ASPB Educational Exhibit Booth at NSTA Annual Meeting

ASPB sponsored an education booth exhibit featuring C-fern and Wisconsin Fast Plants at the National Science Teachers Association's (NSTA's) annual meeting this year in San Diego March 26-30. The meeting was attended by nearly 13,000 outstanding science teachers from across the nation who came to share and discover some of the latest methods and technology in education. Plant science was well represented, as both ASPB and the Botanical Society of America sponsored education booths. As usual, our booth was swamped with teachers who stopped by to share their experiences, find out what we were offering, or chat with the C-fern or the Fast Plant people. Les Hickok, Stephanie Duncan, and Tom Warne represented the C-fern group, and Coe and Paul Williams and Dan Lauffer were there with the Fast Plants. Sheila Blackman, Gary Kuleck, and Mark Staves staffed the ASPB information table.

The C-fern booth emphasized the culturing of C-fern and its usefulness in understanding the life cycle of plants and reproductive behavior. The Fast Plants folks continued to promote their butterfly, Fast Plant interactions, and a new twist on Bottle Biology. Because of the exposure both C-fern and Fast Plants have had in past exhibits, a wise decision was made to focus on more involved interactions rather than reaching out to large crowds. Attendance was still very high, and we achieved our goals of spending more quality time with the booth visitors. Given that more than 2,000 teachers interacted with the C-fern and Fast Plant displays and personnel, significant outreach to the national educational community was achieved. The presentation of this booth at national science teachers conventions is an important component of our outreach program and has planted the seed for long-term K-12 teacher involvement with, and enthusiasm for, teaching plant science in the pre-college curriculum at all levels.

SURF Recipients for 2002

In this second year of the ASPB Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program, eight students have been selected to receive $3,000 grants to conduct independent investigations during the summer of 2002.They will then present their research at the 2003 ASPB annual meeting to be held in Hawaii. The students' mentors receive an additional $500 toward supplies and materials.

There were 29 qualified applicants this year. The reviewers were impressed by the quality of the applicants' projects and the commitment of all the students and their mentors to their ongoing research. This program is co-chaired by Jon Monroe, James Madison University, and Mark Brodl, Trinity University.
