STEM-Science in the Garden Course- March 8 -April 12

Grades 5-8 | Tuesdays, 1-2:30 pm

Students use our teaching gardens as a living laboratory to begin thinking like scientists. Classes are designed to encourage exploration and discovery through hands-on activities, independent investigation, science experiments, and concept application. Our spring project will include learning to apply the scientific method to an engineered sprouting project for green walls. Bring your questions, thinking caps, and tinkering minds as we experiment on optimizing growing vertically!


Register your student and their friends for an unforgettable learning adventure!

There is a minimum enrollment of 6 students required to open classes.
