MULTI-MEDIA PLANT SCIENCE: Video, Radio & Podcasts

EDUCATION OUTREACH


The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program is designed to assist promising undergraduate students in conducting meaningful research in plant biology early in their college careers. Ideally, students should conduct their SURF-funded research the summer following their second year. Exceptionally well-prepared first-year students and third-year students who provide evidence of a strong commitment to plant biology will also be considered. Students must work with a mentor who is an ASPB member. All students (including any following non-traditional calendars or in the Southern Hemisphere) will complete their SURF research for presentation at the next year's ASPB annual meeting.


CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Registry of Undergraduate Researchers
Registry of Undergraduate Researchers
facilitates matchmaking between undergraduates who have research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, with graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research.


What Jobs do Biologists Have?
A great description of career choices for biologists from the American Institute of Biological Sciences.


Master Plant Science Team Mentoring
ASPB supports incentives for 5 graduate students to serve on the 2008-2009 Master Plant Science Team of PlantingScience, an on-line inquiry-based student mentoring program.

Primarily Undergraduate Institutions Research
This page provides information for Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUI) doing plant biology research. Listings of research programs, funding resources and seminar speakers are all available here.


How to Make a Great Poster
Learn the basics of making a great research poster. Making a great poster can be fun and is certainly a challenge! Here are some ideas about how to get the most attention for your efforts.

MULTI-MEDIA PLANT SCIENCE: Video, Radio & Podcasts

A Contest for Plant Biology Videos on YouTube
This open competition is for the best new plant biology videos published on YouTube. Created by ASPB Grant Award Program winner Dan Cosgrove, the contest aims (a) to encourage budding film makers and other creative individuals to produce informative and entertaining plant biology videos, (b) to increase the availability and range of short videos for use by educators, (c) to increase exposure of the public, particularly younger members of society, to plant biology, and (d) to establish a simple webpage with links to recommended videos.

Genomics Digital Lab (GDL) Project
This first place winner in the NSF 2008 Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge offers a series of curriculum-aligned and integrated games, modules, and interactive simulations covering an array of topics in biology. GDL is a continually expanding interactive on-line environment where users experience the world of biology through discovery-based learning. GDL was created in conjunction with ASPB member and GAP winner David Salt’s Genomics eXplorer, an interactive walk-through plant cell.


Secrets of Plant Genomes Revealed
What causes crazy corn mutations? Is GM food safe? Do genomes come in more than one size? This hip site helps you learn the answers to these questions and many more as you watch videos and see what scientists have to say about plant genomes.


Plants-In-Motion
Visit this site to enjoy beautiful and technically accurate images of the varied motions plants make during their life-cycle. This clever plant biology resource was created by ASPB member Roger Hangarter. Also visit Roger’s sLowlife page for another close up view of plants.


'The Plant Detective' Radio Show
This 90-second radio show features the world-wide adventures of Detective Flora Delaterra as she searches for specific medicinal plants and explains their benefits, risks and efficacy. Developed by ASPB member Beth Judy with partial funding from the ASPB Education Foundation, this appealing resource turns 'hard science' into 'easy listening'. Podcasts available soon!


MicrobeWorld
MicrobeWorld Radio is an educational outreach initiative that revolves around a daily, 90-second radio series designed to increase public understanding and appreciation of the vital role microbes play on our planet and to promote the science of microbiology. Search the site's archives or download podcasts of the show, including the plant science-oriented episodes written by ASPB member David Stern and co-sponsored by the ASPB Education Foundation.


A Moment of Science (AMOS)
AMOS offers engaging two-minute radio programs full of cool facts about important science concepts. While the program covers a broad array of topics across the sciences, it is easy to search the site's list of audio files to find plant science segments.


EDUCATION OUTREACH

Fostering Change in Undergraduate Biology Education – What Can ASPB Do?
Find out how YOU can get involved in the shared vision that scientists from NSF, ASPB. AIBS, and AAAS have developed to improve undergraduate education by incorporating Concept Literacy, Active & Experiential Learning, and Broad Career Horizons.


How to be a Great ASPB Outreach Volunteer
Each year the Education Committee prepares and presents dynamic, interactive plant science booths at a variety of outreach venues. ASPB members who are passionate about plant science education voluntarily staff the booths. Click & learn how YOU can volunteer as an ASPB representative at a booth this year.


What Can You Do to Improve STEM Instruction and Learning?
Read Ready, Set Science! Putting Research to Work in K-8 Classrooms (RSS), a user-friendly derivative of NRC's echnical tome Taking Science to School (TSS). Click to learn about the eight chapters and four appendixes filled with validated teaching techniques and sample teaching vignettes designed to clarify the four most effective strands of science instruction.



Journal of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Education
This is a peer-reviewed journal written by and for educators in the life sciences, natural resources, and agriculture disciplines. The American Society of Agronomy publishes JNRLSE once a year in printed format and/or CD-ROM, and continuously in electronic format for educators in extension, university, industry, administration, and grades K-16.


History's Harvest: Where Food Comes From Film
History's Harvest, a documentary film produced by the ASPB Education Foundation, presents a sweeping view of 10,000 years of agricultural history, shown against a backdrop of spectacular footage from locations in India, Mexico, the United States and Britain. The film is fast-paced, informative, and visually engaging. It is also presented in a way which the general public will relate and understand. History's Harvest: Where the Food Comes From is available in VHS and DVD formats.


BROCHURES:

Understanding the Plant Immune System
NSF-funded research is greatly expanding our basic knowledge of the plant immune system. This knowledge is enabling development of new disease-resistant crop varieties that will require far fewer pesticide applications and provide higher yield. This pamphlet was prepared by Roger Innes and Pam Ronald for ASPB.


Careers in Plant Biology
Plant biology offers an individual with a pioneering spirit the opportunity to experience the thrill of discovery. Find out more about careers in plant biology through this brochure.
