NPGI-Funded K-12 Outreach Activities with Broad Potential Impact

Some NPGI-funded principal investigators (PIs) focus on providing outreach or enrichment activities specifically targeted to local K-12 students and/or teachers, but there are also a number of programs in which interested students and teachers from other parts of the state or the country can participate. Examples are listed below.

  • University of Arizona Teacher Internships in Plant Genomics

    • http://biotech.biology.arizona.edu/RET/TIPG.html

    • Seven- to eight-week mentored research internships in plant genomics for teacher interns to develop and share teaching materials using the tools, skills and knowledge they obtain during their research.
