Come join us to explore teaching and learning with plant investigative cases!

PlantIT Summer Institute for Teachers will be July 12-23, 2010.

This summer we will focus on cotton to learn about bioinformatics and searching databases for genes of interest such as drought tolerance and fiber color, and further focus on fiber to discover how microscopic and chemical testing answers textile forensics.   Exploring these cases together introduces participants to investigative case-based teaching and learning, which participants then build upon by collaboratively developing and testing out case materials.

Stipends and allowances for 12 days in residence at Texas A&M University.  Space is limited to 16 high school and middle school teachers.

Apply by April 9, 2010.

We hope to see this summer!
