Dragonfly Detectives

Spring Session: That’s a Wrap!

Leave a comment

On the last day of the 6 week Dragonfly Detectives program, students compiled all of the data they had collected to determine which weather factors had the greatest impact on dragonfly flight.  They worked hard and did a great job analyzing the information to make sense of it all, determining that most of their hypotheses were correct; dragonflies do indeed prefer sunny warm weather with light winds and no rain. Students wrote out hypotheses, methods, conclusions, created graphs and graphics bringing it all together in a scientific poster that will be displayed at BugFest at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences on September 17!  Spring participants were all homeschool students from Harnett, Johnston, Wake and Franklin counties.
