Flower Power!

Educator Resource Kit
Whether it's the food we eat, the medicine we take or just allergies, we're all affected by flowering plants.

Why do plants have flowers? How do flowers develop? What secrets are hidden in their genes, and how could those secrets affect our lives?

Researchers at UNC are working to answer those questions. Science 360: "Flower Power!" explores their research with graphics, animations and audience response activities.

Recommended for ages 8 and older. This Science 360 is supported by the National Science Foundation.

Seasonal schedules

Morehead offers seasonal schedules of Science 360 shows to the public. Follow this link to see the current schedule of public shows at Morehead.

Please note that seasonal schedules change four times each year (spring, summer, fall and holiday), and some shows are not offered during every schedule.

School shows

In addition to its public shows, Morehead offers shows during the week especially for school classes and other field trip groups. These school shows do not appear on the seasonal schedule but do appear on Morehead's daily calendar.

If seats are available, the public may purchase tickets to school shows.

However, school groups with reserved seating have first priority on any remaining seats (for example, if extra chaperons attend), so Morehead cannot guarantee that public seats will be available for school shows.
