News & Events

Can you guess the 10 plants that changed Minnesota? Learn these plants along with fun and educational STEM activities designed for middle and high school students, but easily adapted to younger students at the 10 Plants That Changed Minnesota workshops! Activities range from measuring the value of a tree, the parts of a corn plant, comparing wild rice populations in Minnesota lakes, how plant breeders produce new apples, and the nutritional value of soybeans. All activities meet Minnesota graduation standards. 

There are 12 workshops in 2017, including a workshop at the Southwest Research and Outreach Center on June 20th. For more information, visit the 10 Plants That Changed Minnesota website or contact University of Minnesota professor Dr. Mary Meyer,
