Interacting With Plant Biology at Carnegie
Middle School students from the Children's Day School in San Francisco will spend the afternoon with plants learning about how they shape our past, present, and the future. Students will meet Teosinte, a wild grass thought to be the ancestor of Maize. A hands-on demonstration by Margaret Bezrutczyk will reveal how maize was domesticated. Heike Lindner and Jacob Moe-Lange will use interactive methods to showcase their latest research in plant biology. Middle school students will get to know rare succulents through a highly sought after collection of Haworthia with George Theodoris, a local Haworthia collector. The students will then tour plant research greenhouses, growth chambers, as well as the native plant garden on the Carnegie Institution grounds.
