We had a blast last week at the RDS Science Blast! It was a culmination of months of effort from Ms McBride`s class. They had been looking after five houseplants over the past few months, ensuring that each of them received the same amount of water, and conditions but for one variable which sought to discover if plants have feelings.
One plant was shown happy pictures every day, another subjected to sad pictures. A third plant was regularly complimented, while the fourth plant was subjected to negative comments. The fifth plant was the control plant, being subjected to none of the positive or negative talk or pictures.
