About Book

Book Description
Shed some light on the physics supporting plant growth in a controlled physical environment. Greenhouses provide for the differential energy needs of plants during their growth cycle. Students design structures that will convert light to heat during germination, and then reconfigure those structures to promote photosynthesis. By comparing the effects of design characteristics on plant growth, students will not only observe the connectinos between plant biology and basic principles in thermodynamics and energy transfer but also realize the importance of rational design.

Card catalog description
Engages high school students in a problem-solving challenge to design & build a physical system that provides an optimal environment for plant growth.
