’When do I flower?’ is a short animation for children from 8 to 12 years old. The film introduces us to a plant called Charlie who explains why flowers are important to both plants and people. He tells us about how plants choose when to flower, and that scientists can help make it easier for plants to flower.
This animation was one of the outreach activies of the Epitraits project in which young researchers are trained in epigenetic gene regulation and flowering. Green Life Sciences principal investigators Paul Fransz and Maike Stam participate in Epitraits, the latter as project coordinator.
