ABRC staff are available to visit Central Ohio schools to facilitate hands-on, plant science activities using Arabidopsis. Program staff work with teachers to select activities that complement their curriculum.
ABRC provides on-site tours of our growth facilities and laboratories for school and community groups. Hands-on activities can be coupled with facility tours for a more in-depth plant science experience. ABRC facilities are located on The Ohio State University’s West Campus off of Carmack Road.
ABRC has a number of short, hands-on activities designed to engage learners of all ages in science discovery. These activities are perfect for science festivals and other school or district-wide events.
ABRC offers in-depth teacher workshops designed to guide science teachers through the process of incorporating Arabidopsis into their curriculum. These workshops provide hands-on experience with the experimental protocols included in ABRC’s Greening the Classroom modules.
