To better serve our community during this time of physical distancing, outreach professionals from across STEM disciplines at Ohio State have put together a curated list of our favorite at-home and virtual learning opportunities. Check out our list of Recommended Activities to Explore @ Home to find experiences to fit your STEM interests!
In addition to our education kits, which include seeds to grow Arabidopsis in your classroom, ABRC is developing a set of virtual resources to support online learning. Visit our virtual resources page for more information on virtual resources for teachers, students and science enthusiasts.
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.
