Grade 6 & 7 learners from Willowfontein Intermediate School paid a visit to the KZN Museum for formal lessons on Photosynthesis and Biodiversity respectively.
Both lessons included experiments based on the lessons offered. The Grade 6 learners had to test for the presence of starch from different types of foods, whilst the Grade 7 learners had to identify whether different types of plants were either monocots or dicots by looking at the leaf venation, root system and parts of the flower.
