The Propagator project introduces students to hydraulic systems and their inner workings. Using a few household items and craft materials, students can build a propagator with a basic hydraulic system that will help them care for their seedlings.
At primary level, the set up of a propagator needs to be supported by an adult. For secondary, students could build this themselves, either as part of a design technology or science lesson, or in a STEM Club.
