Elementary & High School Programs
Partnerships for Biological Sciences Education at Iowa State University:
… focus on participants
In the photo on the right, teachers are studying the morphology of the brassica rapa (mustard seed) plant.
This is a great plant to study in an elementary classroom as it is fast growing and students
can observe a full life cycle in a matter of weeks.
The photo shows Dr. Stan Harpole (ISU Dept. of Ecology Evolution and Organismal Biology)
giving participating teachers a field class at a Des Moines elementary school's natural prairie.
The group photo shows all teachers who participated in this summer's
"Plants in Society" workshop for elementary school teachers.
