Education and Outreach

 

Our science museum exhibit "Mysteries of an Ancient Grain" travels around the US. See a photo gallery, more information, and its current location and travel schedule.

We have resources especially for teachers, including a Teacher Friendly Guide to the Evolution of Maize.

There are many possible careers in science. You could work in a laboratory, field or greenhouse - or spend your day writing computer programs! Find out more, and read biographies of the people working on our project to find out why they love their job or how they became a scientist.

Our resources for the general public include a traveling science museum exhibit, videos, and information on careers in science.

Barbara McClintock was a pioneer in maize genetics, but there are many other important women scientists. Although women are still underrepresented in science, they are well-represented in our group. Find out more about women in science, including biographies of our women scientists.

Find out more about our publicly available data, scientific publications, videos from a GBS workshop and other resources for scientists.
