Let’s Get Down and Dirty! Experiments with Plants

This module uses rapid-cycling Wisconsin Fast Plants as a vehicle for experimentation. These scientifically- developed plants are Brassicas, members of the mustard and cabbage family, and complete their growth cycle in around 40 days. In addition to studying soil-based plant growth and development, students will also explore the cutting-edge plant sciences of hydroponics and aquaponics- growing plants in a soil-free environment, and using live fish to provide nutrients for our plants!
