Anna presented an overview of her group’s efforts to bring hands-on plant science activities to students from 3 years old to 18 years old. The earlier we get children involved in age-appropriate science activities, the greater is the chance we can get them excited about research. But what science activities are appropriate for different age groups? Anna has been addressing this question, in part, by experimenting with her own children.  As kids age, the complexity of the activities can be increased.  This in- home experimenting has given rise to a suite of bi-lingual hands-on activities that can be accessed through their website plants4kids.org
