Post-compulsory education programme - Plant reproduction activity tour and workshop
In this session, students study flowering plants to find out more about sexual and vegetative reproduction.
Students examine and dissect flowers to learn more about their anatomy. These flowers display visible yellow anthers.
Students discover the amazing biodiversity of flowering plants and learn about sexual reproduction. They take part in a tour of flowering plants in our Gardens, or one of our glasshouses, and dissect different flowers to identify the various reproductive parts.

School visits at Kew Gardens support and enhance the curriculum offered in schools, colleges and universities. We aim to give students opportunities that are difficult or impossible to create in the classroom environment.
Lecturers in post-16 education programmes have a variety of objectives in mind when booking our programmes. Although our AS and A2 programmes were designed to meet the requirements of several exam boards, each course is slightly different in content and focus.
Additionally, the variety of diploma programmes and university courses we support is vast. Therefore we are happy to work with you in creating an ideal session for your students. Please let us know in advance (by completing the 'additional information' box on our online booking form) the learning outcomes you require of the session, and we will tailor the session to ensure that these outcomes are met.
