Premodule: Scientific Method and Plant Growth
ExplanationHere students will be growing plants using different environmental conditions of their choosing, i.e. fertilizer/no fertilizer, warm/cold, etc. The stress of the module will be on the scientific method but will familiarize the students with the Arabidopsis plants, and proper techniques used to grow them. It will also act as a springboard into the first module of the project where students will be asked to identify mutations in the plants with which they have become familiar.
