Event - Rotten Resource Centre

29 January 2010

On Thursday January 29th Class 3 visited the Rotten Resource Centre in Ashby-de-la-Zouche for a Maths Workshop.

Large quantities of green waste from households throughout Leicestershire are collected there and turned into compost. We had a tour of the site which was smelly but very interesting.

Our workshop involved identifying some of the creatures found in a compost bin and using the information to answer some Maths puzzles.
