Join the Master Plant Science Team!

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2016-2017 Master Plant Science Team.

The application deadline for this year has now passed. Please check again during the summer of 2017!


Are you a graduate student or post-doctoral researcher interested in a chance to get involved and trained in K-12 outreach?  Would you like to mentor student research teams, without ever leaving your desk?  Do you have the time to commit to mentor 2-3 teams in BOTH the Fall and Spring PlantingScience Sessions?   

Discover the rewards: 

  • Free annual society membership
  • Reduced annual meeting fees
  • T-shirt
  • Support of a mentor cohort

 What are the expectations of the Master Plant Science Team members?

  • One year commitment (~2 hours per week time commitment when sessions are active)
  • Mentor 2-3 teams in fall and spring
  • Communicate ~3 times per week when teams are active
  • Connect with classroom teacher as appropriate
  • Provide feedback to staff and mentor team
  • Potentially serve as a liaison for one teacher

Interested members of the Master Plant Science Team may also participate in field-testing of new curricular modules, shadowing student experiments, communicating with teachers and module authors, and providing feedback on module materials and development.

Sponsorship is provided by the following partner societies:

  • Botanical Society of America sponsors graduate students and post-doctoral researchers.  Download BSA brochure
  • American Society of Plant Biologists sponsors graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. Download ASPB brochure
  • Canadian Botanical Association/L'Association Botanique du Canada sponsors graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. Download CBA-ABC brochure
  • Ecological Society of America sponsors graduate students only.  Download ESA brochure

Please be prepared to indicate which Society you’d like to sponsor you and to provide:

  • Your complete contact information
  • A paragraph describing your interests/reasons for wanting to join the mentoring team
  • A brief list of your previous mentoring and outreach experience
  • A 3-5 sentence response to the example student posting below by a high school team about their plant investigation.  What probing questions or comments from you as an online mentor might help guide the team to think critically about their research ideas?

Example of a student project:

 

Join today to share botany with tomorrow's scientists and informed citizens.
