Ecology and Conservation - Plants and People

 

• Ms Salazar 308

Scientist for Tomorrow is an eight grade STEM program where teens learned about the earth, human physiology, plant structure, growth and function, and the nature of the interaction between humans and plants. At the end of this 6 week program, students built a community garden at their school. Students developed various experiments to test different elements that would affect plants in their raised beds. Teens constructed their own greenhouses and bird house to developed skills using various tools to later build their raised beds. To get a better understanding of plants and urban gardening, the teens visited the Garfield Park Conservatory and learned the motto “healthy soil means healthy vegetables means healthy us!” Students focused on the specifics of urban gardening as they toured the raised beds and learned about important considerations when gardening in the city.
