Description

The Center for Applied Plant Sciences (CAPS) and the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center are proud to partner with the Franklin Park Conservatory (FPC) for the second year of Green STEM Girls.

Five staff, faculty and graduate students from ABRC, CAPS and the Translational Plant Sciences (TPS) Graduate Program will facilitate a program at the school during the 2019-2020 school year. Each program will include a career talk followed by hands-on plant science activities.
