What Makes Plants Grow Upward? Light or Gravity?
 Introduction:
As we study plants we notice that plants seem to "know" which way to grow. Germinating seedlings emerge above the soil and grow upward. On a window sill, plants turn toward the light. These observations lead to questions such as: 

Why do plants grow upwards? Why do plants grow towards light? Is the growing direction of a plant a response to light or gravity?

 
 
 Material and  instructions
Design and perform experiments to test the effects of light and gravity on the direction of plant growth.
