Responding to the Rainbow: Light and Plant Development
Audience: High School
Description: We visit the classroom and describe how plants respond to light, an important factor in their environment. Aside from its role in photosynthesis, light drives many plant decisions. Different colors and intensities play a critical role. We give a presentation about the different colors and what they do, and leave behind LED light sources that the students can use to explore the principles presented. The in-class lab can explore concepts in plant physiology, genetics, and plant development. This is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
