  • PlantingScience F2 Update

    f2_logo_1_w_tagline_copy.jpg

    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 soon we'll be reaching out to our Scientist community to recruit the F2 Fellows who will assist them.  Watch this space for future updates on this opportunity!

     

Testimonials

“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.”
- PlantingScience Mentor
