Students uncover and experience the mechanism of Mendelian genetics with Wisconsin Fast Plants®. In the Guided Investigation, students germinate the F1 and F2 generations of a population to learn about the inheritance of traits. In the Inquiry Investigation, students must design an investigation to determine the genotype of an unknown sample of Wisconsin Fast Plants® seed. Kit includes enough materials for 8 groups.
