Fast Plants - Seed to Seed in 40 days!With a complete life cycle in just days 40 days, Fast Plants are used around the world as a model organism for researching and teaching plant sciences and biology.

From kindergarden through college, teachers, scientists, and students research and explore the world of plants using Fast Plants. Note: Though the Bottle Biology Program officially closed its doors ininstructional materials are still being produced and distributed by the Fast Plants staff.

Below you will find a sample of Bottle Biology activities found in the manual and available from the Wisconsin Fast Plants Program.

"Fast plants" are a type of fast-growing mustard plant (Brassica rapa) that grows easily under laboratory conditions. Each group of students will be asked design their own experiment using these "fast plants." Please get together with other students (ideal group size = 4).

Bottle Biology projects encourage creative ways to grow plants, such as the bottle growing system, to promote science as a tool everyone can use to explore the world. This guest blog is provided by Bottle Biologist Joel Cryer. Brassica Components.

Your Brassica plants will need a place to grow undisturbed from seed to do this, you’ll need the following: Bottle Growing System – to sprout and grow the plants; Light House – to provide continuous high-quality light and a source of heat; Pieris Components.

Pieris will need different components for different stages in its life cycle. The acidity of solutions is measured using the pH scale, which extends from 1 to The pH of a solution is defined as the negative of the logarithm of the hydrogen-ion concentra­tion (-log [H+]).

For example, [H+] in pure water is x 10 The pH of pure water is therefore -log ( x 10 -7), or 7. W IS C 0 N SIN Wisconsin Fast Plants Now entering its tenth year, WFP aims to bring inquiry-based plant biology into school and college classrooms.

Introduction. Rapid cycling Brassica rapa (RCBr), also known as Fast Plants, are a widely used model organism in biology education. They were developed by selection of B. rapa for the traits of short time to flowering, rapid seed maturation, lack of seed dormancy, petite growth habit, and high female fertility (Williams and Hill, ).The result is a plant with a 7-week generation time that Cited by: 3.The Wisconsin Fast Plants Program works to build open education resources that support conceptual understanding through science teaching, learning, and research using Wisconsin Fast Plants as a Views:   The Wisconsin Fast Plants Program works to build open education resources that support conceptual understanding through science teaching, learning, and research using Wisconsin Fast Plants as a.
