Web The Power of Adventures in Gen

Education and outreach

The ISS is committed to the integrating of symbiosis into both pre-college and university life and earth science curriculums. We believe that in order to best understand and work with earth systems, it is essential that students of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds learn about symbiotic systems and their profound impacts. Although the term “symbiosis” includes the full range of “living together” including commensalism, parasitism, and mutualism, the research of ISS members tends to focus on the beneficial interactions that are key to success in natural systems. On this webpage are example curricula shared by our members. If you would like assistance in designing a course on symbiosis, please contact members of the Education Team.
