Teaching Material of the Month: The green, green grass of dome

Football-turf grass needs to be firmly attached to the soil and sturdy enough to not get easily damaged by trampling. In this teaching unit students grow their own football grass and research which species is best for a real football pitch. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:
