What colours are hidden in the leaves of plants? Why are the interactions between plants and insects so important? What are microalgae and how can they be used? Prepare your own seed paper and isolate DNA from berries. We invite you to a day filled with different activities around plants and plant research. Pass by and get fascinated by the world of plants!

On the 18th of May, the Fascination of Plants Day is arranged for the fifth time in Umeå. It will take place this year in Kafé Fika at Väven. Plant scientists will present their research in short lectures, you can see their favourite research plants and you can experiment yourself.

The Fascination of Plants Day is an international event. More than 500 scientific institutions, universities, botanical gardens in more than 50 countries will open their doors to visitors. The goal is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about plant science.
