Project Description

Did you know that there is a walkway in our school dedicated to Gregor Mendel, the founder of modern genetics? It’s a place most of you walk through everyday – the walkway into school from the Marymount gate! Along this Mendelian stretch, you can observe Mendel’s discoveries in action. Near the end of the path, for example, you can see tall trees and short shrubs with white flowers. These plants actually belong to the same species, generations of selection causing an extraordinary height disparity.
