FYE - Seed Dispersal Lab

Posted by Andy Cunningham on October 21, 2022 at 1:02 PM

Dr. Katharine Covino (English Studies) and Dr. Erin MacNeal Rehrig (Biology and Chemistry) have teamed up to teach this unique STEAM (Science, Technology, English, Art, and Math) FYE which supports students’ academic skills development through learning new and interesting concepts related to plant science, specifically, photosynthesis, pollination, seed dispersal, carnivory, and responses to the environment, while reading and reviewing the YA Lit book, Bloom by Kenneth Oppel. The goal of the course is to draw inspiration and resources from diverse content areas to help students become engaged, curious, and caring members of the university community. In this activity, students are investigating the characteristics of plants that make them successful at seed dispersal while working in teams, solving problems, and applying metacognitive strategies to complete the activity successfully. Here, students perform a seed dispersal experiment wherein seeds are weighed, measured, and reopped from a specific height. The distance of the seed from the drop location data was then recorded.
