How can we create a collection of preserved plants to be investigated from home?
Students have been investigating the names and structures of plants collected near their homes. They created a collection of catalogued dried plants, scientific diagrams identifying main structures and researched the taxonomy of each plant.

I am so happy with this project: this is an opportunity to investigate nature and teach students what I love about science.
Above and Beyond?
I was impressed by how kind and open were the students during this elective. Everyone was eager to reflect on their own work and give valuable suggestions to each other.
Calla, Ilham, Katarina, Emily and Sezer were particularly keen on taking in feedback. They were constantly working on their techniques to press plants or make scientific diagrams. Each time they presented their work, we could see how much hard work they had put in.
