PlantingScience STAR Project

By Dr. Rose Davidson, STEM Coordinator
Congratulations to the Herb Your Enthusiasm team, comprised of Maggie Hannick, Marissa Ledbetter, Emily Giannotti and Rachel O’Reilly, which was selected as a STAR project by PlantingScience. This team carried out research on the effect of the wavelength of light on the starch levels in the leaves of parsley plants after photosynthesis.
PlantingScience selects STAR projects from participating schools around the world and hosts them to their gallery which is available here.
PlantingScience focuses on student teams doing real science while collaborating online with scientist mentors.
