PlantingScience F2 Update
F2 Fellows Applications are Open!
Our NSF-funded research initiative is now well underway! With the help of our colleagues at BSCS and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, the teachers who will participate have been recruited, and we are now reaching out to our early career scientists to recruit the F2 Fellows who will assist them.

“I liked that we didn’t know what was going to happen before we did the experiment. Instead of being taught something and then just doing an experiment to prove it, we made an attempt to find out what would happen ourselves.”
- PlantingScience Student
“At every opportunity, all involved kept reminding my students of the process that real science requires. This helped me to convince my students that they are really doing science - not just play acting until some future date.”
- PlantingScience Teacher
“It is a lot of fun interacting with students from an age group I don’t have the chance to spend a lot of time with. It is a good reminder of where public knowledge of plant science stands, and a great opportunity for me to practice explaining key concepts in a simple and straightforward way.”
