The consequences to man's attempt to master life and death are made evident when, Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, unwittingly creates a "monster" that counteracts man's new control over life and death. Try this fun experiment to create your own little "Frankenstein" Plants ...
