iStage 3 - Pitch Perfect

Teaching Material of the Month: The impact of coloured light on plant growth

Roots and leaves of football turf are suffering a lot during a match. That is why it is vital to encourage the rapid recovery of the damaged grass: For example by using artificial light. In ‘Pitch Perfect’ students examine in their biology lessons the impact of the wavelength of light on the rate of photosynthesis and the plant growth. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:

This and other teaching units of the brochure 'iStage 3' are available in Czech, English, French, German, Hungarian, Polish and Spanish.
