Our first tulips have finally emerged! This year we planted approximately 85 bulbs in our Journey North Garden. This is the third year our school has participated in the JN tulip study. It took approximately 5 weeks from the time we planted our bulbs for them to begin to emerge. We’ve had a fairly cool winter thus far in our community, with a few warmer days thrown into the mix.

This year our class has been monitoring the above and below surface temperatures in our JN garden. The January above surface temperature avg. was 40.68F, and the below surface temperature avg. was 37.37F. The February above surface temperature avg. was 47.55F, and the below surface temperature avg. was 40.69F.

Two of our students have successfully designed, built, and programmed a soil monitoring robot that integrates the LEGO NXT system, Vernier probes, and a Texas Instruments graphing calculator. This remote vehicle is currently capable of monitoring both the air and soil temperatures in our research
