About the Group
I would like my students to have contact with professional scientists outside our small rural community. I am developing an elective curriculum around the theme of farm to table. I think model you are using is a great way to give students a more authentic experience of science than I can alone. The pollen unit would fit well with my section on plant structure and function. I know how much the students enjoyed looking at different pollens, to add a more rigorous science background to this would be very exciting.

Course Name and Description
Farm to Table, middle school elective science class
Science background and language skills
I have small classes of motivated students. They have had very little hands on experience, but are very willing to try things.
My classes meet on alternate days. I was a medical researcher, reearch I am familiar with, plants not so much!. The school district is very small but will be very supportive of anything we want to try.
