This exiting hands-on workshop explores everything about plants through objects, life plants and artefacts.

Discover how seeds are dispersed, why people need plants and how plants are used by peoples around the world.

After a short introduction to a flowering plant life cycle and seed dispersal, all students will explore three stations. Observe real seeds and find out how they are dispersed; explore a variety of plants and their uses; learn about cultures by discovering plant based artefacts from around the world. We will finish by discussing the role of animals in seed dispersal, why we cannot live without plants and how plants are used in different cultures.
