BSA Sci-Pi: 3. Scaling up the "Scientific Inquiry Through Plants" Project.

The plant sciences offer numerous opportunities for hands-on experiments that engage students' minds and meet national science education standards. The aim of this wrap-up session is to guide directions for scaling up this classroom-tested, standards-based inquiry in the plant sciences. To synthesize the lessons learned from the "Wonder of Seeds" pilot, the breakout groups will reconvene and share input. In addition to discussing directions for refining and scaling-up the "Wonder of Seeds" research topic, during this session we will brainstorm to a develop a series of topics for future "Scientific Inquiry Through Plants" projects.
