Looking for a life science STEM project involving plants? You found it! With this project, students will choose a form of plant tropism and design a contraption that houses a live lima bean or string bean sprout with the purpose of demonstrating that form of tropism.
Students must already have knowledge of the forms of tropism prior to completing this STEM challenge. Their design should present a growth challenge to the plant through the seed’s placement within the contraption, so that the tropism is evident once it begins to grow.
Contraptions can only be made from objects listed on the project information sheet, and their plant must remain living throughout the course of the project.
