Battle of the Plants – Register Now

BattlePlantsIMageFrom 3 June 2014 students from science classes around Australia will be competing against the APPF scientists at the High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre (HRPPC) in an attempt to outgrow and outsmart them. Science students from participating classes will each be given a plant growing kit and a set of minimum growth conditions. Then it is up to the students in collaboration with their teachers to conduct a plant growth experiment and attempt to grow the biggest, greenest Brachypodium plant in Australia. The student who grows the biggest, greenest plant and in the process grows a plant bigger than our scientists will win a major prize for themselves and their school. Registrations are now open for secondary school teachers to register their class. Info
