Academy of Science Plant Sale

Did you know…a study completed by Amanda Read at the Royal College of Agriculture in England found that student attentiveness increased by 70 percent in lecture halls that had plants.

Surely, that effect is not limited to lecture halls (or students), and luckily AOS has you covered – get your very own plant, just in time for finals!

Increase your focus!  Dominate those exams! Faculty, get in front of your grading!

Plus they are just darn cute.

And would make great holiday gifts for your friends and family.
