On June 12, Newcastle Elementary School held a science symposium that featured plant experiments designed and executed by 5th grade students. Projects ranged from acid rain tests to space constraints to the impact of pests. Prior to the symposium, groups of students gathered data, graphed results, and researched the real world applications of their findings.
