Seed to STEM Workshops
Kansas Corn hosts two workshops in the summer for Kansas high school and middle school science teachers. During the workshop each teacher will practice labs that they can used in the classroom to help students learn the role agriculture plays in science. These labs can be found on our 6-12 lab units page. Teachers can use the labs at any time regardless if they have attended the workshop.
The workshop includes a farm and field visit, an industry dinner and a field trip to an ethanol plant. In addition every teacher will receive $500 worth of free lab resources, plus all on-site expenses are paid. Graduate credit will also be available at a cost to the participant. New workshop dates are announced around January 1st.
Seed to STEM 2.0
Past Seed to STEM participants are encouraged to attend our Seed to STEM 2.0 summer workshops. Each participant will practice 8-12 new labs, attend an industry dinner and collaborate with other teachers about their experiences using Seed to STEM labs in the classroom. In addition every teacher will receive $500 worth of free lab resources, plus all on-site expenses are paid. Graduate credit will also be available at a cost to the participant. There will be a middle school and high school track. Only 20 teachers will be selected per track. New workshop dates are announced in January.
