2012 NSTA National Conference – Indianapolis, IN

The Nutrients for Life Foundation will participate in the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) National Conference on Science Education, held March 29 through April 1 in Indianapolis.  The exhibit booth (booth #1732) will offer all three levels of our plant and soil science curriculum, Nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century.  In addition, information will be available to teachers to improve student understanding of the role plant nutrients have on the environment, crops, food and people’s health.  Extensive student and teacher materials, including complimentary copies of our new sets of flashcards, posters, and DVDs of our virtual classroom, will be distributed.  If you will be at NSTA, please visit our booth or attend one of our workshop sessions:

  • What’s Dirt Got To Do With It?, Friday, March 30, 11 a.m. to noon

Join us to learn some ways to put plants into your life science curriculum.  We will explore properties of soil, soil -plant interactions, plant life cycles, and plant nutrition.

  • Plants in the Classroom, Saturday, March 31, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

How do plants grow?  Plant seeds of success and teach biological concepts through the hands-on activity of growing plants in your classroom.  Standards and inquiry based Nutrients for Life elementary curriculum will be provided.  Each participant will make a mini garden monster to take back to their classroom

Both workshops will be held in room 209 in the Indiana Convention Center
