Botany Workshop (Online)

Botany is the study of plants. It is a branch of biology. Scientists who work in the field of botany are called botanists.

Botanists usually focus on a specific area. Some discover new kinds of plants, name them, and classify them (group them with similar plants). Other botanists study the structure and form of plants.

Many botanists work as researchers. Some researchers study plant diseases. Others experiment with plant chemicals. Others try to develop plants that are more useful to humans.

Many botanists are interested in conservation. Some investigate the effects of pollution on plants. Others work to protect rare plants.

Botany has something for everyone. And it's so satisfying to watch young ones transfixed by a flower's beauty, or astonished as they watch a plant germinate one centimetre at a time!

To help the youngest generation discover the world of plants we are introducing our new "Botany Wokshop" for two age groups. For them to Explore. Play. Live.
