Mycology in local high school classrooms

Fungi are often the forgotten Kingdom when it comes to high school classrooms in the United States. A few teaching modules exist that slyly allow teachers to hit standards while getting to talk about fungi, but they are adopted by only a few. Some local teachers less constrained by standards and with the barrier to access molecular techniques getting lower every year are running some wonderful longer teaching modules that allow students to dive deep into mycology and generate potentially useful data for the entire mycological community in the form of DNA barcodes. A hands on experience with a lab often run in AP Biology courses that uses mushrooms to talk about enzyme kinetics will also be part of the evening's activities.
