The Wisconsin Fast Plants Program was designed to build open education resources and professional learning communities that inspire and support its stated mission: "working with educators and scientists in support of conceptual understanding through science teaching, learning, and research." It's an ambitious goal and this site provides users with a range of information from how to grow fast plants to various activities for the classroom. These Plant Activities can be downloaded by students as a way to explore the world of botany, ecology, and other related fields. Of course visitors will need to look over the How To Grow area which contains detailed information on Growing & Lighting, Flowering, and Seeds & Harvesting. A Grower's Calendar can also be downloaded as a great way to keep track of the growing process.
