Using Maize in K-12 Classrooms

 This is our second year for the Education Section in our newsletter.  Last year we had five submissions. We have eight submissions this year--more than a 50% increase!  What is very exciting is that ideas in last year's submissions helped to stimulate some of the current submissions.  Thanks to everyone who submitted their ideas and activities!
 Your ideas are needed for future editions.  If you have visited classrooms, worked with teachers, or in any other way used maize in the classroom, your colleagues would love to hear about it.  Also, if you make use of ideas submitted in the newsletter, we would love to hear about it. Vicki Chandler will act as the coordinator to assemble the Education Section of the newsletter.  Your ideas or use reports can be submitted via email, FAX, diskette, or old-fashioned mail.  It would be best to get the information by the end of December, beginning of January.
 Vicki Chandler is also attempting to keep an updated mailing list of all persons interested in maize in K-12 education.  If you did not receive a mailing Fall 1994, and would like to be added to the list, please send Vicki Chandler your complete address, telephone, FAX, and email.
