For your STEM curriculum.

Grades 5-12. How does color effect photosynthesis? Challenge your class to find out as they observe, measure, and compare the growth of normal vs. albino corn seeds. While both contain sufficient food to sprout, at some point the albino sprouts die. Since they lack chlorophyll they cannot carry out photosynthesis, leaving them without necessary nutrition once the initial food supply is depleted. The activity serves as an excellent demonstration of mutation in plants as well as the role of chlorophyll in photosynthesis. Enough materials for a class of 40 students.
