Our mission is to bridge the gap between Arabidopsis research and its utilization in K12+ and college classrooms. 

We aim to:

  • Translate many years of research and college-level teaching experiences to further K-12 education
  • Design teaching exercises that will be current, interesting, hands-on and inquiry-driven
  • Partner with schools and other educators to expand the scope of the program
  • Create a platform through which plant researchers, teachers, students and other educational groups are brought together at local and national levels.
