Help students build a deep understanding of phenology and climate change by participating in Phenology Investigations in Minnesota Schools (PIMS). This year-long professional development experience provides curricula, resources, and activities to support standards-based instruction throughout the academic year in grade 6-12 science and agriculture classrooms. PIMS workshops, which are jointly led by phenology experts and trained lead teachers, have a special emphasis on engaging teachers in Greater Minnesota.

Pending funding approval by Minnesota Legislature in May 2024

Funding for this project was provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR).
