It needs to be firmly attached to the soil and it needs to be sturdy enough to not get easily damaged by trampling: Football-turf grass. In the teaching unit ‘The Green, Green Grass of Dome’ students of secondary school grow their own football grass and do research on which grass species is best for a real football pitch.

Therefore they study the root system, the stems and leaves of the grass plants and examine the role of the stomata.
