Wisconsin Fast Plants Heredity, Inheritance & Variation

Use Wisconsin Fast Plants® to actively engage students in learning about inheritance and variation of traits at elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Carolina offers seed varieties and kits for students to make first-hand observations of the variation of traits in a population and investigate how characteristics of one generation are passed to the next through single- and two-gene inheritance models (Mendelian monohybrid and dihybrid genetics).

Carolina also offers a Wisconsin Fast Plants® Cytoplasmic Inheritance Kit to study the non-Mendelian inheritance-trait transmitted to offspring.Students can use Wisconsin Fast Plants to conduct selection experiments that take just over a month, or observe and quantify inheritance ratios for one or two traits in just 72 hours.
