We might be in the middle of a serious icing here in Kansas City, but that doesn’t mean we’re not prepping our plants for their big day next week. Next Friday, Shannon and I will be presenting at the regional NSTA conference here in Kansas City. We’ll be looking at how the NGSS framework is changing the way we should approach behavior, how plant water management can be a model system for observing adaptive behaviors, ways for students to quantify plant water conservation strategies and how the whole process will lead to student competency in both science practice and biological understanding.
It will be a busy hour for sure, but we’re up for the challenge. Join us at 12:30 p.m. on Friday for a look at how to get your students outside and engaging with the natural world in a meaningful and authentic way. See you there!
