Do you know soil holds water? In fact, a space the size of a standard football pitch can hold up to an Olympic swimming pool’s worth of water; that’s a lot! Some soils are better than others though… and how humans treat our soil makes a big difference. Come and do our experiment and pour water all over our ‘soils’; can you tell our scientists what will happen next?
wE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Let us know what you found in your experiment!
