Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted six more weeks of winter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start planning for spring! In preparation, let’s sow some seeds of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education! Nourish the Future (NTF)—a national initiative developed by science teachers for science teachers—has some upcoming workshops for educators. At NTF workshops, teacher leaders guide participants through inquiry-based, hands-on STEM lessons aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for chemistry, biology and environmental science classes.

HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology - Huntsville, Alabama
This workshop will help MS and HS science teachers understand more about the science of food production and sustainable fuels.
Nourish the Future is made possible through the assistance of the National Corn Growers Association, the nation’s corn farmers, and their state corn checkoff programs. NTF’s mission is to inspire a network of educators to foster critical thinking, connect students to modern agriculture, and provide sound science-based resources that meet teachers’ and students’ needs in the classroom.
