Researchers in STEAM Education Life Science Education Signature Area: In accordance with the College of Agriculture's mission to have "Basic and applied research with relevance, purpose and responsiveness to societal needs, advancing education and providing experiences for professional growth," a team of researchers conduct professional development workshops for teachers and research the impact of experiential and outreach programs that the life sciences have on human capital. The goal of the project is to determine effective curricula and outreach programs that create engaging contexts for K-16 students to learn life science and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, agriculture, and mathematics (STEAM). Results of 19 different studies were shared at on-campus meetings, professional conferences, and journals. Workshops were conducted for over 200 youth educators, 120 volunteer educators, 25 graduate students in the life sciences, and 21 faculty. ASEC
