Hairy Halloween Pumpkins

Students in Ms Colum’s Science Class carved pumpkins last week and noticed a couple of days later that furry white and black growths had begun growing inside the pumpkins. As, scientists, the first year students looked a bit closer at the growths under the microscope where they could identify parts of the fungus such as stolons, sporangiophores and spores. As students want to be as sustainable as possible, the pumpkins were fed to the birds in our wildlife area at the back of the school.
