In-Person: Engineering in the Garden Workshop

When:  Sep 26, 2024 from 09:00:00 AM to 09:00:00 PM (PT)

This workshop is held in person at Life Lab's Garden Classroom on the UC Santa Cruz Campus. 

Learn to facilitate engineering experiences for students in the garden! Participants will engage in a 3rd-5th grade unit designed for Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), in which students design and build trellises for peas in the school garden. We will make observations; design, build and test prototypes; and then build full-size trellises to grow peas. By unpacking this unit, we will learn how to facilitate engineering experiences that address real problems or needs in school gardens. You will leave with resources to lead this unit, and also a framework for designing your own engineering in the garden unit.
