Using models of different tree seeds that Mother Nature had designed to disperse far from the parent tree (in order to have space, more light and more water to grow), Year 3 investigated the design of 8 different seeds.  Each Year 3 scientist, with the help of our Work Experience volunteers, pretended to be the tree dropping its seed.  They measure how far these seeds were able to travel due to their design… Check this out:
