Week 5 of Planting Science program

– October 20, 2017

It has been 5 weeks of Planting Science program and my online mentorship of high school students teams in their plant investigations.

I really enjoy it and I can't stop being impressed how well everything is organized: all possible questions I might have are in weekly newsletters, mentors' online resources, or in group announcements. And if (if!) I can't find an answer to my question I can always post it on our forums and will get help right away – literally, within 10-15 min. Amazing!

I've been mentoring three research teams so far and I am serving as a liaison for a teacher and her three student teams. Interactions with students are incredibly rewarding, and I feel very lucky to be involved in this program!
