Missouri Citizen Science Project
Invasive Honeysuckle Project
STOM is excited to announce a new large scale citizen science project! We teach about invasive species all the time but rarely do we get such an opportunity to make a difference.
STOM, along with the help of many organizations, has developed the MO Honeysuckle removal project with the goal to remove one million of the plants in 2016. These plants are choking out our natural forests at a very rapid rate.
Check out the Honeysuckle Project page to learn how to get you and/or your students involved.
The deadline to submit a proposal to present at #STOM2017 has been extended to April 30, 2017! Click here to submit a proposal!

Missouri Learning Standards
As we begin 2017, I am excited with the trend that is happening in science education in the state of Missouri. As an organization, STOM has a lot to celebrate. All three of our goals for the new science standards were met with the adoption of the Missouri Learning Standards by the Missouri Board of Education.
STOM continues to offer free membership for 2017. Pass the good news along to your colleagues and encourage them to join. I look forward to seeing you at the 2017 STOM Conference on October 13th and 14th in Columbia, Missouri.
