Collaboration on the part of teachers, students, and scientists is what PlantingScience is all about.
We would love for you to join us and help support plant-focused education in 6th-12th grade classrooms!
PlantingScience serves teachers who teach middle school, high school, or undergraduate life science courses where plant-focused topics are (or could be) part of the course content. There is no charge to participate! To find out more, click the link below:
PlantingScience mentors are plant-focused research scientists from all stages of research, from later undergrad through retired/emeritus. We welcome mentors from academia, industry, and government research institutions! To find out more about what's involved, click below:
