Abigail Lister, a student at Bloom Carroll Middle School, contacted GrowNextGen for ideas on soybean-related science fair ideas. She decided to do some research on aphid resistance. Andy Michel, Associate Professor of Entomology at OSU sent GMO and non-GMO seeds to her and reviewed her experimental design. To begin her research, Abigail planted the seeds in her grandparents’ garden. She said, “Thank you so much for sending them. I’m really excited to see how they’ll turn out!”

GrowNextGen will keep you posted on Abigail’s progress. We love to encourage students with their research and projects! We’ve got a whole group of leaders standing by to provide support!
