LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- A program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this summer will help elementary teachers find ways to teach science using soybeans as an example.

Groups of teachers from Nebraska and Kansas have signed up for a three-week-long seminar at UNL. The program is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the United Soybean Board.

Professor Tiffany Heng-Moss says the program is designed to let teachers experience science and help them figure out new ways to teach it.

Lincoln teacher Greg Tebo says soybeans are a good tool to teach students about agriculture, weather and soil conditions. And teaching students about soybeans helps them understand what farmers in Nebraska do.
