Spend the morning in the field with NC State University researchers discussing the techniques they use to search and test for improvements to crop plants. During the classroom portion of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to try out several plant genetics classroom activities. Each participant will receive a voucher of up to $200 value to purchase supplies from Carolina Biological for teaching plant biology and/or genetics topics in their classroom.
