a microscope was available enabling children to take a closer look at common organisms found in soils and compost heaps You can see pictures of the event here http cehsciencenews blogspot co uk 2012 11 slimy science creature challenge at html For more information contact Andy Sier Related content NERC Centre for Ecology Hydrology CEH Filed under ALTER Net involvement Check
