The Eden Project have funding for a new canopy walkway for which they need to develop a canopy plant community, representing the epiphyte community of tropical forests.
Our students will grow epiphytes for the canopy and lead on species selection, methods, monitoring and production management.
Project based learning:
- Biosciences – Research and development – Species selection, fixing methods, culture
- Enterprise – Mass production in-vitro
- Electronics – Creative design, develop, manufacture and supply observation sensors. These to be Arduino based with environmental monitoring, camera and web link communication.
