Planting Science: Digging Deeper Together – A Model for Collaborative Teacher/Scientist Professional Development (Digging Deeper) is a partnership among the Botanical Society of America, Biological Science Curriculum Study, and American Society of Plant Biologists. The project aims to develop and research the efficacy of a blended professional development model that engages high school science teachers and scientists in learning experiences that provide opportunities for them to examine their own ideas, understandings, and practices in the area of plant science. The overarching goal of the model is to increase student engagement and prepare students to proficiently integrate science content with practices of science. Horizon Research, Inc. serves as the external evaluator for this project.
