The germination of seeds is a perennial* subject in science classes around the world.
Seeds are planted somewhere, they germinate, the students look at them.
The hard part is looking at what you are growing.
The point of this project is to provide students, teachers and interested parents with a starting point for investigating the germination of small seeds, in a way that makes them easy to see and record, using reclaimed hardware.
Step 1: Such a Complicated Set of Equipment...
You need an old "jewel" CD case*, some paper towel or tissue, and some seeds (these are poppy seeds we harvested a couple of years ago).
*You'd be amazed how much science can be done with recycled scrap!
