Get hands-on with Plant Sciences. See what mycorrhizae, fungi that attach to plant roots, look like through microscopes, and play our mycorrhizae and plant pairing game.

Mycorrhizae are a fungus that attach to plant roots and set up a symbiotic relationship where the plant gives the mycorrhizae food in exchange for nutrients. We will have two microscopes set up at a table with slides where it will be possible to actually see the mycorrhizae attached to plant roots. There will also be an in-person game that two people can play where they help to feed and grow the plant with the help of mycorrhizae.

We also hope to set up a laptop where participants can play a game that shows how mycorrhizae work in the soil.
