This is a two-day project with two field trips (3 hours each with snack). The first field trip will be to an art gallery in Berkeley where we will meet with an artist who photographs flower pods. Each pod is designed in such a smart way so that it can keep seeds protected and, when the time comes, can spill seeds out for its future offspring for next year. We will collect our own pods on the walk through the neighborhood and produce our own close-up photographs of flower pods. The second trip will be to the UCB Botanical Gardens and we will learn about how carnivorous plants are designed in order to attract and catch their food (flies, small insects, and curious children).
