Educational Value


Research has shown that greenhouses improve the educational experience. The K-State Conservatory has served as an educational resource to the students of KSU and the visiting public for over 100 years.  It represents a historic building type that helped shape modern architecture. K-State’s Conservatory is historical and a valuable resource!



Educational Experience
Students prefer the hands-on approach to live specimen examination and plant identification.




Greenhouse Experience
Studies show that students with greenhouse labs score significantly higher on exams than those taught the same lessons without the greenhouse experience.
