  • Science for Educators Lifelong Learning Community
    Christine E Haney Douglass Program Coordinator chaney3@unl.edu University of Nebraska Lincoln
    Welcome! We have created this online learning community to offer a place for science teachers who are current graduate students, recent graduates and/or active professionals to share their ideas, lesson plans, publications and questions with others who are working to teach science. PLEASE JOIN THE SELF_PACED COURSES IN THE LEFT HAND MENU (free to join) TO SEE NEW JOB, GRANT & INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. This was the best way we could manage the wealth of information. Please use this space to explore and share and submit only items you are comfortable with others using for free.  This location is meant to further the knowledge and experience of teaching science by learning, adjusting and adapting to what others before you have contributed. Feel free to contact us at any time to make suggestions or ask questions. We are so happy you have joined us and wish you much luck as you progress in your own professional knowledge! Kind Regards, Master of Applied Science, Science for Educators specialization team University of Nebraska Lincoln

  • Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network
    Brandy VanDeWalle bvandewalle2@unl.edu
    Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network         This site is designed to serve as a clearinghouse of lesson plans and other materials useful for teaching 4-H and FFA youth about crop and soil sciences.  Check out this site for information to use in your classroom, workshops, or 4-H meetings.        As youth become less connected with agriculture, it is essential to teach them about agriculture. A series of workshops, called Crop Science Investigation or CSI was created to help spark the interest of youth to learn about crops and plants. Dig into some interesting facts about Nebraska crops. Learn how crops grow and factors that affect them. Learn about exciting career opportunities related to crop and plant science. The University of Nebraska offers great majors for anyone interested in anything plants!  Check it out!
