Leaving Cert Ag Science Experiments - Watch them all on video

As part of the Ag Science practical exam you will be required to write up and show an understanfding of a series of experiments covered by your teacher. Question four on the Leaving Certificate Ag Science gives you a choice of four experiments of which you must write up two. Below are some of the main experiments done on video by PDST. This can be a really helpful way to remind yourself of the steps involved.
