Late Summer/early Fall is the time when many trees and plants release their seeds to grow a new generation.  These seeds have some ingenious ways of getting where they need to go. Some tempt animals to eat them, which gives them a free ride and provides fertilizer at the same time! Some parachute from trees, float on the air, or shoot out from seed pods like missiles. Drop in to learn about the ways that seeds travel, then engineer your own traveling seed and see how far it gets!
