Year 13 are continuing with their environmental health science topic. The aim is to help the students to gain some new science knowledge, as well as to consider environmental issues.
One recent unit has seen the students research eutrophication. This refers to the excessive richness of nutrients in natural water which can impact the plant growth.
Our research has looked at how fertiliser can affect the pond life underwater. This stops sunlight and leads to bacteria spreading. The students have looked at how this can then harm sea life.
Written work for this unit has involved the Year 13 students sequencing these events in their science book. They have written a short description to explain what is taking place.
