Terrific Scientific!

 

In Science carousel we will be taking part in the monthly experiments that the BBC's Terrific Scientific have set up.

 

The January challenge was to find out if we were non- tasters, tasters or super tasters.  To do this we did some blind tasting, then looked at and counted the number of taste buds present on a small part of our tongues.

These are our results:

 

Type of taster

Number of Children

Percentage for our group

How common in population

Non taster (0-5)

4

17%

25%

Taster

(6-10)

11

46%

50%

Supertaster (11+)

9

37%

25%

 

We have sent our results to the BBC to be collated with all the other school that have taken part.  Take a look at the website (below) to see more details about Terrific Scientific and what we will be up to next month.
