We will be launching a new plant science programme for secondary education, Key stages 3, 4 and 5 in the Autumn Term 2018.
Meanwhile we can offer a SAPS session on dissection and microscopy of plant vascular tissue for Key Stage 5.
This practical activity gives the opportunity for A level students to develop their skills in using a microscope and graticule, using instruments for dissection and making scientific drawings. Students will also study Tradescantia leaves under the microscope and calculate stomotal density. The session recaps on student knowledge of the plant transport structure and on how to calculate magnification of drawing. Students peer mark their drawings.
The photographs show celery Apium gravelolens var dulce in cross and longitudinal sections.
This session is free to state schools and colleges in Lambeth.
