One of the main goals of the UF Ag-STEM lab is to help re-connect what have become separate, siloed disciplines: science and agriculture. I have a research publication out about the potential to do that in science centers:
I was also interviewed a couple of times about the associated UF press release:
Agritalk Radio (link is to a podcast from a local station. Agritalk.com is the show’s page)
It’s funny, I thought this would be just one of those pretty obvious results (and I think it was), but it turned out to be pretty important. Sometimes we beat ourselves up trying to do massively innovative things, when there is often still room for some fundamental data collection and analysis.
Thank goodness, too, for great little journals that will publish these sorts of things!
