Roots as foragers

In this project, students can experience plants as responsive rather than passive organisms. Roots forage through heterogeneous media and proliferate in portions of the soil that have abundant nutrients. Students can see and measure this growth. Students also get to address issues of experimental design such as the sequence effect.
