Get your fill on the science craze! Project PLANTS explores agriculture and horticulture sciences all year round with Science Saturdays—a Saturday morning science workshop to explore science concepts with hands-on projects and experiments! Join us to dive into topics such as water quality, photosynthesis, plant chemistry, animal science, local agriculture and more! Workshops are open to Project PLANTS members and middle school students.

New Day DNA

What does it mean to mess with DNA? Come learn about how we select for traits in plants through traditional breeding, and discover how genetic modification works in horticulture. Begin a critical discussion on broad implications of plant genetics,and embark on a new knowledge of how manipulation of genes can have a wide range of impact.
