Our Garbage Experiment
The garbage experiment is that we put garbage that we found into a jar and seal it and leave it for one week.
We are doing it because we have learned about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is garbage that is in the middle off the ocean that is mainly plastic. Its about the 2x the size of Texas. We wanted to see what our own garbage that we found in our school grounds would be like in a week and if it would affect the water.
Some things that happened was the garbage had a horrible smell -- one group's smelt like rotten eggs and dead fish. Another's was that pop cans got this pink holes on it that felt like bumps also some people's garbage smelt like candy and didn't stink.
The next step we have decided to take, is to leave the garbage for 2 more weeks to see if anything has changed in that time.
