At the Carnegie Institution for Science under the Department of Plant Biology, we believe in the importance of educating the general public about plant science. To accomplish this goal, individuals from a number of our labs have come together to form teams, each with the united vision of broadening and strengthening public knowledge of plant biology. From teaching middle school students to hosting screenings of popular science-related movies, we aim to engage with people of all ages and backgrounds, sparking interests and raising awareness of crucial plant science-related topics.
