The Botanical Society of America (BSA) recently shared these updates about PlantingScience with AIBS:
Over 200 teams are online now, working on plant investigations with their scientist mentors. This year the Ecological Society of America joined the American Society of Plant Biologists and Botanical Society of America in sponsoring graduate students/post-doctoral researchers to make yearlong mentoring commitments.
New Resources, Partners Profiled
We are excited to announce some new resources on www.plantingscience.org. A new “About” section describes partners and society liaison contacts. You’ll also see a “Partners’ Links” section featuring resources for teaching and learning about plants, and information about science careers.
Other new resources include a downloadable “Plant Investigation Toolkit” with help on topics ranging from “Using Math” to “Plant Care” to “Imaging Technology.” Students, teachers, and mentors now each have a new extensive “Roadmap through an Investigation.”
If you haven’t visited www.plantingscience.org lately, please stop by! Take a look to see how students are progressing with their projects or browse the new resources. Please let us know if you have additions or changes to any of the partner information listed on the website.
