Seed Scientists (Stage 2)

Be a seed scientist for the day! Students will engage in seed collecting, plant classification and investigate unique seeds – just like our scientists. They will have a tour of the Australian PlantBank to see first-hand where our important seed research is conducted. Students will complete a hands-on discovery to find their own seeds, which they can take home. 

This excursion supports the Living World strand of the Stage 2 NSW K-6 Science and Technology Syllabus and is compatible with the Primary Connection’s unit ‘Plants in Action’.
