STEMbite: Seed Dispersal

Dandelion and maple tree seeds are blown and thrown to show two methods of seed dispersal. The narrator videotapes from his vantage point, his hands visible, but never his face. He examines helicopter blades as a human imitation of maple seeds. He eats and apple and deposits one of its seeds into the toilet as he explains how seeds can be dispersed by traveling animals. Elementary science classes would both enjoy and benefit from this homemade video when studying the plant life cycle. Have them research other methods of seed dispersal or other products humans have developed that imitate nature's ways.
